"For years I thought about it".

On Friday, Relay for Life Wausau kicked off at Marathon Park. "It doesn't matter if they were diagnosed 10 days ago or 10 years ago, we honour and celebrate their strength and courage with every step they take", says Farrow.

Ayla was inspired to do all of this in honour of her twin sister Arwen, who lost her battle with brain cancer at three years old. Local businesses who have gone out of their way to ensure our event is a huge success year after year.

With almost one in two Canadians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and a almost 35 per cent surge in cancer cases anticipated by 2030 due to our growing and aging population, now more than ever, we need your generous support.

"Relay is one of my passions because my mom is a cancer survivor since 1982", Hart said. "I went to Relay and carried on as if nothing was going on".

"If it wasn't for (the community), I don't think it would have been as easy for me", breast cancer survivor Jo Ellis said. After the ceremony, they will have a survivors lap where cancer survivors and caretakers will walk to celebrate them. Teams set up tents around the field selling items off to raise funds for ACS while one team member represented the group circling the track.

Admission is free as always for the event, the second hosted by the entity created by the combination of the Coventry Relay for Life and Warwick Relay for Life in January 2017. If you have never attended a Relay For Life event, I ask you to clear your calendar and be there at the luminary ceremony at 9 p.m. on June 22.

As is customary, the Survivors' Lap will be the first to go around the track.

"When we got the news, I realized this wasn't something I couldn't fix".

The 12-hour event will feature fun, food and friendship and is geared to people of all ages.

"(Survivors are) the reason why we plan this event", Zeller said. "By coming to Relay for Life, you are helping to raise money to find a cure for cancer".

Phoebe said Friday she planned to stay at the relay until it finished the next morning. "One thing I've learned is that you may not know the person you are walking next to on the track, but you share the same connection in some abstract way, and that's a attractive thing to share together".

"It's everything. The survivors - listening to their stories and their journeys".

In the following weeks and months, Braga decided that the best way to win a fight is to know the opponent so she began learning about what was happening in her body.
