My husband, daughter and I went to the Regional Relay For Life Kick-Off tonight and we "Rocked Like It Was 1985"!! Not only was it fun, but it is so inspiring to hear all the survivors and caregivers tell their stories with such courage and strength, to hear all that has been accomplished in cancer research, and to witness the numbers of volunteers that work so hard to raise money to help toward the goal of finding a cure for cancer. We all have our stories of loved ones who have battled cancer, some winning the battle, some not, but to be there with the hundreds of others who put hour upon hour of volunteer time for such a great cause is so rewarding. We had a great time dressing in '80 garb, sharing fun and excitement with others, but more importantly, just knowing that it's the beginning of another year of preparing for the big event this summer that will bring more money to go toward reaserch, treatment and prevention of cancer is a wonderful thing!! RELAY FOR LIFE ROCKS!!! Our team Relays for the Elizabeth River Event in Portsmouth, VA which will be held this year on Friday, June 5, 2009. We have already raised over $2400.00 and have another fundraiser in March .. our annual Tea Party! We have a great group of people on our team and we all work hard while we have fun raising money for cancer. My daughter is Chairperson of the Activities for the Event and I help her by taking care of the children's activities .. it's fun ... we're busy ... WE LOVE IT!!!
