We have a little more than 2 weeks to go before this year’s “Virtual” Relay for Life. There is still plenty of time if you would like to become a team member or donate. I have included instructions on how to become a team member or make a donation. We currently have 5 team members: Rachael Garrison, Jean Halme, Carol Millington, Marilyn and myself and have raised just over $500.
While most of our focus the past few months has been on COVID-19, it’s long term impact pales in comparison to cancer. The American Cancer Society projected that in 2019 there would be 1,762,450 new cancer cases and 606,880 cancer deaths in the United States. The good news, if there is any, is that the overall cancer death rate dropped continuously from 1991 to 2016 by a total of 27%. Even though this year’s event will be “Virtual”, there is nothing “Virtual” about cancer. We all have family and friends who have been or are being ravaged by cancer. This is our opportunity to honor those people and to do our part in the fight against cancer.
