Stars of ABC-TV’s long running daytime drama General Hospital are joining cancer survivors, caregivers, other celebrities, friends, and families to kick off the third annual American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Hollywood.
“It is always a privilege to show up in any way for the American Cancer Society and their noble and tireless campaign to find the cure and prevention for all cancer,” says Nancy Lee Grahn. “I show up in the name of all those who have battled this disease and specifically for my friend Doreen Schmitt who continues to beat the odds every day. Please join my team and relay for life, hope and perfect health.”
“Cancer has affected many people in my life and I’m proud to participate in an event that promotes hope and strength,” adds Julie Marie Berman.
The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing, family-oriented community event that celebrates the lives of those who have battled cancer, remembers loved ones lost, and empowers individuals and communities to fight back against a disease that affects so many. In communities across the country, there are more than 4,000 Relay For Life events scheduled this year.
“The American Cancer Society will always be a deeply meaningful group to me and my family as my mother Bobbie is a cancer survivor not once but twice, having been successfully treated for both malignant melanoma and stage 2 breast cancer,” said Lisa LoCicero. “We’ve been so grateful for the many years of research and hard work on the part of the American Cancer Society that go in to every treatment protocol and touch every family’s diagnosis experience in some way. Unfortunately, very few families will remain untouched by this disease. We truly are all in this fight together, and I couldn’t be happier to be able to do my part!”
The event takes place on Saturday, July 30, at Helen Bernstein High School. Fans of General Hospital can join with cast members to help American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and celebrate a world with more birthdays by joining a “virtual” Relay For Life team!
