It is that time of the year again. Another year has gone by, and people are still getting cancer, so we are still raising money to help fight it. The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is coming up, and I will be walking again. I began volunteering for ACS when I was in junior high. Cancer touches everyone, and I am no exception. My grandmother on my father's side is 1 of 10 children. Every single one of them had cancer of one type or another. My grandfather on my father's side has cancer right now. There is cancer on akp's side too. We've had friends who have battled cancer. Some have won and some have lost. We know people who are fighting the fight right now, and we sure hope they win.

I just celebrated my 6 year anniversary in April. I went in for a blood test today. I need to schedule an ultrasound. Between blood tests and ultrasounds they are able to monitor me and catch any early warning signs of cancer returning. So far, so good, and we hope it stays that way.

We don't think hoping is enough, so we also do what we can to support organizations that provide cancer support and encourage cancer research. This event is one of the ways we show our support.

If you can donate to support my walk this year, please do so, or please support somebody else (or walk yourself!) - it all goes to the same place. If you can't donate please consider passing on the link to somebody who might be able to.
