this year the entire family joined the church relay for life team. we actually registered before my sister’s re-diagnosis, but after we found out the cancer had returned it made our involvement even more special. my sister had signed up to be on the planning committee. this years theme for the relay was “seasons.” our church decided on a christmas theme and holly suggested doing a tree much like the one we did for a family christmas this past year. congregation members who made a donation to the team received a hand print with their name on it placed on the tree. shortly after holly proposed her idea she received her diagnosis. the committee continued with her idea and named the tree “holly’s tree” in honor of her.
