Relay for Life on March 12-13 at Waianae High School

Relay For Life is my opportunity to celebrate loved ones who have won their battle against cancer, remember those no longer with us, and fight back against this disease that robs so many of so much.

More than just walking the track, I’m fundraising! Because of the donations I collect, more people in more communities:

  • Have the information and tools they need to help reduce their risk of getting cancer or find the disease early, when it’s easiest to treat
  • Have a place to turn for help 24/7
  • Benefit from the progress being made toward finding cancer’s causes and cures
  • Get access to lifesaving screenings and treatment

Please join me in fighting cancer and consider supporting my fundraising efforts by making a donation. The links at the bottom of this email makes it so simple! Dollars raised bring us one step closer to a world with less cancer and more birthdays, a world where not another life is lost to the disease.

Thank you so much for your support. Together, we will finish the fight!  Relay is this weekend at Wai`anae High School – Sat & Sun.  Come by if can!  I’ll be in the keiki activity tent (face painting) 🙂

Mahalo nui nui!!
