Learning the Cancer Journey

EUGENE, Ore. — Relay for Life raises awareness and money for cancer treatment and research, but the event is also an opportunity to learn about the journey and struggle of cancer victims and survivors.

The Willamette Valley Cancer Institute set up several stations with games for people to play so they could get a better understanding of the battle those diagnosed with cancer face.

“The American Cancer Society is not only involved in research, but in education and advocacy too. And when you know more about your body and your health, you can make better informed decisions,” said Josh Kermisch, WVCI Executive Director.

People could earn “believe bucks” during the games and spend them on various prizes.
