Cancer fighters needed on Whidbey

Did you know that cancer is fast becoming the number one killer in the world? How many of you have had cancer or know someone who is currently fighting? Are you a cancer survivor? If so, I need your help!

My name is Susanne Hanscom and I am the Team Development chair for the 2012 Whidbey Island Relay For Life. I am looking for people to celebrate:  that means you, survivors of cancer and you, caregivers!

Do you know what a caregiver is? Caregivers are the people who selflessly give physical and emotional comfort to those fighting in the battle for their lives. I am also looking for people to help us remember: Friends and family that want to join with us to honor our loved ones that have lost their fight.

I am looking for people who want to fight back  against this awful disease. If you want to make a difference today, please contact me: susannerflnw@gmail.com. There is a place for everyone!  Together, let’s create a world with more birthdays!
