Martin & Helms is a sponsor of the 2011 Relay For Life in Marshall County. The Relay For Life is truly a special event because it celebrates cancer survivors. This year, more people than ever will survive cancer and fewer will hear the words “you have cancer.” Although we have made tremendous strides, in Alabama alone more than 24,090 people are expected to be stricken with the disease this year and 9,900 people will die. Cancer is a disease that affects almost every person, in every community, in some way. But for those who are suffering right now and for those who may be diagnosed in the future, there is more hope now than ever before.
