189 Relay for Life

Cancer has touched the lives of people I love. I don't know why I had never attended the Relay for Life. I guess I didn't really know what it was really all about. This weekend we were invited by a good friend and I was so touched that I think I will have a team next year. So many people remembering love ones lost. So many people celebrating victories over this dreaded diagnosis. So many people wanting to make a difference by volunteering their time.

At 9 pm that evening the lights went out in the stadium and everyone present walked in silence behind the bagpipes solo sound echoing in the darkness. Luminaries lit the way. Small white bags memorializing or honoring loved ones affected by cancer. My girls and I walked hand in hand...together...united.
