Why is Relay for Life important for cancer survivors?

"Relay for Life is important because it's a celebration, and it brings awareness to the community. This one is special for me because I've been cancer free for 20 years."

Molly Watson, Princeton

"Relay for Life is important because it's one of the few times we can see a group of people that are survivors. It's important to see the survivors and feel hopeful."

Kaye Norlin, LaSalle

"Relay for Life is important because it gives us a chance to get together and be able to talk to others. I am a 30-year survivor."

Joyce Allen, Princeton

"Relay for Life is important, so we can get together. We feel humbled and honored. We get to see who else has been affected. Cancer affects all walks of life, and we are a common fraternity."

Bob Hayward, Princeton

"Relay for Life is important because it's like a second family. You can share personally with someone else who has experienced the same thing."

Tiffany Hidey, Princeton
