Relay for Life with @jeff_emt

The American Cancer Society has been able through, advocacy, research, education and service to prevent cancer and ensure that over 14 million cancer survivors get to celebrate a birthday this year. ACS supports over 900 local offices and it takes a lot of money to make their work a reality. The Relay for Life is an overnight event taking place all over the country to help them raise money for this event.

Our twitter friend Jeff is trying to raise $911 dollars for his team as they participate in the Lake Buena Vista relay on April 20th. He and the Reedy Creek Fire Department have pulled together to raise a whopping $1,425 towards a $2,500 goal. As of the time that I looked at his page they were only thirteen percent of the way to their goal. All of us can give something to help him get there!

Every one of us knows someone that is battling cancer. Too many of us have lost loved ones to some form of cancer. The battle of cancer research and treatment has been waged for many years and every day a cure seems just one step closer and just a little too far out of grasp. And for many research centers and labs out there the one thing that keeps them from getting life saving techniques out of the labs and to the patients is money. 

These people are already life savers in what they do for their community. Let's help them save even more lives and team up to end cancer for good! 

If you want to you can tweet at Jeff here at @jeff_emt and tell him that you're cheering him on! And I know that you want to go to his relay page here and give what you can to help him reach his goal. Every little bit helps!
