A note from Lisa Burdick:
Many of us have been touched by the “C” word in one way or the other. One word which is so terrifying, so unpredictable, so destructive, but yet so eye opening that changes someones’ life the moment it comes out of the doctors mouth, CANCER. A friend, a neighbor, a mom or dad, or a distant relative who you might have never met, might have experienced a battle so heartbreaking that you sometimes ask yourself “What if it was me”?
It touched our family in 2006, when my husband David went in for a routine doctor’s visit and received the shocking news of… “It might be Cancer”, and so it was. Time went into fast gear, from emergency surgery to ICU to oncologist visits every three months.. Every bit of our normalcy in that moment had changed.
However, as it came into our lives, it also changed the course of our lives. The blessing of realizing, “LIVE LIFE WITH NO REGRETS, making a dream that had been talked about for years became a reality with God’s Grace. TWELVE STONES and CHEF David came to be.
Twelve Stones and our family, have taken the challenge to raise awareness and funds for the local Relay for Life Event, benefiting The American Cancer Society, that will take place on : Friday, May 15 6pm – May 16 6am at the Lewisville High School 9th Grade Campus (1250 W. Round Grove Road), Flower Mound, Texas.
You too will know of someone else’s life who has been interrupted by some form of Cancer. Their strength, courage and fight is one to be recognized, celebrated and remembered.
SO TODAY, I’D LIKE TO INVITE YOU to come support us by walking with our Team- “TWELVE STONES”- Leave No Stone Unturned for the Fight!

What is the RELAY FOR LIFE?
RELAY FOR LIFE is a family-friendly, fundraising walk that takes place the entire night into the next morning. Relay teams walk around a track or path at a local high school, park or fair ground in their community to celebrate survivors, remember those who lost their battle, and to inspire others to fight back by raising money to help find a cure. Because this is a team event, this allows individual participants to come and go as they please, as they are able to sign up for a time to walk that works best for them and their family. Each team, must have a team member on the track at all times from start to finish–as this symbolizes the meaning of Cancer Never Sleeps.
Although this is a fundraising event and any amount of donation is greatly appreciated. Our main goal is Awareness— TO SPREAD THE WORD AND TO GET ENTIRE FAMILIES WHO KNOW FAMILIES that have been affected by Cancer to show their love and support on the track with many others in solidarity for the common goal of finding a cure.
Once I have been notified that you have joined “Twelve Stones” team, We will fill you in on additional event details. If you have any questions or problems signing up, please contact me. I will be more than happy to sign you up or answer any questions you might have.
Come help us make a difference. SO one day, our school track can be filled with support and love from “our friends, our neighbors, our community”
