The Fightin Fillies is a team registered with The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life.
Christina is the team captain and she is joined by her closest and dearest friends. Since going through her own battle with Cancer and winning, Christina has been motivated to help raise money for the Cancer Society and fight for other Cancer Survivors. A Cancer Survivor is described as an individual living with Cancer from the time of diagnosis. The definition has been expanded to further include family, friends and voluntary caregivers who are affected by the diagnosis in any way.

Thanks to all the people who took up this fight in the past, Christina received the best care and treatment possible. Her Cancer was an extremely rare gynecological Cancer, approximately 1 in 1,000,000 women get it. If it weren't for the people that took up this fight before her, she might not be here today.

The Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life is an overnight non-competitive relay that celebrates cancer survivors and pays tribute to the lives of loved ones. It involves teams of 10 people who take turns walking, running or strolling around a track to raise money to support the work of the Canadian Cancer Society. It's a night of fun, friendship and fund raising to beat cancer. Every step we take in Relay raises money to help the Canadian Cancer Society save lives.

Funds raised through Relay For Life make a difference. They help the Canadian Cancer Society fund the most promising research projects in the country, provide information services and support programs in the community and advocate for public policies that prevent cancer and help those living with it.
