The Fight Never Ends

Relay For Life 2014 is over.  Planning for 2015 has already begun.

I see a survivor every year – Christy.  I met her at a client’s several years ago.  She is definitely a fighter.  This year would have been her fifth year cancer free but it came back and so she is fighting again.  She had her purple ribbon on her bald head and walked right up front with the survivor banner during the first lap for survivors.

I see another survivor every year – Clyde.  I met him at my office also several years ago.  He is a fighter too.  He is an older gentleman and he makes hot relish at home and brings me a jar every year.  He raises around eight thousand dollars every year in the fight against cancer.  Even the past two years he has raised that much money while supporting his wife who has had major health issues.  He proudly walks the survivor lap every year.

There are so many stories to hear.  So many lives touched by cancer.  The fight never ends…
