Relay for Life is the signature activity of the American Cancer Society and celebrates cancer survivors and caregivers, remembers loved ones lost to the disease, and empowers individuals and communities to fight back against cancer; this year the Relay for Life of Shelby County celebrates a decade of fighting against cancer and we have raised over $800,000 dollars which supports the American Cancer Society's mission of saving lives and creating a world with less cancer. Relay for Life, while raising much needed money for cancer reseach, also continues to fight for lifesaving laws to increase the federal research funding, reduce tobacco use, raise the awareness of cancer prevention, early detection, treatment, and patient support. We here in Shelby County are fortunate to have dedicated and compassionate citizens who are willing to work and support the American Cancer Society in their fight; Therefore, be it resolved, that I, Allison, Harbison, County Judge of Shelby County, Texas recognize all the many volunteers and participants from area families, corporations, churches, and civic groups and does hereby proclaim May 13, 2016 as "The Eleventh Annual Relay for Life of Shelby County, Cancer Awareness Day."
