Father's Day Giveaway benefiting the American Cancer Society
Jun 10, 2018 | By: Boston Photography
For years, I have been involved in raising funds for the American Cancer Society.....why???? Well most people you meet have been impacted by cancer...whether it be a loved one, friend or themselves. Consider yourself lucky if you have not ran into the horrible "C". My personal venture with Cancer started more than 20 years ago when my grandmother (one of the most influential women in my life) was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma (bone marrow cancer). At that time, I lived states away and decided to help run my church's Cancer Support Group and participate in my first Relay For Life (American Cancer Society's largest fundraiser). This was life-changing for me. I was with my grandmother through the years, saw her treatments, and unfortunately she lost her battle. The same year I lost my Grandmother, my mother (the other most influential woman in my life) was diagnosed with FAP (a rare form of colon cancer). At that point, my husband (newly married) and I had just built our first home together in Orlando, FL but made the quick decision to move home to help take care of my Mother....and we did. Back home in VA, I again joined a Relay for Life group and started fundraising for the American Cancer Society and quickly found myself as Chair of the entire Relay For Life! We had an amazing team....we saw our Relay for Life Event go from collecting around $30,000 a year to $200,000 a year. I was so excited to be part of that and really believe in the mission and impact volunteers make. Unfortunately, my mother lost her battle with cancer almost 13 years ago and the young age of 54 years! We have got to do more and find a cure for cancer!!!!
