I am very glad that I decided to join the "Blue Devil Angels" at the Cass County Relay for Life. This was mine and my daughters first Relay.  I didn't really know what to expect.  The day started out very stormy, (not to mention I woke up to a flat tire.)  I thought, oh no, I hope it stops raining.

Thankfully, the weather cleared (and my tire was fixed) and it was time to pack up the van, my daughter, and head down to the Plattsmouth High School Football Field.   

I found where I needed to go, unpacked our chairs, and ate some pulled pork sandwiches (YUM).  After that we decided to take a trip around the track to check out some of the booths.

Emmalynn saw a face painting booth, so of course we had to stop to get her all decked out.

We then made our way over to the start of the track for the survivor's lap.  Listening to the women speak, and seeing all of the people that this horrible disease effected brought tears to my eyes.  In the past year and a half I lost my Pap and Gram to Lung Cancer.  To see what cancer did to them came rushing back to me.  This is a disease that we desperatly need to find a cure for.

Cancer doesn't care if you are black or white, yellow or red.  It doesn't care if you are a male or a female, young or old.  Cancer effects our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, aunts, and uncles.  You could tell that these people were NOT letting it rule their life.  And they were ready to fight back!    

Even Elvis showed up to help us kick out Cancer!

My daughter kept us walking around that track!  We would rest for but a minute, and she would say, "Come on Mommy, I walk around the track!"  And off we were again! 

They had so many activities, it kept the kids busy and having fun!

You can't forget about the Luminarias!

The ceremony was beautiful.  They read the names of people that cancer has touched, and their names were also shown on a screen. There was also someone that played the bagpipes.  It tugged at your heart.

Please take a moment, and say a prayer for anyone whose lives have been touched by cancer.  Those whom have fought it and won, those whom are still fighting!  I pray one day we find a cure!
