FRIDAY, UTAH (Good4Utah)-The number of cancer cases keep rising throughout America, and here in Utah, nearly 11-thousand Utahns will be diagnosed with the disease this year alone. You can help raise awareness and make a difference in the fight against cancer by joining Relay For Life. Relay For Life is the world's largest grassroots fundraising movement that mobilizes communities throughout the country to celebrate people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and provide participants with an opportunity to fight back against the disease. The funds raised at different Relay For Life events go to the American Cancer Society to help fund researchers with cutting-edge investigations and studies. In addition to funding research, Relay For Life also funds a number of free programs and services available to cancer patients and their families such as Patient Lodging, Patient Navigators, Road to Recovery and the Look Good Feel Better program.
