Relay For Life 2012

By Debbie Fleury

The American Cancer Society is partnering with the Rockaway community for the 12th annual fight against cancer. Monthly information hearings will be held at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 333 Beach 90 Street, on the second floor, and all are welcome to attend. The dates of the meetings are: Monday, May 7, Thursday, June 14 and Thursday, June 21.

Cancer survivors are honored guests at the relay, and the event is going to be a celebration of life for those affected by the disease and of the medical advances that are being made to help find a cure. The ACS has a goal to fulfill. And that is to help unite cancer survivors within their communities and create an environment where every birthday is considered a milestone.

The ACS is always welcoming newcomers and volunteers. Those who wish to sign up and register their team for the event are encouraged to contact ACS staff partner Cathleen Garry at 718-261-1092 (extension 5515) or by email at: cathleen.garry@cancer.org.
