"We are fighting to save all lives, whether they live three doors down, three miles down the road or three thousand miles away", Allen said. Dollars raised by 1.3 million Relay participants across the country help the American Cancer Society attack cancer in dozens of ways - from developing breakthrough therapies to building supportive communities, from providing empowering resources to deploying activists to raise awareness.

"I am just so thankful to have a wonderful family and so many friends that I can lean on", Hart said.

Lockett said having the support of her friends and family has helped her keep going, as well.

Angela Frederick, a mother of a member of McDonald's Team Cancer Busters, said the group is comprised of McDonald students who heard about Relay For Life and wanted to do something to help. She had won the battle against cancer. All the proceeds from fundraising monies go straight to the American Cancer Society to help those battling the disease.

"We were so excited to see familiar faces and all of our new teams", said event lead, Joyce McAloon.

"It's everything. The survivors - listening to their stories and their journeys". It's like everybody is a family here, you know.

In the following weeks and months, Braga decided that the best way to win a fight is to know the opponent so she began learning about what was happening in her body.
