OT: Relay for Life
Hello all! As many of you know, our DS has been fighting a battle against cancer since 2001, with a recurrence in 2004 that resulted in the loss of his left leg. He is now cancer free and is letting nothing hold him back from the things he loves to do.

Part of the way we are supporting him is by participating in the Relay for Life that the American Cancer Society puts on in various locations around the country.

This year, DS has been asked to be the Honorary Co-Chairman of our local relay. He will be leading the Survivor Lap around the track & will have the opportunity to say a few things to the crowd. (He's only 11, so I have a feeling this will be a short speech. ;-) )

Our team for the relay has a pretty lofty goal that we're trying to meet, and, with Amy's permission, I would like to ask for your help, if at all possible. Every little bit helps. My donation page is here.

We would truly appreciate any help you can offer.
