After losing 3 sisters to cancer, how one woman honours their memory at Relay For Life
The words “you have cancer” can change everything – for the person who hears them and for their loved ones too.
Linda knows first-hand how a family member’s diagnosis can affect everyone closest to them because her own family has faced the cancer journey together many times.
Over the course of just 8 years, Linda lost 3 of her sisters to cancer. She opens up about her family’s experience and how she found a meaningful way to celebrate the lives and legacies of her sisters through the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life.
Proving that community is bigger than cancer @(Model.HeadingTag)>
Community is a feeling – and Relay For Life just wouldn't be the community it is without our dedicated participants like Linda.
“I Relay because I know I’m helping others impacted by cancer,” shares Linda. “I see everyone else’s stories of courage and hope – how can I stop?”
On June 12, 2021, Relay For Life will unite a community of people across the country committed to changing the future of cancer. While this year’s Relay will look a bit different, our virtual Relay event will include all the signature components of our in-person events – including an opening ceremony with inspirational stories, performances from incredible entertainers, a luminary celebration that pays tribute to those we love, and more.
Support Relay For Life and help us prove that community is bigger than cancer.
