I created this blog when my sweet little girl, Kristen, was diagnosed with cancer, for the third time. After fighting for almost 3 years Kristen was called home to that same God who gave her life. One of my favorite quotes comes from Neal A. Maxwell- "Those who "plow in hope" not only understand the law of the harvest but they also understand what growing seasons are all about. True, those with genuine hope may see their proximate circumstances shaken like a kaleidoscope at times, yet with the "Eye of faith" they still see divine design." Kristen blessed lives and continues to do so. Her light continues to shine. As for me, I continue to "plow in hope" knowing well that Kristen is mine for eternity. Families can be together forever!

Relay for Life

Relay For Life is a life-changing event that helps communities 
across the globe celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, 
remember loved ones lost, 
and fight back against the disease.

Our local relay will be held
July 20-21
at Murray Park.
July 20th happen to be the day Kristen went to heaven.
This will be her 2 year anniversary.
What a fabulous way to remember and honor Kristen.

There will be a survivors lap where survivors take to the track and celebrate.
Next there sill be a Luminaria Ceremony
where we will remember loved ones lost to the disease.  
Candles are lit inside bags filled with sand, 
each one bearing the name of a person touched by cancer, 
and participants  walk a lap in silence.
There will also be a "fight back" ceremony where participants
make a personal commitment to save lives by taking
action to fight cancer.

The walks begins at 6:30 pm on July 20th
it continues through the night until 10:00 am July 21st.
There needs to be at least one member from our team on the track at all times.
We are in need of Team Members!
If you live in the area and would like to participate,
please sign up on our fund raising page.

Please join us as we join 
 more than 3.5 million people in 5,000 communities in the United States, 
                                          along with additional communities in 20 other countries, 
                                          as we gather to take part in this global phenomenon and raise 
                                       much-needed funds and awareness to save lives from cancer.

She is my motivation and my reason for continuing the fight against cancer.
                                                                         She is my angel
