Our Relay for Life event was this past Friday night. When I posted about Relay for Life last year I told you how I got involved in this annual fundraiser and about my best friend CJ's longtime battle with ovarian cancer. At this time last year she was diagnosed with her 2nd recurrence and was to begin chemo again. We were not sure what the future was going to hold for her or if she would even be with us this year for Relay.
I praise God that she has beat it AGAIN and she is here and thriving!
The theme of this year's event was "Holidays." Our team chose Columbus Day and one of the crafty men on our team built this...
This is Jimmy (Mr. Crafty - the man who built the ship) - he is saluting the survivors as they begin the Relay and walk by in the first lap known as the Survivor's Lap.
CJ is on the left side holding the banner and the young girl on the right side of the banner is Jackie - she is Dakota's age, a good friend of ours and a cancer survivor herself. I will tell you more about her family in another post - they need lots of prayers! They are leading the Survivor's Lap
This is CJ's beautiful family
This is my dear friend, Mardi who was a huge help this year! This was her first year helping us with Relay...it won't be her last - she did a great job!!
Last but not least....my goofy husband -
