Relay For Life

Last Friday, at a Relay for Life event, hundreds of teenagers raised over 130,000 dollars to support the American Cancer Society. WHOOP WHOOP!!!

Miss Sofia and friends

It was hard to see all of the luminaria for those whose lives have been impacted by cancer.

This one, in memory of my very dear friend, was especially tough for me.

Two years ago my very dear friend Amy attended the Relay for Life event. Shortly thereafter cancer took her life. I miss her terribly!

At this year's Relay event, Amy's sweet daughter Emily, alongside her dad, bravely shared, with all in attendance, what it was like to witness Amy's courage as she dealt with cancer, her hope of eternity, and the legacy Amy left behind.

She did her Mom proud! It was a beautiful tribute! That girl left me in tears! 

And though it's tough to see all of those lights, shining for those affected by cancer, it is inspiring to see so many young people fighting for a cure!

Well done!!
