Relaying for Talia April 21, 2009Posted by Amanda Kern in Uncategorized.
This past Friday I participated in Relay for Life at Timber Creek High School in support of Talia and others whose lives have been affected by cancer. The night was filled with many reflections as I stayed up through the night walking about 15 miles in support of those like Talia who have battled cancer. I admit that it’s been very reassuring to see Talia rebounding and recovering from cancer, however, I certainly can’t forget the struggles I’ve seen and heard she’s endured just in the short time I’ve known her. Over the last few months I have come to admire her spirit and resilience in spite of the challenges she’s faced during her battle with cancer. Attending Relay for Life has helped me remain reassured that there is hope that Talia will beat her fight with neuroblastoma.
Stay strong Talia!
