Memorial Gardens at ACS Island

Memorial GardensPanza and Bain would like to share with you why this solemn, special place was chosen as the site of their wedding.

This is a place of memories, of love remembered and celebrated.

This place lives because of and for those that came before us all.

These are the memorials of mothers, fathers, daughters, sons and friends of people who have been touched by cancer, a cause which brought Panza and Bain together.

They come here to honor the memories of those lost as they begin their life together, and celebrate the many lives lived and being lived today because of advances in cancer research and treatment.

This tree before you is a representation of the coming together of people, made stronger by their unity, their commonality, their mutual strength that spreads past the bounds of this virtual world.

The two trunks, which sprouted as individuals, are now joined, growing stronger together, giving shelter to all who come here and showing that through many, strength only grows. That through celebrating life, through remembering those we have lost, we continue to fight back with the spread of love mimicked in the spread of the branches over us.

We gather here today, with a foot in the past and another in the future, while our hearts and minds are firmly rooted like this tree … in the present, to share in Panza and Bain’s happiness. We do this with  the spirits of our lost friends, who I know are smiling down upon us all.

This is a celebration of life both present and eternal.

What is advocacy?

The dictionary definition of advocacy is “the act of pleading for, supporting, or recommending; active espousal” and espousal is defined as “adoption or advocacy, as of a cause or principle.”

In Relay, advocacy is the cornerstones of all our activities. We as Relayers, we primarily fundraise to generate the funds, that fuels the search for the cure against cancer. As participant in one of the largest group of volunteers in the world, we support cancer survivors and caregivers, either through our efforts and those in our ranks as team members.

We help promote the efforts of the global fight of the cancer society in 23 countries and two virtual worlds with education about health, treatment options, cancer facts and more, through our event promotions. And in so going, are the engine of advocacy against this foe.

This is the heart of this Relay For Life of Second Life team RFL ADvocacy and this blog of ADvocacy Exchange.

Every since I became involved with Relay, I discovered the power of advocacy and that it, is our strongest weapon. Through advocacy we teach. Through advocacy we promote. Through advocacy we fly the banner, that is Relay For Life. With advocacy, we create new Relay fighters.

As a team, we will do what Relay people do, fundraise and we fight for for that one wish, More Birthdays.

Our weapon of choice is our voice of advocacy.
