Role= Relay For Life of Cape Girardeau County Accounting Chair
How Long= My family participated in our first Relay For Life in 2004 in Jackson County IL at the SIU campus. After a few years our team moved to Cape Girardeau Co Relay For Life. In 2012, I volunteered to take over as Accounting Chair.
Why= One of my favorite quotes: “We make a living by what we do, but we make a life by what we give.”- Winston Churchill.
The American Cancer Society’s mission is to save lives, celebrate lives, and fight for a world without cancer. Relay For Life unites communities across the world together to honor and remember loved ones while fundraising and raising awareness for lifesaving change. My family personally has been affected by cancer with my Aunt as an Ovarian Cancer Survivor, an Uncle who lost his fight against Prostate Cancer, and my Grandma currently fighting Breast Cancer. Love you Mama!! They are the reason why the American Cancer Society’s mission to free the world from cancer is so important to me
