Relay for Life to help fight cancer

April 9, 2007


The American Cancer Society Relay for Life invites Douglas County residents to join them June 8 to celebrate their theme: Cancer can be conquered.

Teams of eight to 15 participants will take turns walking around the Free State High School track for 12 hours to raise money for cancer research. According to the American Cancer Society, cancer will be diagnosed in more than 1 million people this year.

The ceremony begins with a cancer survivors' Lap of Hope at 7 p.m. June 8. Teams can camp out while entertainment, eating, games and team-building experiences take place.

Teams must be registered by Sunday. To register your team, call Lori Kloepper at 876-2306 or send an e-mail to her at

If you are a cancer survivor and would like to take part in the relay, please call Alicia Reed at 864-7771 or send an e-mail to by April 15. Participating survivors receive a free commemorative Relay for Life T-shirt.

Support the American Cancer Society and NOT that Susan G. Kommen cancer group. Susan K's dirty secret is that it funnels part of your contribution to Planned Parenthood and its abortionists.

Gee, I feel like supporting the SGK foundation just because your comment is so childish. In case you aren't aware, Planned Parenthood saves many women by detecting early cancerous cells through much needed examinations. Plus, they have a sliding fee scale and provide cancer screening that many women couldn't otherwise afford. Thanks for letting me know that the SGK foundation supports Planned Parenthood. They will get my donation.

Your_Mom: Maybe you should do some of your own research and not take comments too seriously. Don't get your other hussy's in a stir over this.
