Like you, I know too many people whose lives have been touched by cancer. That’s why I’ve joined the American Cancer Society to help finish the fight by participating in my community Relay For Life event. This will be my eighth year relaying. I am walking in memory of my grandfather, Richard Poirier, who lost his battle with multiple myeloma in 2005.
A Relay For Life event is much more than just walking around a track. At the event, we celebrate loved ones who have won their battle against cancer, remember those no longer with us, and fight back against this disease that robs so many of so much.
The good news? Because of the funds raised by Relay participants like me, more people in our community:
• Have the information and tools they need to avoid getting cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat
• Have a place to turn for help 24/7
• Benefit from the progress being made toward finding cancer’s causes and cures
• Get access to lifesaving screenings and treatment.
I will be participating on July 11-12 at the Relay For Life of Ravalli County in Hamilton. I would truly appreciate your tax-deductible donation. Donations (checks made out to ACS) can be mailed to me at 309 7th Street, Stevensville MT 59870. Every dollar raised brings us one step closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays – a world where not another life is lost to the disease.
If you know anyone who would be interested in joining or supporting our American Cancer Society Relay For Life event, please tell them about this or have them call me at 207-1822.
Thank you so much for your support. Together, we will finish the fight!
