The annual Saline Relay for Life event takes place May 2 at Henne Field in Saline. So far 25 teamss have raised nearly $30,000 for the American Cancer Society. We're asking participants why they relay. Please consider donating.

Today we profile Gretchen McCann

Name: Gretchen McCann

Who are you relaying for? Sharon Lynne Karen Elaine Jeff Robyn Gordon Dave Joyce Linda John C. Aunt Evelyn Uncle Red many many many more...too many more...

Reason why Gretchen is relaying:  The past few years has brought exceptionally bad new our way - many friends received the diagnosis of cancer and it was very painful to see the toll it took on their lives and their families. Many more of my dear friends have come through the ordeal with their health than those who lost their lives - for this statistic we can thank medical advancements in prevention and treatment made possible by organizations like the American Cancer Society. I became involved with this event 2 years ago - working on the Relay to spread awareness and raise funds seemed like the one course of action I could take to honor and respect my friends who strugge with cancer. The day of the event energy and good will is positively therapeutic for all who attend...
