Colleges Against Cancer Event

Tonight, I attended the Colleges against Cancer event at the University of Minnesota. It was awesome. The organizer, Megan, did an incredible job of putting together a very fun event. The music was absolutely incredible. It began A cappella and spun off into spoken words poetry with a very intense musical finish. All the artists were absolutely incredible and inspiring.

The art and fun did not take away from the seriousness of the evening. It is estimated there will be 219,440 new cases of lung cancer. There will be 159,390 cases of death. More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer.

At the University of Minnesota they are already signing students up for the relay for life event. Students that register by Sunday midnight pay only $5 for the relay for life event.
