I relay for my family. I relay in memory of my great grandfather who succumbed to brain cancer, great grandmother-ovarian cancer, paternal grandmother-lung cancer and for my aunt, who for six years has been courageously battling breast cancer.
In April 2008, my aunt, Janet Neau, was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. Her prognosis then was HOPE. The combination of chemotherapy and radiation treatments that followed took their toll on her already oppressed immune system and as a result she developed bacterial pneumonia. With new medications and an incredible tenacity, she survived the pneumonia and continues today to inspire and amaze us all. To date, her most recent PET scan reveals the cancer to be aggressive and metastatic. Her six year struggle has been arduous yet she has defied every odd proving hope does prevail.
I relay in support of my wonderful family and for all who have been affected by this disease. I relay in CELEBRATION of my incredible aunt, Janet Neau. I relay for LIFE.
