Relay for Life…Why she is helping and how you can too.

A letter from Dawn, in her own words:

My Reason to Relay

I am participating in the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life
because I want to make a meaningful difference in the fight against
cancer.  I have family, colleagues, former classmates, and friends
affected by cancer, with some winning and some losing this fight.   My
Team may just have one person listed, but it is also the heart and
souls of Valent field staff, my colleagues, friends and family~ as our
field of dreams should be endless!

We are making a difference by teaming up to participate in the
American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life.  Saving lives from cancer
starts one team, one participant, and one dollar at a time.  It also
starts with one hope, just believing that there are cures to be found.


Valent USA has a home office in Walnut Creek, California, and has been
making quilts to raffle off as a fundraiser for Relay for Life.
This past year, one of our Valent Team quilters, Nancy Engman, lost
her battle to melanoma skin cancer, but we are continuing on with the
quilts.   My colleagues in California made a quilt called “All Around
the Neighborhood.”  I made some of the flowers in the quilt and I
decided to donate a quilt that I had designed and the MSQC quilted to
the cause!    See it at Missouri Star Quilt Company:

By joining or donating to our team, you will be a part of a
life-changing event that gives everyone in the community a chance to
celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved
ones lost, and fight back against a disease that takes too much. And
as a special bonus, every $10 in donation is a raffle ticket towards
winning one of these quilts!

Please support our efforts to fight cancer by making a donation. The
impact we can make together is much greater than what any of us could
do alone!
