I am registering today for the Relay for Life and I am surprised at how emotional the registering is. So many teams named after people that have died from cancer. (A Salute to Sandy, Bradley's Blazers, Leslie's Angels to name a few) I cried as I read each team name because every one is for someone that had died from this awful disease.

For my newer readers my mom was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer in February and my Nana died one year ago on May 6th from cancer. It has been such an emotional year and participating in the relay is how I can help find a cure. 1/3 will get cancer in her lifetime. Those odds are staggering. 1/3!!

Also my new readers may have seen the countdown bar under my header up there ^^. I will be shaving my head at the relay as well.

oh barbara, I cried just reading your post. I am going in the end cancer.ca relay too... My grandma died of breast cancer, so I am a very strong advocate to find a cure.

Hugs, Joe

How about an update on your Mom? It has been a while.

Good choice of the way to spend your time.
