“Wind Beneath My Wings”

Praising God for all who were the ‘wind beneath my wings’ while I went through breast cancer …. Thank You, Dear God, for being the TRUE ‘wind beneath my wings’

To begin the evening, all survivors make an imprint of their hand onto a large table cloth. They pen their name below the imprint.

The Relay for Life is an annual American Cancer fundraiser, in Festus, Missouri.
It has been a blessing to be invited throughout the past years to participate in song.

Luminary candles are always sold as part of the event. The candles are lit in honor of cancer survivors and in memory of those who have died from cancer. Thousands of luminaries line the track!

Below are pictures from various years of the local Relay for Life…..

Here I am with dear friend Linda Wilson… a very brave survivor, but then cancer returned and she was not able to defeat it that last time… HOWEVER, she was still a survivor because she loved the Lord & lives with Him in Heaven today!
