June 13th marks the first Relay for Life that JMS will participate in.  Cancer has touched our family in many, many heartbreaking ways.  Our oldest son, when he was 16, was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Disease... 20 years later he will be attending the event to walk the survivors lap!!  I lost both of my beautiful sisters to cancer.  Vicki died at age 45 after putting up a very determined fight against a very aggressive form of breast cancer.  Debbie died at age 59 to a very aggressive form of uterine cancer after having her life ripped out from under her with a year and a half of hell from diagnosis/treatment/lack of treatment.  I know my family is not alone.  So many lives have been touched by this retched disease!  I have always wanted to do a Relay and this year if falls on my sister's birthday! Vicki would have celebrated her 59th birthday this year!  So much opportunity for love and life lost!  Please help us raise funds for the American Cancer Society to help beat this plague of our times!  There are 3 ways you can help.

1) We will be raffling off one $500 Gift Certificate to JMS Studio!  Runner up will receive $100 JMS gift certificate!

Cost of tickets:    1 ticket for $2 

                   3 tickets for $5  

                   10 tickets for $10. 

Purchase here through Paypal or stop by the studio.  If purchase through our Pay Pal we will assign  the correct number of tickets you purchased and put them in the drawing for you.   We will be running this raffle throughout the relay so you can also stop down to the event which will be held at the Perry Elementary School to purchase tickets. Winner will be drawn at 6am June 14th at the end of the event. 


2)  You can stop by the studio and buy a luminary for $5.  These are bags that you decorate in memory or honor of someone you know that is battling cancer or has lost their battle.  There will be a lighting ceremony at 9 pm where these will be placed around the track.  You can either attend the ceremony and place your decorated bag or you can return it to our studio and we will place it for you.


3)  You can donate directly to our Relay for Life link here.


Thank you, in advance, for your help!
