Why I Relay

“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” ― John Joseph Powell, The Secret of Staying in Love

This day was so rich in legacy and love, I dare to voice my words less they taint the sacredness of this union. And yet you know, I will say what I must.

team spirit

We do what we do in the spirit of love.

community spirit

We walk in the spirit of community.

cousins for a cure

We walk with friends and family.

As we have both lost our fathers to cancer, we will continue to fight the beast because


as the saying goes, hope floats…


and sometimes it soars.


We will never forget

  1. Beautiful post, Suzi! You can really feel the sacredness and spirit in your words.

    “We walk in the spirit of community.”

    Loved that!

    Great shot of you, your Mom, and sisters!


  2. GOOD for both of you, doing what you can, hanging onto the hope that others won’t be touched by that dreaded disease. Beautiful and emotional!
