Relay for Life

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005


I have just signed up to take part in our local American Cancer Society Relay for Life. The event will take place on September 17 and 18. As a three time breast cancer survivor, I have always wanted to take part in a relay and just never did it.

I have lost so many family members and friends to devastating cancers – liver cancer, melanoma, pancreatic cancer and brain tumors. I can’t help but think what a difference we could make if some of the money being spent on an insane war could be used to fund cancer research. Well, that won’t happen, so we must do what we can in other ways.

If you would like to make a donation or just follow my progress, here is a link to my Relay for Life Web Page. I just realized that I cannot link directly to my web page for some reason. So do the following: From the menu on the left, click on Donate to a Participant. Type in my first and last name: Gerrie Congdon. This will take you to my Relay for Life web page.
