Plenty of reasons to run Relay for Life

I relay for family, for the parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, spouses, and children affected by cancer.

CRYSTAL SCHIERMAN

I relay for family, for the parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, spouses, and children affected by cancer.

I relay for the many families whose lives are bombarded and turned upside down by cancer.

I relay for my family who supported me, made sacrifices for me and cheered me on when I was diagnosed with leukemia at the age of nine.

Without the support of my family, I would not be here today.

I relay for the parents who watch their children suffer and support them through cancer treatments.

I relay for my parents who stood by my side through numerous treatments and were forced to make many difficult decisions, but still cheered me on when I needed support and pushed me forward when I needed some tough love.

I relay for the children who are forced to grow up way too fast, to endure cancer treatments and their side effects while they fight for their lives.

I relay for me. I relay to give back in gratitude of all the work, dedication and sacrifice that went into finding the treatments that saved my life.

I relay for my children, wishing and hoping that cancer will never impact their lives and because I cannot imagine being told that my child has cancer and having to watch them fight for their life.

I relay because the support that the Canadian Cancer Society provides to individuals and families affected by this horrible disease is invaluable.

I relay in hopes that treatments will improve, side effects will lessen and with the dream that one day no family will have to experience this disease because cancer will be cured!

Stettler’s annual Relay for Life is scheduled for Friday, June 15.
