Know someone who is currently fighting cancer, maybe someone who has lost his or her fight against cancer or someone who is a cancer survivor?
Answering yes to one or all of the above, then you already have the answer.
The annual 12-hour fundraising event, scheduled for May 22-23 at the Clay County YMCA, that raises money and awareness to help fight cancer.
One of those ways is sharing the unique stories and experiences about how cancer affects individuals and families.
There are stories of courageous victories, stories of new battles and hope, others in memorial of lost loved ones and friends, but with the sharing comes encouragement others might need to "keep on keeping on."
With that spirit in mind, The Brazil Times wants to feature profiles of cancer survivors and Relay participants about why it is important to take action in fight the cancer in upcoming editions. For a $5 donation, profiles will consist of no more than 100 words along with a picture that can be provided or we can take one for you. Profiles can be e-mailed (email@example.com ), but will not be placed in the paper until the donation is made at the office.
Profiles will be run on a first-come-first-serve basis and all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society.
If you would like to share your reason for why you Relay or honor someone who has lost their fight against cancer, contact The Brazil Times during normal business hours (8 a.m.-4 p.m.) at 446-2216.
