Overnight Relay for Life aims to raise $80K locally for cancer fight

Piper Courtney Mac Pherson leads the Survivors Victory Lap around Centre 200 on Friday night at Sydney’s 16th annual Relay For Life

This day is to honor everyone that has been touched by cancer in different ways and a way to pay tribute to the ones that lost the battle.

"It's a time, in this hectic and chaotic world, that time seems to stand still", he said "It's a time to remember and reflect on those who have cancer and those who we've lost to cancer". During the survivor lap, cancer survivors and people now affected by the disease walk the track to be cheered and supported by friends, family and caregivers. She had won the battle against cancer.

From the moment of diagnosis, an individual is considered to be a cancer survivor, so anyone from those recently diagnosed to those whose cancer experience is years or decades past is invited. In fall 2015, she was having some stomach issues and began losing weight. "It was amazing. Amazing", she said.

"When the ones you love are diagnosed with or die from cancer, friends and family often want to do something to help or remember them".

"We each have our own reasons for being here," said McMurter.

"I think my first feeling was that I couldn't believe it", Braga said.

Upon hearing that Hart was waiting for insurance approval, the doctor called the insurance company herself and moved along the process.

"At Relay for Life we raise money for cancer research for all types of cancer", said McMurter. Teams must have one participant on the track at all times.

"My family and friends are my best supporters", she said. We started relaying for her when I was seven and have done it ever since.

Money raised from relay events across the country is used by the American Cancer Society to fund cancer research, as well as promoting awareness and assisting cancer patients in making arduous trips to cancer centers.

Nabil Fekir's move to Liverpool appears to be off... for now
Nothing has yet emerged about how Fekir feels about his move to Liverpool being cancelled, but you can imagine he's not happy. Liverpool was hoping to add Fekir to their off-season signings of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig's Naby Keita.


On April 14, Hart had the colonoscopy and was told she had a two-inch mass on her rectum and it needed to come out. A CT scan also showed spots in her lungs.

Ms Broomer said she keeps coming back because participation makes her feel she is a part of something "bigger than ourselves".

The evening will include music, a door prize, food and more.

Things were looking brighter for Hart. As she did this she would also imagine herself killing the cancer. She began her next round of chemotherapy that May. "And just kind of turned into the greatest movement the American Cancer Society does", said Laurie Odden, American Cancer Society sr. community manager. I'm not the same person I was before this, and I never will be.
