We received a story a little while ago regarding Relay for life, cancer, and family. As you read the story know that half of all men and 1/3 of all women in the US will develop cancer in their lifetime. This is just one story out of many of the people that are affected by cancer, not just those who have it, but those who know and love them too.

I’m writing this at 10:07 am on a Tuesday, 01/20/15. Today marks the third year that my aunts been gone. January 2012 was one of the toughest months of my life. It was both bitter and sweet. How you’re supposed to celebrate life after facing death is beyond me. I believe in the saying. “When someone leaves this Earth another soul entered it.” On January 20th 2012 my Aunt Judy passed after fighting a long hard battle against cancer. Colon cancer took my family that day. Just four days later, January 24th, God blessed me and my family with another life. Kinzlee Dawn was born. She does and has so many of the characteristics that my aunt had. Her laugh, body structure, and goofiness to name a few lol.
I relay so that my baby girl never has to know the feelings that I had to face in those four short days.
I relay so that no ones aunts, mothers, or grandparents has to miss out on meeting the tiny miracles of
I relay so that other little girls get to know and experience the love and memories of their loved ones and
cherish it for a lifetime.
I relay NOW so the one day NOBODY has to.

Relay for life will be holding a relay right here in Sand Springs on June 6th this year! It’s not too late to sign up and raise some funds, so no one else has to know the pain of having, or knowing someone who has cancer.
