Relay for Life: Meet cancer survivor Linda Reynolds

Signup for next year's Relay for Life begins next week

You never have to look far to find someone who has been impacted by cancer.

Linda Reynolds is one of those people.

She's a cancer survivor who was diagnosed 10 years after her husband died from the disease.

Linda called it a fight or flight moment. She chose to fight to make sure her children didn't lose another parent. It wasn't long afterward that she came across the Relay for Life. 

"The support that you receive from other survivors and the support you can give to those that are going through cancer is something you can't even describe because we're family now," Reynolds said.

You can be part of that family that supports each other with the same mission to find better treatment and cures to all forms of the disease. It's easy. The signup for next year's Relay for Life begins next week to start a team. That's Tuesday evening at 6 at the Los Agaves Mexican Grill on 16th Street in Moline near John Deere Road. 

Relay for Life: Meet cancer survivor Christine Aden

Over the next week, we're going to introduce you to a cancer survivor as part of Local 4 News' ongoing effort to support the Relay for Life.

Christine Aden was treated for uterine cancer six years ago and actually says she had it easy.

The disease has touched everyone in her immediate family. Christine found out about the Relay for Life from a colleague and the work being done by students at Augustana College. 

"I was blown away by the passion of these 700 students, marching, walking, relaying for life and that got me involved," Aden said.

You can get involved, too. It's easy. The signup for next year's Relay for Life actually begins next week to start a team and join the fight against cancer. That's Tuesday evening at 6 at the Los Agaves Mexican Grill on 16th Street in Moline near John Deere Road.
