“Cancer” what a devastating word in our world today. Each one of us has been affected in one way or another with this disease. My family has known all too much about the battles with cancer. My dad, grandparents, aunts and uncles along with other family members and friends who lost their battle with cancer.

In 2003 my sister Teresa Evans Davis was diagnosed with cancer. An invitation was given to her from the Relay to carry the torch in the survivors lap from that time on in honor of her T’s Team was formed for the Relay for Life. With family members and friends, our church and youth group from the Olive Hill Wesleyan Church we joined together to make a difference in the fight for cancer so we became T’s Team.

Teresa is my hero; she is such an inspiration in my life. She has that extra special something about her. As sisters we have a very special bond between us. Teresa us still battling cancer, but through prayer, the good Lord above, doctors, medicine and treatments she is still with us today. Even more determined to win her fight with cancer, because you see she has a beautiful granddaughter Kaitlyn Nichole Rodgers and in July another grandbaby on the way. We all hope and pray for a cure someday.

Please join us Friday, June 22-23 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. at the Olive Hill Shrine Park for the American Cancer Society Relay for Life. The survivors lap will begin the walk at 7 p.m. At dusk a very special luminary ceremony to remember individuals who have been affected by cancer. Candles are lit in honor of or in memory of cancer patients and placed around the track. During relay teams of people walk around the track, we enjoy games, food, music, and also camping out on the grounds. Remember, there is no finish line until we find a cure.
