As part of this year's Relay for Life committee at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa, I couldn't help but be blessed of the outcome of this event. For months of prepping and planning, it was beautiful to see it all come to life. Despite the strong wind and rain, the event still went on.
To all survivors: you are the heart of all Relay for Life events across the nation. You are why we relay. As much as we want to instill hope in your lives, you also give us hope to live life to its fullest. You live life as though cancer doesn't define you, which is truly inspirational. Being personally affected by cancer with my family members + friends, I know how hard it can be to move on with life. But then that's the beauty of life, to get up from what brings you down and to become an even stronger person than whom you already were.
A special thank you to all those who made this event possible. This Relay for Life event wouldn't be possible without you all! Let us continue to be the hope for all those affected by cancer. Help us FINISH THE FIGHT!
