Relay for Life-Lake County
Xtreme Weed & Pest Solutions had the opportunity to have a team in the Lake County Relay for Life this year and what an honor it was for us. The committee elected to have a carnival this year and the turnout was amazing. Our carnival game was called "Bug Smash" and the kids loved it. I was able to attend the Survivor/Caregiver dinner as a caregiver to my dear friend and what a joy that was. Not only did we get to celebrate the survivors but I got to sit with some amazing people that mean the world to me.
I'm very proud of our team and the commitment they had to this event. Thanks to you all.
Below is our introduction speech for our team.
The Xtreme Weed & Pest team is participating in the relay for life for our dear friends, family and clients who have been affected by cancer.
I was in the doctors office with my best friend when the doctor told him he had cancer. The whirlwind of emotions was devastating to say the least. I was blessed with the opportunity to help my dear friend through the long and painful process of the diagnosis, chemo and all the major stuff in between. Thank God he survived and is with us here tonight.
WE ARE SUPPORTING THE FIGHTERS, ADMIRING THE SURIVIVORS, HONORING THE TAKEN AND NEVER, EVER GIVING UP HOPE.
‘What Cancer Cannot Do”
Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love
It cannot shatter hope
It cannot corrode faith
It cannot destroy peace
It cannot kill friendship
It cannot suppress memories
It cannot silence courage
It cannot invade the soul
It cannot steal eternal life
It cannot conquer the spirt
If you have never been to a Relay for Life event, I highly recommend that you attend. Amazing is all I can say!!!
