The story about how I lost my grandfather to cancer.
Hi, my name is Taylor and I am 14 years old. When I was 9 years old my grandfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was a fun, loving, and funny guy. He was also one of my best friends. He fought hard, but after a short battle with cancer he passed away on March 23/2008. I take part in Relay For Life so no one else has to lose their best friend the way i did. R.I.P Papa <3
I am a year and 5 Months in remission and it feels like my life is finally getting back on track. I never would have been where I am now if I did not have the help of my family and friends.
I was diagnosed with Lymphoma the summer of 2011. I had recently graduated high school and I thought my life was over at the point when my Doctor told me I had Cancer. I went through Chemo and 2 surgeries within the span of 4 months. I am now Cancer free :) It was a hard and emotional journey getting to this point. I had many many people helping me through it all and that support meant a lot to me and my family. I hope that I am able to give back as much as they gave too me.
I want to help.
Starting my own team
A couple of years ago, I lost my grandmother to cancer. I wasn't very close to her, but that didn't matter. I wanted to help find a cure. I wanted to help. I want to start my own team, with some family and friends. I plan to very soon, I hope other young people my age will get inspired and make a difference.
5 years already, miss you everyday
I Relay for a reason close to my heart.
I Relay for a reason close to my heart. This year marks 5 years mom was taken away from us! My mom battled with Cancer for 5 years before she passed away at the early age of 57 in 2008. All at the same time my Dad has fought and so far won the battle with Cancer as well for the last 6 years. When mom was diagnosed we didn't know what to expect when they said incurable. I was 24 at the time she was diagnosed and she was a fighter. Never once did she say no to helping me plan my wedding or to babysitting my son. She never complained of pain even though we all knew she was in lots of pain. She is the one who kept us strong, instead of us keeping her strong. My Dad is doing really well and all this has taught me to live each day to the fullest. I really miss my mom but know she is here with me every day and no longer suffering. Too many people have been taken away from us due to this terrible disease.
To the bravest young man I know
Brendan Rourke, one of my greatest friends forever.
One of my best friends Brendan Rourke was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma in the February of grade 12 (2011) even though he previously appeared to be perfectly healthy. His only symptom really was hip sourness after playing some sports, but this was ignored for some time. When diagnosed, it shocked our friend group and no one knew what to do or what to say.
Why I Relay? More like... why not?
A highlight into the reason why I Relay.
Everyone has a different reason for wanting to join in the fight against cancer. While I personally know many people who have been affected by this disease my main reason to Relay is because of my dad ♥
What Relay Mean to Me
I do it so someone else doesn't know what it feels like to lose their father before they should.
I participate to Relay For Life in memory of my Dad Ron. My dad was diagnosed with liver and bowel cancer the spring I was 12 years old, My dad was in my 12 year old mind invincible, there was nothing he could not do or survive. I learned the truth why too soon and too cruelly. My dad fought like he did with everything else in his life. But unfortunately after less than 11 months he could fight no longer and at the age of 57 he died leaving behind a wife, three kids ages (15, 13, and 10), his mom, two sisters, one brother and a whole lot of extended family. I join relay for life in hopes that no one else one day will have to hear the words "your dad isn't going to make it".
For You Papa
The Relay will fall around the 1 year mark of losing our beloved father, papa, husband, son, brother, and friend. Cancer robbed us all of a future with you for that, we relay for YOU papa!
I am lucky and proud to have family & friends help Relay in honor of Papa. This relay will fall around the one year anniversary of our loss and it's my personal goal as well as my team to raise $2500 in papa's honor. If we can help one other family from going through our loss or just to help support this great cause then that's what we'll do.
The Sock Story
What it means to get involved with Relay, and how the focus can bring a family together.
In the spring of 2012, my sisters and I were working hard to fundraise for the Canadian Cancer Society's Relay for Life in Whitecourt. It was the one thing that kept my sister, Vickie, going every day. It kept her fighting. She was in her fourth year of her fight with cancer. She wanted to raise money to make a difference.
10 strong years
This is about my mothers battle and all of the support she has reviced.
My mother, Michele, has been battling cancer for about 10 years now and she is currently going through chemo for her third time. She's away on a trip right now but she comes home in the next few days and I think she will be surprised to see that my father, brother, and sister have all shaved their heads to support her! I shaved my head right before she left and it made her so happy! I posted a picture of me and my mom on Facebook a few days ago and I planned on donating a dollar for every like or share it would get. PLUS ten dollars for every person who would shave their head and post a picture on my wall :) But! It’s much more popular than i thought it would be, already having close to 1300 likes and almost 600 shares. I've also had about 10 people shave their heads. WOW! Talk about support. I’m planning on donating $1000 and I’m looking for a sponsor so help cover the rest of the likes and shares on my Facebook or match my donation :) I'm excited to participate in the upcoming relay and the ones after it!
Tell your friends and family the good things Relay For Life does to celebrate, remember, and fight back.
