Cancer touches everyone. We are a nationwide company and everyone can participate in Relay for Life.

Two sisters living across the country from one another will participate in Friday’s Relay For Life, one in Clearwater, Florida the other in Oxford, Mississippi.    

Elizabeth Barron and Kate Barron Rosson will be raising monies for the American Cancer Society this Friday, May 4th at the same time but 800 miles apart. The sisters decided to take the fight back against cancer after they lost their father two years ago to throat cancer at age 60.

Rosson, whose involvement with the American Cancer Society is not just a volunteer, but also an employee. Rosson serves as the Internal Communications and New Media Specialist with the American Cancer Society Mid-South Division, Inc.

“After I lost my dad, I didn’t realize there was an avenue for me to fight back against cancer,” says Rosson. “What started as a job in 2010 has led to much more for me. I have the opportunity to help my family and friends hopefully never heard those words ‘You have cancer.’”

Elizabeth Barron will be walking with coworkers from MDT Personnel. “Cancer touches everyone. We are a nationwide company and everyone can participate in Relay For Life. It is great to see how enthusiastic my co-workers are about participating in this event.”

Team MDT Personnel will be participating in Friday night’s Relay For Life event in Clearwater, FL. It will begin at 4:00pm at Coachman Park. For more information on this event please visit relayforlife.org/clearwaterfl.
