Father proud of daughter at Relay for Life
We took part in the Westshore Relay for Life on May 30. Our daughter Jennifer just finished 6-1/2 months of chemotherapy for colon cancer. She’s been such a strong lady. When she found out she had cancer and was going to have chemo, she didn’t complain or feel sorry for herself, she just said, “Well now I can walk in the Relay for Life.” She not only walked the Survivors Lap, she led it carrying the banner.
I had made it seven months with no tears, but they flowed during the march listening to Celine Dion singing “I’m Alive,” as Jennifer led the survivors walk. I can truly say there were no dry eyes in the house. My wife, Diane, asked me if her mascara was running and I said I couldn’t see – my eyes were so full of tears.
