Supporting a Classmate and Friend Relay for Life: April 14, 2012

Date: April 14, 2012
Time: 6:00 pm – 6:00 am
Location: Carrier Dome

Recently, dietetics senior Victoria ‘Tori’ Li was diagnosed with a high-grade sarcoma, which is a soft tissue malignancy, and has started treatments. Tori is a very good student in the Falk College and a wonderful citizen of the programs in nutrition science and dietetics. She has served for two years as the nutrition student liaison with the Mary Ann Shaw Center for Public/Community service.

With the SU Relay for Life coming up at the Carrier Dome on April 14th, a group of Tori’s friends, under the leadership of junior nutrition science and dietetics student Marissa Donovan, and Whitman student Eddie Zaremba, have started a relay team in her honor. Any questions regarding the group can be sent to team captains: Eddie Zaremba and Marissa Donovan.

A Letter from Marissa Donovan:

Hello everyone,

I am sure many of you have heard that our friend and classmate, Victoria Li, was recently diagnosed with cancer. Victoria is a close friend of many of you, including myself, and right now she needs support from all of us. For this reason, a team has been created in her honor, Team Tor, for Relay For Life at the Carrier Dome this year. Relay for Life takes place from 6PM to 6AM on Saturday April 14th. Please consider joining the team and/or making a donation to the American Cancer Society on behalf of our friend Tori.

At the event, our team will camp out overnight and take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society. We invite any of you to stop by for any amount of time and show your support, it is not necessary to stay for the entire time.

Please see the link above to make a donation, join the team, or spread the word. I think this event is an amazing way for us to all ban together and show Tori our support for her as well as our support towards the fight against cancer.

Victoria Li is an amazing individual who has shown her selfless actions time and time again. Please consider joining this team to show your support, and spread the word.

Thank you all.

Marissa Donovan
