Relay for Life 2013

Every year, our town host a Relay for Life at the high school football field.
The past two years, I've been invited to participate, given a t-shirt and walked the Survivors lap.
Last year, I went around the track in a wheelchair.
This year....I walked.
Next year I will run!

My moms company has had a booth set up both years. There are different booths set up over the field with games, face painting, information, etc.
Some family went with us, and the little ones had a blast!

I used to think that this sort of thing was a bit silly.
Ya'll know the survivor ribbons that people put on their cars?
I thought they were silly, too.
Now I don't, though.
If you've ever had cancer, you are PROUD to survive it!
You want to shout it to the world and let everybody know YOU DID IT!

Relay for Life 2012, 6 months post diagnosis. 

I'm looking forward to Relay for Life 2014.
Then I will be cancer survivor times TWO!
