It was quiet enough to hear a pin drop on grass while Karen Lewandowski gave her talk about how she fights her cancer on a daily basis while attending Hillsborough Community College. “In May I will graduate with honors,” she told high school students. “If I can do this, so can you.”

Lewandowski returned to school in her fifties to earn a liberal arts degree and has been undergoing chemotherapy.  This year the annual relay was a double celebration as it is the American Cancer Society’s 100th birthday.

More than 600 participants signed up to help raise the society’s goal of $103,000 at the event held April 6-7 at East Bay High School’s football field.
