  • Piper Courtney Mac Pherson leads the Survivors Victory Lap around Centre 200 on Friday night at Sydney’s 16th annual Relay For Life

After the June 19 wrap-up meeting, the Venango County Relay for Life committee will begin to plan next year's 25th anniversary event, according to Carey. During the survivor lap, cancer survivors and people now affected by the disease walk the track to be cheered and supported by friends, family and caregivers. For the next lap, the survivors will be joined by their supporters for the Caregivers' Lap, and then a Team Captains Lap will follow.

At the same time, Co-Chair Gayle DiBenedetto continues to help by supporting planning, logistics, and survivorship activities.

The festivities will start with team fundraising, bouncy castles and slides, yoga, karate, and tattoos done by Wheels of Faith, a silent auction, and the opening of the Relay Store all at 4 p.m. This is the second year that Mcdonald hosted the relay at its downtown park.

After nightfall, participants held a special vigil, lighting the walkways with luminarias adorned with names of individuals who have lost their battle with cancer, are now fighting cancer, or have managed to overcome it.

As she did this, Braga said she began to realize that what she was going through was also about perspective and she realized that she couldn't worry or have fears about what was happening.

"People will say to me, I don't know how you keep fighting?" I do this because I love it.

Jodee Truskey, Phoebe's mother, thought it was a stretch when her daughter set a $6,000 target for herself this year. "When a cancer patient says they're exhausted, it's a exhausted that a non-patient doesn't understand".

Friends drove her to every radiation appointment in London, which she never attended alone.

"(Survivors are) the reason why we plan this event", Zeller said. "Seeing their courage to embrace their own cancer story in their everyday lives is such an inspiration to me". About 300 people were there during the first hour of the event.

"I was a co-manager at the Liberty Walmart and my co-workers were there for me from the beginning", Leek said.

"Our mission is to save lives faster", Castillo said. I Relay because I LOVE People!

"I Relay for those who can't".

After joining a support group called LifeSpring and talking with other survivors, Kathy Lowe said she learned to embrace her feelings around the disease. "The event offers so much that the entire family can be involved in", he said.

Digby's Relay for Life is scheduled for June 16 at the Digby arena and Yarmouth will have its Relay for Life June 23 at the Mariners Centre.

For Tonya Cooper, its one she's been taking step by step since her initial diagnosis on December 6th.

The preteens and teens organized a lemonade stand to raise money for the American Cancer Society. "Not only will you be making a difference, but you will have fun doing it". "The luminary candlelit lap is so moving and speaks volume of our pain and our resilience".

The chance to help support those who have had cancer or are now battling it is here with this year's Relay for Life Lamar County. Since then, the combined volunteer teams have organized their annual fundraiser for cancer research at the West Warwick location, a central spot for all Kent County participants.

For Ms Broomer, there is no one thing she looks forward to each year.

"It's everything. The survivors - listening to their stories and their journeys". Jodee encouraged her to raise money too.

She knew she had a lump, but nothing appeared in her mammogram.

"I was exhausted, but I was also caring for my two young granddaughters and thought, 'Now I know why you don't have children when you are 46, '" she recalled.
