18 hours symbolizes cancer journey
Wednesday, June 05, 2013 2:17 PM

It was an 18-hour allegory of all that mixes into a cancer journey at this year’s Relay for Life event held at the Paulding County Fairgrounds this past weekend.

Sunshine, rain, storms, light, darkness, fluctuating emotions, a walking journey and personal support from those surrounding us all combined to represent an allegory of life for a cancer victim.

Jillene McMichael, member of the Relay Advisory Committee, gave a heartfelt comparison of the ingredients that make up a Relay event with the journey of cancer survivorship, noting that the 18 hours of a Relay event is symbolic of life of a cancer victim.
