Relay for Life

24 May

What a great weekend at Upper Arlington High School. Michelle Davis and the Relay for Life did an outstanding job organizing a first class event. I was honored to be invited to be a part of it and can’t wait for next year. Meeting other survivors, caregivers and some just general, all-around do-gooders was an uplifting experience.

This far out from treatment, I tend to forget what a hard and harrowing ordeal it was on my family and me. As we circled the track with luminaries lit in honor those who were not so fortunate as me, I was overcome with a confusing mixture of sadness and joy. Glad that I had recovered but felt almost a sense of guilt for my good fortune. I was reassured by the fact that all of these people were willing to spend a large chunk of their weekend (plus countless hours in preparation) to help fight cancer and provide comfort for those who lives it has touched. I can’t thank them enough.
