Twelfth consecutive march in Newark raises $345,000
For Kim Deloatch, watching her mother battle Stage 4 breast cancer became a way of life. Deloatch, who was just 12 years old when her mother Gardenia Reed was diagnosed, recalled doing homework in the hospital and turning to her older sister for maternal support. "Just seeing a person go through that at such a young age, sometimes you don't understand why," said Deloatch, now 30, of Cliffside Park. "You often ask, 'Why me? Why her?'" After Reed succumbed to cancer in 1994 at age 34, Deloatch made it her mission to continue fighting against the disease, strapping on her sneakers to march in breast cancer walks across the nation.

More than $90,000 is raised for American Cancer Society.
Hundreds packed West Orange High School's gym Friday night to Relay for Life, honoring those that survived cancer and remembering lost loved ones. The event, originally scheduled to take place on the field, was moved indoors after thunderstorms swept through the area. "Because a survivor can't stop when the going gets rough, nor do we cancel Relay when the weather is bad," said David Greulich, one of the organizers of the event. Friends, families, neighbors, classmates and sports teams gathered to walk around the gym as a way to fight back against the disease. More than $90,000 was raised and more than 60 teams walked.
