We are very pleased to announce the winning entry in the 2017 Relay For Life of Second Life Logo Contest
Here is the winning design
Your Official 2017 Passport To Hope Logo ……
The winning logo was submitted by.Lizzy Gracemount. Lizzy put tremendous creativity, thought, and passion into her design. She explained that each color is taken from “…the Official ACS Color Palette. Every color has a special meaning from courage to peace to love and harmony and above all for cancer research. I chose the colors to fit this aspect of RFL and why we relay every year. The passport stamps are from a public domain vector stock, colored to reflect the various aspects of RFL OF SL. Every aspect of the piece reflects the journey every survivor or cancer patient has traveled during their journey.”
Lizzy selected all her colors from the Official ACS Color Palette and included the symbolic meaning of each color.
Dark Green: Balance, Harmony
Lime Green: Energy and Healing
Gold: Knowledge, Learning, Meditation, Strength
Cocoa: Stability, Structure, Support
Burgundy: Warrior, Honorable
Red: Courage, Energy, Longing
Blue: Peace, Tranquility
Wisteria: Spirituality, Faith, Calming, Inspiration
Purple: Bravery, Courage
The Official 2017 Passport To Hope Logo will be available in the coming new year in various sizes.
Thank You and Congratulations Lizzy!
Every year, on the third Thursday of November, smokers across the nation take part in the American Cancer Society Great American Smokeout event. Encourage someone you know to use the date to make a plan to quit, or plan in advance and then quit smoking that day. By quitting – even for 1 day – smokers will be taking an important step toward a healthier life and reducing their cancer risk.
About 40 million Americans still smoke cigarettes, and tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the world. While cigarette smoking rates have dropped (from 42% in 1965 to 17% in 2014), cigar, pipe, and hookah – other dangerous and addictive ways to smoke tobacco – are very much on the rise. Smoking kills people – there’s no “safe” way to smoke tobacco.
Quitting smoking has immediate and long-term benefits at any age. Quitting is hard, but you can increase your chances of success with help. Getting help through counseling or medications can double or triple the chances of quitting successfully.

Most Americans drink at least 1 cup of coffee a day, and many feel like they can’t face the morning without it. So wouldn’t it be great if our beloved beverage helped protect us from cancer? There is, in fact, some reason to believe it could. Coffee is brewed from beans that contain antioxidants, which are thought to have a protective effect against cancer.
