In Memory of Mom - American Cancer Society's Relay for Life

I usually post this on Mom's birthday, but Relay is being held early this year.

Mom's been gone almost 13 years now and there's not a day that passes that I don't miss her laughter and love. I wish that Kyle and Alani could have known their wonderful grandma.

So in her memory, I will be walking in Relay For Life - the annual fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.

If you're in the area, please come and join me! I'll be camped out in with Redwood City Employee team - Kyle is supposed to walk and camp out too and he's all excited! I'll definitely be walking some of the late night/early shifts. If you see people splatted with snow cone syrup - that's my team.

The Luminaria Ceremony is at dusk - hundreds of luminarias will be lit and will continue to glow all night long. Every year, as I read all the messages on the luminarias - happy & sad - I remember all the people I've lost to cancer - and those who are still fighting it.

American Cancer Society – Relay for Life
April 26-27, 2008 from 10am Saturday to 10am Sunday
Sequoia High School 1201 Brewster Ave Redwood City, CA 94401

We walk to raise money for research and services.


I walk in memory of Mom, Grandpa, Auntie Mako, Uncle Tosh, Irene, Emi, Dad Burns, Jenny, Rick, Barbara Greene, Vicki Brown, Genie Fon, Dale Switzer and so many others.

I walk in honor of Mom Burns, Tetsuo, Ceci, Debbi, Carol K., family, co-workers, and friends..

Donations of any demonination are welcome! My donation page can be found here.

Thanks!
Debbie
