JOIN RACHEL ROSENZWEIG IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER

On June 9, I will be participating in my 6th American Cancer Society's Relay For Life because I want to continue doing my part in making a meaningful difference in the fight against cancer. Both for my own personal fight, along with the fight that so many others have made and continue to make today.

As we all know, almost everyone has been touched by cancer, either through their own personal battle or through someone they love. With your help thru donating to the Relay, we'll be able to find a cure to these dreaded diseases!

Please click here to join me and make a donation to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Together, we can help make sure that cancer never steals another year of anyone's life!
