Another way to remember those we’ve lost

The Ennis Daily News has made a campaign out of covering the growing story of this year’s Relay For Life of Ennis at the Texas Motorplex next weekend.
We’ve shown you the names and faces behind some of the Relay’s dedicated participants and survivors, sharing with you just how important the story of our ability to become involved in the landmark national CPS-3 cancer prevention study is to ongoing efforts to fight this deadly disease.

We want to extend a different kind of opportunity to you — one much more personal for many, and perhaps no less important than the news we’ve focused on in the months building up to this year’s Relay.

Through next week, we’re offering members of the public, be they bereaved love ones, family, friends or just acquaintances, the opportunity to put a memorial into the April 30 newspaper.

Our focus is not on making a profit off of other people’s grief — proceeds from this worthy benefit will go straight into the coffers of the American Cancer Society.

In our way, we want to show our staunch support for the efforts Relay embodies. Equally as important as the moves being made to learn more about and hopefully eradicate cancer in our lifetimes is the dedicated support structure that survivor organizations and patient care groups offer to each other and to those newly diagnosed with this disease. There are no words quite like “you have cancer,” and providing people who are left reeling by that diagnosis with outlets for their pain, frustration and need for support is key to their continued health.

While you’re thinking about what you’d like to do to prepare for this year’s Relay event next week, which promises to be a memorable one even by Ennis’ lofty standards, we encourage you to consider a memorial that will go into the record and benefit the fight against cancer. There’s really no downside that we can think of to putting your love into the form of a benefit ad in the Ennis Daily News.

Particularly with the pervasive readership in this town, it’s a public way to remember and show honor and love for those you’ve lost to this horrible disease.
