American Cancer Society Relay for Life

Why do I Relay?
My main reason to relay is for my husband, Joe. He is a cancer SURVIVOR! I know that Joe is here with me today because of all the research that has been done through the American Cancer Society. Nobody knows how much I truly appreciate every single doctor, nurse or worker at Heywood Hospital where Joe was treated, every doctor/scientist who has ever researched cancer and found treatments, every survivor who went through the first trial treatments that then became regular treatments and every cancer patient who lost their battle because they made a difference in all research that has been done.
"Relay For Life is much more than a walk around a track, though. It is a time to remember those lost to cancer and celebrate those who have survived. It is a night for people who have shared the same experience to comfort and console one another. It's also a time when we can all come together to help support the life-saving mission of the American Cancer Society and work together towards a cancer-free future.
Most importantly, Relay gives YOU the power to help in the fight against cancer. By joining together as volunteers and donors, our efforts help the American Cancer Society strive toward a future where cancer doesn't take the lives of our friends and family. Register today to become a part of the Relay phenomenon. Together we will fuel the work – and the hope – that can help make a cancer-free future a reality."
The Remission Mission is our relay team. Please join us! Whether you come for 1-2 hours, a few hours or the whole relay, we really would like all our friends and family to be there to experience how great and important this event is! Just think, you only have to walk for one hour, a cancer patient has to live with cancer their whole life.

No one should have to face their journey alone, and with the help of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life, no one has to. I hope you will join me at the Relay on June 8th and 9th at Mount Wachusett Community College.
Thank You,
Dianne Rollo
