Two relays for life!

If you look over to left side of our blog, you'll notice we have added two links for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life. The first is one in honor of Bill's late brother Jim. His oldest daughter Amy, has a link to raise pledges for her relay for life which will be held June 6th in Portage, Indiana. Amy's goal is to raise $5000 for the American Cancer Society in honor of her Dad.

The second link is for my dear friend Brandy Vargas who is a survivor and praying to stay that way. Her relay will be held May 16-17 in Houston, Texas. Brandy has a modest goal of $100, but we all know she will be able to raise SO much more than that!! ;-)

And one more runner will be out there raising money to fight cancer as well. My friend and sorority sister, Amy Smith will be traveling from Chicago to Nashville to participate in a marathon to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of Brandy. LLS has done so much to support Brandy in her fight. Amy has exceeded her goal of $3,400 and raised over $3800! RUN AMY RUN!!! We can't wait to hear all about it!

If you are able, please click on the links and donate to both of the teams fighting for those can't fight and honoring those who are and are not still with us.
