Jelaine Harlow applauds decision to have RFL to the Square

Relay also about being smokefree: I want to invite anyone whose have given up using tobacco to join us in the "quitters lap" because you have reduced your risk of developing cancer. This is one time is great to be a quitter. - JELAINE HARLOW

By Jelaine Harlow

I think it is exciting that Relay for Life will be on the square this year and I want to personally thank all of those responsible for making this happen.


Money raised from Relay funds cancer research which has established the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer; created hormone therapy for prostate cancer; discovered breast cancer and colon cancer susceptibility gene; increased the cure rate for childhood leukemia to over 80%; and much, much more.

Relay is therapy for those of us who have lost loved ones to cancer. It is a way to fight.

I want to invite anyone whose have given up using tobacco to join us in the "quitters lap" because you have reduced your risk of developing cancer. This is one time is great to be a quitter. We also have a "kids fighting cancer" lap for any child attending relay.

It is important for kids to know early how they can reduce their risk of cancer by a healthy diet, exercise and choosing not to use tobacco. Join us Friday night at Relay for Life and make a difference! --Jelaine Harlow
