Greenwich is committed to fight cancer

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

On behalf of the American Cancer Society, I would like to extend my appreciation to the volunteer committee as well as all who attended and supported the Relay for Life in Greenwich.

More than 500 people participated, raising more than $125,000 for the American Cancer Society’s research, education, advocacy, and service programs. The outstanding support received proves that the Greenwich community is truly committed to the fight against cancer.

I want to applaud the 38 cancer survivors who participated in the opening lap and reception in their honor. They are the reason we continue the fight, because each year there can be more and more people living wonderful lives after a cancer diagnosis.

A special thanks to the many Relay for Life volunteers who worked to make this event a success. Special thanks to Greenwich’s committee and co-chairs Stephanie Hicka and Sarah Stempien for making this event an amazing one!

Again, thank you for supporting the American Cancer Society, and remember it’s not too late to become involved with the American Cancer Society. There are many opportunities to volunteer your time helping patients and implementing programs here in Connecticut.
