Cancer kills every day but the American Cancer Society brings hope to those affected by the disease by offering healing, comfort and support. This Saturday is the kick-off for the Missoula Cancer Relay For Life which will take place in June at Big Sky High School. The relay gives everyone involved a chance to meet others in the community that has been touched by cancer. The American Cancer Society wants everyone who participates to know that with every step you take during the relay you are helping to save lives.
