Relay For Life is here again! July 18 and 19 mark the seventh annual South Barry County Relay For Life event held at the Cassville high school track. We asked local community members participating in this event,

What motivates your involvement in Relay For Life?

I am a breast cancer survivor and my father-in-law recently passed away. I also have various family members and co-workers who have been affected by cancer. I really believe in it. Relay makes people aware and also helps raise money.

I lost my sister, Jan, to breast cancer at age 51. I also support Janalyn's Fans, in honor of Janalyn Brewer, who has battled brain cancer and received many treatments in Kansas City. She is now three years old and cancer-free. Jan Brattin, one of our team members, is also a survivor.

I have been participating for the past four years. It is good for the community and it's a lot of fun.
