Stepping off to fight cancer



The Sheboygan County Relay for Life marked its 21st year, as cancer survivors united to celebrate life and remember those who lost the fight at Zell Field in Sheboygan Falls Friday, July 15. Relay for Life emcee Katrina Steinke thanked all of the sponsors and planning committee members, stating that the event couldn’t happen without all of them. American Cancer Society Chairman Christine Hazel took the opportunity to thank all of the cancer survivors and sponsors for all of the fundraising for the event. “Making a difference counts,” said Hazel. “All the funds go to cancer research.” Julia Grandlik delivered a message to cancer survivors to believe in looking good and having a better outlook on cancer. Grandlik is a chair of the “Feel Better Program,” which helps cancer survivors connect with other cancer survivors. Cancer survivor Carrie Green (left), who led cancer survivors on a celebratory lap to open the event, spoke about her battle with brain cancer with the crowd of survivors in attendance. Green is an 11-year cancer survivor and found that brain cancer gave her a different outlook on life. “During my recovery, I wanted to start living my life more fully,” said Green. “I believe cancer is an opportunity to be more thankful of your life. Don’t just stop living. Look to the future by setting goals.” Green said it was a blessing to be among all of the cancer survivors and expressed her gratitude to all of the people she has met during her journey. Green is a Livestrong exercise manager at the YMCA and enjoys teaching the importance of exercise wellness. Steinke ended the opening ceremony by honoring the cancer support teams and volunteers that have made the Relay for Life possible each year.
