Cancer survivor talks recent Relay for Life in Mt. Pleasant

To the editor:

Thanks to all of the folks who worked all year long to make the Relay for Life event happen year after year.

Thanks to all the teams who so willingly and so joyfully do their thing every year.

Thanks to all the sponsors, individuals and who ever that contribute to the fight against cancer.

This year?s event was great, a refreshing speaker, an eventful survivors gathering and a good meal, nice displays and the silent auction is always exciting and rewarding. However, attendance was a bit weak.

As a 24-year survivor of colon cancer, surgery and taking chemo treatments once a week for one year, give me reason and beyond, to say ?thank you?, we appreciate what you all do and have done for us.

Hopefully, we will keep this event in mind for next year and increase the attendance numbers for such a passionate cause.

Thank you. Life is great.
