Cancer is the general name for a group of more than 100 diseases in which cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all start because abnormal cells grow out of control. Untreated cancers can cause serious illness and even death.
Cancer can affect all even people with disabilities. People with disabilities already have so much crap to deal with, if cancer is added to that it makes it a 24/7 nightmare. Let us all stand together and work to end cancer. Let’s get people with disabilities into the community and being part of society!
I decided to start a team again this year for Relay For Life/American Cancer Society. Even though I have a disability, I still participate in community events like this and more. YOU CAN TOO!
Here is a great song/video done by Martina McBride

I have family and friends who have cancer or are survivors. That is one reason I participate in Relay For Life and started Team Rocker Walkers. I would love to get your participation and the participation of others with disabilities. Come out to Relay and show that even though you have a disability, we can participate in normal events and become productive members of!
I believe that everyone with a disability can do and should get out there in the world and Live Their Life.
Keep squeaking your wheels because one day you will be included and not looked down on!
