In one week I will be participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. ACS is not political. ACS simply works to find a cure for cancer, improve treatments, educate people to prevent cancer, and provide compassionate, life-saving care.

I am walking in the Relay for my dad, who is a prostate cancer survivor. I am walking for my Aunt Judy, who had breast cancer and died before any of us knew she was sick. I am walking for friends who have overcome breast cancer, colon cancer, endometrial cancer, and testicular cancer. And I’m walking for friends who aren’t here anymore to walk beside me.

Please join me in saving lives. Thank you.
