Every person who walks in the American Cancer Society Relay for Lif has a reason for walking…whether it’s a relative, a friend or a co-worker, cancer has touched every person in some way.  The Luminaria Ceremony gives you the opportunity to honor or remember someone with a candle lit bag, bearing the name of that person touched by cancer.  Because the 2012 Relay for Life® of Burbank is being held on Mother’s Day weekend, for each $10 luminaria donation made to Relay, your personalized message honor your Mother or any special Mother in your life, will shine through the night in the 2012 “Mother’s Garden”.
