The American Cancer Society has hired Kristen Camden to serve as the support staff for Relay For Life of Bradley County.

Camden will support the volunteer leaders in the communities of Bradley and Hamilton counties as they plan and execute their local events.

Camden has a heart for those battling cancer. In her previous role in radio promotions and community affairs she helped coordinate publicity for events such as such as the T.C. Thompson Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon, Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure and PINK.

She also has a personal passion for defeating the disease.

“I watched my grandpa suffer with colon cancer and eventually lose the battle. Being part of the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life is a gift; I not only get to honor my Grandpa’s memory daily, through my work, but I also get to honor every survivor who is battling cancer,” said Camden.

Camden encourages everyone who has been touched by cancer to join her in making the 2014 event a success.

“Relay For Life is all about our community uniting with the American Cancer Society and supporting its efforts to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays,” said Camden.

“Volunteers and participants who are willing to give their time and energy to this exciting event are making a commitment to let Bradley County community members know that cancer can be defeated.”

If you would like to join the Relay For Life of Bradley County as a volunteer or team participant, call the American Cancer Society at 423-499-2606, or attend the upcoming team meeting on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Cleveland Utilities Training Center.

The American Cancer Society saves lives and creates more birthdays by helping people stay well, by helping people get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.
