WHY PURPLE RIBBON WARRIOR: This is a story about one of the most courageous people you would have ever met. In the year 2005, Mary Dunbar-Daluisio was diagnosed with Carcinoid Tumors and fought this disease for 11 years. During this courageous battle it was never about her. She stood firm with her belief that everything happens for a reason and that with her diagnosis, the doctors at Roswell Park could learn more about the cause, treatment & the finding of a cure in her lifetime.
Mary chose to help other survivors during her own fight by taking part in the Relay For Life, an American Cancer Society fundraiser that supports the fight against ALL cancers by funding research, education, advocacy and patient service programs right here in Buffalo. Purple is the color of Relay For Life, the ribbon is a symbol of hope and support, and a warrior is any one fighting for a cure…. A Purple Ribbon Warrior is somebody looking to put an end to ALL cancers.
For years, Mary was a ray of sunshine to so many with her positive outlook. It is now our time to remember & honor Mary, along with all survivors, by helping in any way that we can do to fight back against cancer through Relay For Life of Grand Island & the ACS– the group Mary worked so hard with to find a cure. Please join us in the fight for a cure and run/walk this race for the survivor in your life.
