Unfortunately, many people understand the challenges and fear that accompany a cancer diagnosis. Whether someone has lost a loved one to cancer, has battled cancer, or has seen the devastating effects of cancer within their community, the word “cancer” summons up many emotions.
This year Relay for Life of Rutherford and Clifton Team is working with the American Cancer Society to help save lives. The American Cancer Society works to promote healthy lifestyles to prevent cancer, research cancer, fight for life-saving policy changes, and provide support for patients and their families.
