To the editor:
I wish to take this opportunity to say thank you to all who supported the American Cancer Society's ninth Relay for Life in Lake Placid on Sept. 15. The community support for this event makes a difference in so many lives.
The money raised supports cancer research, patient and family education and services. We have many survivors in our community who have benefitted from what we accomplish on this day
The purpose of the event is:
First to CELEBRATE the survivors and those family members and friends who were there to help us through the CANCER experience
Second to REMEMBER those who have not survived cancer - many of our loved ones have lost their lives to cancer
And finally to FIGHT BACK - by raising money so that a cure can be found against this dreaded disease.
Thank you for all your support.
You have helped make a difference in our ongoing fight for a cancer-free world.
