Relay for Life is an event that has impacted me and so many others. Whether its raising money for cancer awareness or for research, people from all over come together to stand up and fight for a common cause. That cause being cancer.
I relay for my mom who was diagnosed with kidney cancer when I was in middle school and my cousin who was diagnosed with stage 4 leukemia at a young age. Cancer does not discriminate, whether its gender, age or race.
I have been an active member in this event for 6 years and continue to raise money in support for it. I now represent the University of Central Florida's Student Government Relay for Life team and would really appreciate any donation for this cause. All donations will go back to cancer research in efforts to find a cure.
