Relay for Life

Yesterday in Lynden was the Relay for Life, an American Cancer Society event that celebrates and honors cancer survivors and current cancer patients.  We were unable to attend, however, I was sent some amazing pictures from the event.  Many of you who have been supporting and praying for Cash were there and Coleson Brink cut the ribbon to kick off the event.

This week Coleson received great news at Seattle Childrens - his cancer is in remission (the scans came back clear)!  We are thankful to God for answering prayers and continue to pray for the Brink's and celebrate with them - we hope maybe next year at this time Cash can cut the ribbon...

While I don't have a picture yet, Wendi's dad (my father-in-law), Bob VanderHoek and Mel Yonkman walked the track until midnight!  Bob and Mel walked to honor Aunt Alyce, who recently passed after a battle with cancer, and celebrate Cash and his progress to date.

Here are the rest of pics that were sent to me, I know Jen is sending me more and if anyone else has pictures please email them to me at, we would love to see them!

We are continually amazed at the support of our community in helping those who are fighting cancer and want to thank everyone who walked for Cash!  We'll see you next year, hopefully by that time (Lord willing), Cash can actually walk the track himself in the survivor lap.

Have a blessed Sabbath and we'll post some videos this week of Cash - we're thankful to God that he's doing well and we pray that the next three rounds of chemo will stop this tumor from growing!  Thank you for your continued prayers and support!


  1. Also very special thanks to my sister Karhi Jansen for organizing the Cash team! She set up tent provided snacks and walked tillall hours for the Cash team. She has a heart for Cash!

  2. Amazing! We can't wait to see more pics!!!

  3. Relay for Life has been very special to our family, since Tia Cathy (my wonderful sister), passed away. We've walked many, many laps here in Hanford!! And, since Uncle Manuel(my wonderful husband!) has been cancer free, now for 3 years!!!, many more laps have been and will continue to be walked!!! Adding now plenty of support for our wonderful nephew, CASH!!! We walk the Relay for Life in October!!!
    Love and prayers,
