I am participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life because I WANT to make a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer. I WANT to celebrate more birthdays and less cancer. I WANT to wake up and my dream be a reality, my dream where cancer is gone.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, some more than others, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love. Cancer kept creeping into my life completely uninvited and made me realize that kicking cancers butt was my only option!

Cancer is scary. However, it forces a beautiful thing, which is the ability to celebrate life. Life is a precious, yet beautiful thing, that shouldn’t only be commemorated when it is threatened by cancer, but is should be celebrated every day and every birthday.

I agree with my sister, Samantha, when I say that “although my heart has been heavy with the pain of those battling cancer, I remain hopeful for a cure. I remain hopeful for more battles to be won than lost by those fighting for their life.” I am always dreaming of a tomorrow where lives are celebrated and not lost from cancer.

Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friend or loved one deal with a diagnosis and their journey to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease.

I am going to walk in memory of my Grandma and in support of my inspirational best friend, Makenna. I am asking for a donation in order to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together, we can turn my DREAM into a reality and help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone’s life!!

  1. You are amazing. My greatest fear used to be rejection. Now I think I fear being insignificant most. You have a great heart. I don’t imagine you will ever have that fear.
