Long-time supporter walking this Relay for Life as a survivor

After being diagnosed with cancer in his leg at the age of 14 Kurtis Kelly now 29 has become a spokesman for the Canadian Cancer Society on P.E.I. He’s promoting and taking part in the Relay for Life this evening in Charlottetown Relay full of life

While participation has varied, Suttle estimates on average about 100 people have taken part in the Relay for Life event each year, with about 20 to 25 cancer survivors turning out. It's also an opportunity to remember and honor those who lost their battle.

"We have 12 teams registered for this year's relay and they have been out in the community raising money to support the fight against cancer, and especially important, for the Lodge That Gives in Halifax that has hosted so many cancer patients and their families throughout Cumberland County".

The night is all about recognizing those who have been through cancer; from the survivors, the caregivers, families and friends. But it's not a battle she fights alone.

Kathy Leek, 53, of Walmart's Team Kathy, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in November 2017. In fall 2015, she was having some stomach issues and began losing weight.

Ms Broomer said she started with Relay in 2010 when she lived in Pennsylvania. "One thing I've learned is that you may not know the person you are walking next to on the track, but you share the same connection in some abstract way, and that's a lovely thing to share together".

Life, he said, was little more than a blur for the next 15 months as he went through radiation and chemotherapy treatments. I worked for oncologist Dr.

Upon hearing that Hart was waiting for insurance approval, the doctor called the insurance company herself and moved along the process.

"We are fighting to save all lives, whether they live three doors down, three miles down the road or three thousand miles away", Allen said. Teams must have one participant on the track at all times. She ate healthily, exercised daily and there was no family history of cancer. "I got my pledge in, then I'd walk".

It's to symbolize that cancer never sleeps, and cancer patients don't stop because they're exhausted, and for one night, neither do the teams.

On April 14, Hart had the colonoscopy and was told she had a two-inch mass on her rectum and it needed to come out. She was also anxious how she was going to tell her family about the diagnosis.

"It hit hard when Tom died because he was so young", said Jean.

Things were looking brighter for Hart.

Fortner-Lubin's life has also been touched by cancer.

But in March, the scans showed things were growing again.

"If people want to know more before the event opens, they'll have to get involved in the planning committee", Hetzler exclaimed.
