Relay for LIFE 2013

With a great amount of pain in her feet and atrophy in her legs, Kristi walked the Survivor and Caregiver laps again this year with fellow survivors and friends from her Caner Posse, Hope in Him Christian cancer ministry, plus her dedicated family. Although we weren't celebrating a miracle as we did when her surgery was canceled in 2012, we are celebrating a miracle that she is already joining into life just 4 1/2 months after surgery. To attend and walk this was one of Kristi's physical therapy goals and she did it! Thank you Chris for helping her reach this goal and so many more! It is amazing to think she was in a reclining wheelchair, using a walker, and being helped in and out of bed not long ago!

The event hosted 37 cancer survivors and about 200 participants for the overnight walka-thon. Relay for Life benefits the American Cancer Society.
