I'm lucky this year to be a part of my first ever Relay for Life situation. Along with several awesome Greenwood people, I'm a part of Team Szady. This team was created by my friend Beth Barnes to honor her cousin, Michael Szady. Here's a word from Beth:
This year I am putting together a team for Relay for Life to honor the memory of my cousin Michael Szady who lost his battle with cancer last May.
Michael Szady is the oldest of all my cousins and blazed a trail in life that is an honor for us to follow. First one to go to an Ivy league School, travel the world playing Rugby, pioneering research at MIT, starting his own business and becoming a family man. In the eloquent words of his brother, " No one finished 43 years more than Michael. He finished everything with passion, competitiveness and love. Michael proved that it is not the total amount of time we have here --it's how you live, and what you do, that truly matters"
Michael loved many things great wine, Bob Seeger, the Boston Red Soxs, science and technology, and a good long running joke. In his honor, we will live happily ever after, listen to Bob Seeger, and pass along his zeal and passion for life.
Michael sounds like an awesome guy, I'm glad to be a part of this team!
During this time, I'll be remembering those no longer here and praying for this that are currently fighting. Hopefully, money raised this year will help ease that fight and get us closer to a cure.
My Grandfather, a cancer survivor and all around good dude
