Relay for Life celebrates cancer survivors' triumph

Cancer survivor, Jackie Bush told us, "I am a 15 year, three-time cancer survivor".

"I think we can get there", she said. "The first relay we came to right after I finished my treatment, it was really awesome to see all these people here committing and dedicated to creating a future without cancer".

"Both of these special people bore the disease without complaint or self-pity, never asking 'why me?'" She is now cancer-free, she said.

"I think it brings people together, and it is deeply meaningful to an bad lot of people", he said.

Event organizers said Warren County consistently raises more than $300,000 each year to support patients, caregivers, and their families, along with programs and research. The community raised over 77-thousand dollars.

Ledbetter, who has lived in East Tennessee her whole life, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.

"In memory of my mother", said Janet Crawford of Wellsburg about why she participates in Relay for Life.

Tammy describes Relay as an emotional experience and was blown away by how everyone came together from all over the county to share their experiences. In the last quarter century, about $1.25 million has been raised for the American Cancer Society. We need to work together as a big family. Diagnosed with uterine cancer in 1977, Ely said that diagnosis was hard to overcome. "That can only happen through research".

The Ellis Count Relay for Life was Friday night at the Downtown Pavilion. The New Fairfield Relay for Life Committee has a team named "Committed to Finding a Cure 2018". We have nearly 200 survivors here, and over 40 great teams relaying in support of each other and in beating this disease.

Million Dollar Fitness is located in a attractive old church on Bonds Hill, Waterside. New teams are added every year.

" Donations for the raffle prizes include a 24" Nordmende HD TV and hundreds of pounds worth of vouchers and goodies and Starbucks are very kindly sponsoring the coffee too". Relay for Life included an opening ceremony, a survivor/caregiver walk, a luminaria ceremony, and a closing ceremony.

This year's event will take place on Jun e23 at St Columb's Park.
