American Cancer Society also helps fund the Bob Perks Foundation.

Betler said she is doing well now, continuing to take medication to try to prevent her cancer from returning, preparing for what will be her 30th operation and raising money to support the organization that supported her. Their last trip for treatment cost about $6,000.

"Cancer has touched all of our lives in one way or another, whether it has taken someone we love from us or we have been blessed to have someone stay here a little longer", Craft said. "It's pretty powerful when you see everybody together on that line to start off the survivor walk", event leadership committee member Stacey Betler said Tuesday.

This year's local goal is $35,000. As of eight days before Relay, the amount raised was $52,277.

Amanda Goodpasture, chairwoman of Garfield County Relay For Life 2018, along with her co-chair, Amanda Mojica, first participated in Relay for Life when they were growing up in their respective hometowns of Whitehouse, Texas, and Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. "We always did events at each school, but this is a districtwide event that gets everybody involved and it's the biggest we have done in recent memory".

Mark your calendars and plan to attend the American Cancer Society Relay For Life of Audubon County, which will take place on Friday, June 8 at the Exira City Park.

"People should come out to this event, because there will be something for everyone at the event and it is helping a great cause as well", said volunteer Paula Casstevens. "We are encouraging all our students to walk a lap if they want".

It is important to note that the time for Relay this year has changed.
