Relay for Life sponsors saluted

To the Editor:

The fight against cancer is being challenged. But it’s a fight that can’t be cancelled, postponed or rescheduled.

Covid-19 has put cancer patients at risk – attacking already weakened immune systems, delaying cancer treatments, and closing many clinical trials. Covid-19 hasn’t stopped cancer but it has affected the fight.

Our corporate sponsors joined the fight once again this year and supported Relay For Life so that we can continue programs like cancer screening, 24/7 navigation, and support, and research for treatment and cures – programs that are critical for cancer patients now and in the future. That is why they were needed more than ever to stand strong and get through this uncertain and unchartered time in our lives and our Bertie County Relay For Life corporate sponsors did….Safety First, Support Always, and Standing Together (even when we are apart)!
