My Reason to Relay

I am participating in the American Cancer Society?s Relay For Life because I want to make a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer.

Almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love.
Cancer has has personally touched our lives in a couple ways.

My mother, Donna Merker lives in Wisconsin, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2002. And she underwent chemo therapy for it and also had a double mastectomy. She recently was diagnosed with a replase of the breast cancer this time in her lymph nodes. We are all praying for her as she fights the battle again.

My husband, Jimmy Poston was diagnosed with Colon Cancer in March of 2007. He underwent treatment and since the cancer did not respond to the treatment he had to have the mass removed. During the surgery to remove the mass, he had a major stroke and died 6/8/2007.

Every day, the American Cancer Society is helping us stay well by preventing cancer or finding it at its earliest, most treatable stages. They assist families in finding the best resources to help their friend or loved one deal with a diagnosis and their journey to get well. The American Cancer Society is also rallying communities through events like Relay For Life, to fight back and find cures for this disease.

Please join my team or make a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together, we can help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone?s life!
