A few days ago, I had the opportunity to go to the Relay for Life. This is the American Cancer Society's largest fundraiser and proceeds go to the development of medications to manage cancer as well as finding a cure.
The woman in this picture is a breast cancer survivor and said the experience has taught her that she is a strong person. She recommended the book "I Put the Can in Cancer", written by Imogen Gough.
There are many people who have survived cancer or whose lives have been affected by loved ones lost from cancer. Each story is truly heroic.
Inner strength and positive thinking is a precious commodity.
Taking a moment to think about those who lost their fight against the disease.
Celebrating "birthdays" of those who have survived!
If you have not attended a Relay for Life it is a truly wonderful experience. Click the link and support the next event coming to your neck of the woods!
