I looked up stats on cancer today and I was amazed. Two that hit me were: "On the basis of current incidence rates, almost 40% of Canadian women and almost 45% of men will develop cancer during their lifetimes" & "On the basis of current mortality rates, 24% of women and almost 29% of men, or approximately 1 out of every 4 Canadians, will die from cancer." My grandmother had cancer in the 90's, beat it and is still alive today. I can count quite a few family friends, old and young who have been diagnosed. Some have survived, and others have passed away. I think everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. This brings me to my next point. The Halifax Relay For Life is June 5th, from 7pm-7am. Has anyone ever participated in a Relay For Life before? I think Sarah Vic may have last year? If you have, what are your thoughts on the experience? I've never participated but am interested in doing so this year. If there's enough interest on here, I'd like to put in a team. Teams are 10 people, and you take turns walking, jogging, or running a track. You are expected to fundraise before the event, but I'm sure it will be very easy to get pledges. More info on the event can be found here: http://convio.cancer.ca/site/TR?type=fr_informational&pg=informational&fr_id=3510&sid=2630 If 9 other people commit, I'll register a team. So, who is ready to step up?
