To the Editor:
On behalf of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Glen Ellyn, Wheaton and Winfield committee, I would like to say “Wow!”
Thanks to your support, Relay For Life of Glen Ellyn, Wheaton and Winfield had 44 teams participate, celebrated alongside survivors and caregivers and watched as hundreds of luminaria were lit to honor loved ones.
While the event was a great celebration of survivors, remembrance of those we have lost and an all-around success, we are still $35,000 short in reaching our goal to help in the fight against cancer. Fortunately, if you missed Relay, you can still play a part in helping others stay well, get well and fight back.
The money we raise through Relay enables the American Cancer Society to continue to lead the way in advancing cancer prevention by funding cancer research, programs to help the newly-diagnosed and services to cancer patients such as free brand new wigs and free rides to and from treatment.
Chances are at some point in your life you, a family member, a friend or a coworker will be touched by cancer. By donating to Relay not only are you fighting cancer, you’re joining the one’s you love most in the battle they fight every day.
To donate visit relayforlife.org or call your local American Cancer Society at 630-392-1141 opt 3. Thank you for joining us at Relay this year, and we hope you will continue to partner with us to save lives faster and create a world with more birthdays!
