Well, as we all know, school is about to end for thousands of our children and of course we are making preparations for graduation, summer camps, vacations, and various other summer activities as we enter into June. Here are some important events that will be occurring prior to the school year's official end that you might not want to miss:
On Saturday, June 6, 2009, the American Cancer Society will be having its annual Relay for Life at Crosby High School , located at 300 Pierpont Road in the city’s East End. Many teams from schools across the city, as well as volunteer organizations will be there to raise money to support cancer research and those who have fought the disease and won, as well as to remember those who lost their battle with cancer. You can visit the Relay for Life website for more information.
Waterbury Police Lieutenant Vincent Riddick was recently diagnosed with a form of brain cancer known as Glioblastoma Multiforme-Grade IV (GBM). This cancer strain is very rare and often terminal. A few months ago he had surgery but unfortunately doctors were not able to remove the whole tumor. He has since been going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
