Relay for Life Friendly Family Competition

Last April my grandmother found out she had cancer.  My girls and I packed up and headed to California at the end of May, intending to help my grandpa take care of my grandma and household tasks until she recovered.  Eight days after we arrived, she quietly passed away in the hospital.  This was not our first encounter with cancer, my husband's mother died of breast cancer when we were teens.  In honor of both of these wonderful ladies, our family is walking in the Relay for Life in June.  To make it fun, our family is having a contest amongst ourselves to see who can raise the most money.  The winner gets to choose dinners for a whole week AND not have to do chores for a whole week!  Please help us out by donating here.  This is our team page and the competition is among the Nourse sisters (and mom).  Better yet, please join our team and walk with us!

good luck with your walk. I lost my father to lung cancer in Sept 2007. 7 weeks was all he lived after his diagnosis. It's a horrible disease and I wish we never had to hear the word ever again.

Best of luck with your walk--a worthy cause which we support locally!
