Cancer survivors: Thanks, Relay supporters

On behalf of my wife, a cancer survivor, and myself who is surviving cancer, I would like to thank everyone who participated in Bellevue’s second annual “American Cancer Society Relay for Life” on Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8. We were deeply touched by the respect shown all of us in the purple “Survivor” T-shirts and surprised to see the large amount of young people (teenagers) in attendance.

Had it not been for the great amount of cancer research done over the last decades, I doubt Janna and I would be alive today. Thank you American Cancer Society and everyone who has donated to its cause.
