Cancer survivors are the inspiration to continue to fight back against cancer — that's why one of the most important parts of the American Cancer Society Relay For Life event is the survivors lap. As cancer survivors lead the way around the track, teams cheer them on, celebrate their individual victories, and take pride in the amazing progress everyone is making in the fight against cancer.

Thanks to the amazing accomplishments of Relay For Life, nearly 14 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday this year.

Join Relay for Life of West Haywood this year for what is sure to be an unforgettable event dedicated to honoring those who have lost the battle and celebrating those who have won.
