Join Us in the Fight Against Cancer! Huntsville Cancer support walk 2018 Relay for Life Cancer Support meets 5-19-18 at 4:00 at 100 North Side Square.
Relay for Life is an annual event celebrated not just in Huntsville, AL but in cities around the world. What began as one man’s quest to make a difference has grown to the largest fundraising event for cancer in the world.
Dr. Gordy Klatt, a colorectal surgeon from Tacoma, Washington, wanted to help raise funds for his local American Cancer Society. He decided he would raise money by doing something he enjoyed—running. In May 1985, Dr. Klatt circled a track for 24 hours and ran more than 83 miles. He raised $27,000. Inspired by his success, Dr. Gordy worked to develop Relay for Life into a spark that lit the world on fire. Today, Relay for Life is structured around teams. Anyone can form a team and teams can be as large as one or 100+.
What inspires Therapy Achievements is our patients. We are touched by their grace, generosity, tenacity and bravery. Join our team in the fight against cancer! We are selling Raffle tickets for a basket of gift cards valued at over $100. Tickets are $2.00 and are available at both of our clinics – 802 Shoney Drive and Clearview Cancer Institute.
We hope to see you at the Huntsville Cancer Support Walk 2018 Relay for Life! You can make the difference.

Knowing as much as you can about cancer, how to manage it and what to expect has an empowering effect. Knowledge can help maximize therapeutic outcomes by promoting adherence to treatment and enhance your quality of life. In addition to attending the SPOHNC Support Group, The SPOHNC organization offers an extensive variety of programs, services, resources and connection opportunities for people living with and affected by cancer, including family members, caregivers and other members of their support systems.
One of the biggest advantages of support groups is helping a person realize that he or she is not alone — that there are other people who have the same problems. Being in a support group can also help you develop new skills to relate to others. In addition, the members of the group who have the same problems can support each other and may suggest new ways of dealing with a particular problem.
