Second annual Mom Prom June 4

To the editor:

Cancer is a six-letter word. That’s a fact. How our lives are affected by this disease leads to many words. Surprise, confusion, pain, loss, surgery, treatment, survivor, love, hate, support.

The Relay for Life of Jefferson County held their Relay May 3, on the square here in Fairfield. Donations, an auction, luminaria “sales,” Relay items sales, helped this group raise funds for the American Cancer Society.

June 4 is the second annual Mom Prom. The Cowgirls Relay team has planned “A Chance to Dance” for all women. Dress in prom attire or jeans and boots, the music will get your toes tapping and your feet on the dance floor.

Posters and tickets at Adela’s, Brown Shoe, the Full Effect Salon, or Frontline Printing. Information 469-6023. Hope to see you there, in another step toward cures for cancer. From a three-time cancer survivor and Cowgirl team captain.
