NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – The war against cancer continues with efforts to raise money for research here in Western Massachusetts.

Relay for Life volunteers and cancer survivors gathered in Northampton Saturday. They began planning for the American Cancer Society’s 17th annual Hampshire County Relay for Life in June.

The Waskiewicz’s of Hadley are cancer survivors. They’ve lost four family members to cancer including their daughter.

Elsie Waskiewicz told 22News, what relay for life has meant to her and her husband.

“I think a big part of all the research that we’re survivors, you can help maybe save another person’s life, yes that’s what it is, more birthdays,” said cancer survivor Elsie Waskiewicz.

The Hampshire County Relay for Life weekend is set for June 13th and 14th at Look Park in the Florence section of Northampton.
