Watching a sea of purple clad folks make their first lap as 2012 cancer survivors was and emotional time for me. Last night was the opening ceremony for the Puyallup Relay for Life held at Sparks Stadium. In my family, we have 2 survivors. Both walked in this weekend’s Relay. My dad was treated for prostate cancer 2 years ago, and praise God, he is free and clear now! Mom is being treated for lung cancer with weekly chemo. My family and I are blessed to have them with us. I was able to join my sister and her girls in watching our parents make their “victory lap”. Here are a few photos of the event.
This is what love and commitment looks like.
