What a wonderful weekend was had by many people at the Bundaberg relay for life. It was a day I will definitely remember for a long time.
I was surprised at how emotional the whole event made me- I found myself crying as I walked the survivor and carer lap with Dan. It was like a smack in the face to acknowledge that I have cancer, am currently fighting cancer and was being cheered on by a bunch of strangers. Also the candle lighting ceremony was again another very moving event..
I was proud of my walking efforts and seems all the walking paid off for preparing my lung/body for the all the walking. Thanks to Dan for encouraging me to not give up and to keep walking at my pace.
It was great to raise $945 to go to a wonderful cause and to support the cancer council for all their wonderful work.!!!I know for sure I will be definitely participating in the relay for life in 2013.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
