In 2009 our lives changed for ever when my husband Bill O'Reilly was diagnosed with lung cancer. I was 8 months pregnant with our second child. Rachael our daughter was 4. Bill battled this dreadful disease for 5 years. He passed away July 1, 2014 at the the young age of 44. He fought cancer with dignity and bravery and wanted so badly to win his fight. We relay to celebrate his memory and help him live on through our efforts.
Everyone on our team has their own reasons for participating in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life, but one thing unites us all: a belief that we can create a world where no one fears cancer.
We hope we can count on your support. Join our team and help us fundraise. Or make a donation to fund Canada’s most promising research, vital support services for patients and their families, and other important work that could change the future of cancer.
