One of the worst effects of cancer is a feeling of hopelessness. The feeling that it is just up to the doctors, that it might come back or if you have lost someone, that it is over and there is nothing you can do.
The communities of Deerfield Beach, Lighthouse Point, and Hillsboro Beach, came together at Quiet Waters Park on the night of Saturday, May 5th to help the American Cancer Society in the fight against cancer. This 11th year for their Relay For Life included survivors, caregivers, community leaders and the general public. It was a night of music, food, and celebration. It was a night of tenacious survivor stories and solemn remembering at the Luminaria Ceremony. It was a night when all walked as one community and raised money for the fight against cancer.
Relay For Life was a night of HOPE and communities coming together to Celebrate,Remember, Fight Back.
