Relay for Life

I am SOOOOOO excited to say that I am participating in Relay for Life this year in Burk. I am team captain for our church, and promoted the cause last weekend. Unexpectedly, I had 31 people sign up for this event! I was only expecting 10 to 15 at most, so I was super excited and surprised that so many members of our church decided to participate. So, I thought in today's blog, I would share a little about why I decided to participate in Relay for Life.

The reason I Relay.

 In September of 2008, she was diagnosed with Stage 4 Small Bowel cancer and expected to live only a month more at last. She passed away in February of 2009. My grandmother was an amazing woman. She loved her children and grandchildren more than anything. She always came to every function and supported us in everything we pursued. She was an amazing Christian woman who always taught us to have good Christian values and the morals of excellent people.

I used to think my grandmother and I had nothing in common, but as I get older, I see a lot of resemblances in myself and her. I'm proud of that. :)
