For All The Warriors

Hannah Jane Nancarrow

This month, I had the incredible honor of delivering the keynote speeches at two Relay for Life events. I’m new to Relay and, honestly, I was blown away. I was blown away by the commitment and passion, and by the awe-inspiring expressions of love.

I just thought I’d share one of my speeches with you. Whether you’re a survivor, a caregiver, or someone who has been touched by cancer in some way, this one is for you. This one is for all the warriors…


I have to admit, I don’t really feel worthy to stand up here and speak. I don’t feel worthy because I can’t tell you anything you don’t already know about cancer, loss or survivorship. In fact, most all of you know significantly more about surviving than I do. So instead I’ll tell you something that all of us know too well: cancer sucks.

But the way I see it each of us…

    Good for you Hannah! I was involved as a Media Sponsor for TV and Radio with ACS Relay for Life for many years in another state.

    Served as MC, handled live talent and station vehicle appearances and participation, PSA’s etc.

    It’s an amazing event. Almost had an opportunity to be more closely involved with it here in San Diego County… long story but things didn’t pan out.

    Perhaps in the future I’ll get involved again. Right on my friend!
