Message From Marli - Ovarian Cancer

Relay For Life of Miami Springs and Virginia

Tuesday evening, March 22, 2011

After an all day St. Patrick's Day Chemo treatment at UMH on Thursday, Marlene went to work on Friday until 5:30 p.m. She came home and changed into fresh clothing and rushed over to the RELAY FOR LIFE EVENT in Miami Springs. As the female honorary survivor, she spoke to the crowd at 6:30 p.m. as part of the opening ceremonies. She then walked and participated in the event all night until 1:00 p.m. the next day!! She spoke to close the ceremonies as well. "The Wolff Pack Team," captained by MFM Advisory Board Member Emily Messina (Marli's Sister from Philadelphia), raised $2,500.00 for the American Cancer Society. Emily, who received her doctorate from Temple University, also volunteers at Carpenters Hall in Philadelphia and was able to get goodies donated from them, which were sold along with Philadelphia pretzels. MFM info cards were also handed out at the event to further raise awareness. Melanie, Mason, Mia, Daniel Messina (Emily's Husband) and Mr. and Mrs. Bruener (Marli's partents) participated and slept in tents as a Wolff Pack team member always stayed on the walking track. The entire Miami Springs/Virginia Gardens chapter of the national event raised over $70,000.00 for the American Cancer Society!!

Wolff Pack Team Captain Emily Messina getting everyone psyched for the walk!
