I would like to purchase a luminaria at our local ACS Relay for Life in May and am needing your last name. If you would please e-mail it to me, I would appreciate it.

Hi! Sure thing -- although I haven't the slightest idea what a luminaria is! :dunno: I'll email you right now. Whatever you're doing, it sounds like it's a good and very nice thing, so thanks in advance! :lol:

A luminaria is a paper bag with a light in it, and the name of a cancer patient or cancer survivor, or of someone we have lost to cancer. (My Grammy, my Aunt Rose, my Uncle Peter, etc). They put them around the track where they have the Relay.

At 10PM they light up the bags one by one & read your personal message you have written for the person you are honoring or memorializing.

If you've never seen it, it's really moving, something to see.

Former ACS employee. I worked there 4 1/2 years, and just thought of something.

We could probably purchase them online & have them read at whichever Relay Sarah want to attend? Then she could see how cared for she is. I know we're not supposed to post links, but let me know & I could look into it.

That sounds so beautiful!
The best thing about this forum is how thoughtful you all are :grouphug:

Oh my God. Wow. I don't really know what to say. Imagine that -- ME at a loss for words. I can only say thank you. Really, thank you.
