Relay For Life Celebrates Survivorship, Hope of Conquering Cancer With Community Kick-Off

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life celebrates the lives of hundreds of local residents who have survived cancer, while offering the hope of finding a cure.

To honor the incredible strength and courage of cancer survivors, all area survivors are invited to attend a community kick-off Soup Supper on Saturday, March 29, 2008 at the Methodist Church in Memphis from 4:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

We would like area survivors to join us for homemade soup, sandwiches and dessert at no charge. We want to honor our survivors, they let others know that there is HOPE for tomorrow. The general public is also invited to attend this Survivor Celebration.

The Relay For Life event in Memphis, June 27, 2008 is an all-night community event bringing together teams of families, friends, churches, neighborhoods, and businesses-all with the same goal of curing cancer. Teams of walkers keep a continuous presence on the track throughout the night, walking in shifts to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

Programs include Reach to Recovery, providing one-on-one support for breast cancer patients; nutritional supplement and a transportation card.
