Nationwide Title Clearing is showing its support for Pinellas County Commission Chair John Morroni by sponsoring him as their inspirational survivor and making him an honorary team member at the 2012 Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event.
PALM HARBOR - Nationwide Title Clearing will show its support for Pinellas County Commission Chair John Morroni by sponsoring him as their inspirational survivor and making him an honorary team member at the 2012 Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event.

Employees of NTC, a leading national post-closing services provider for the residential mortgage industry, have so far collected over $5,200 in donations this year for the American Cancer Society, Relay For Life of Palm Harbor.

NTC invites and encourages employees and friends to join them in the fight against this disease. A close friend to a long-time employee of NTC, Morroni is currently fighting his own personal battle with cancer for the second time.

Morroni was first diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the fall of 2008. He announced just after Christmas that it had returned. The commissioner is currently undergoing cancer treatment.

“John has always been fighting for the community, and it is time everyone fights for him,” said Bruce Sheehey, NTC employee. Morroni is a decorated community service citizen and past awards have included but are not limited to: Florida Sheriffs Association Lifetime Honorary Membership (1999), Pinellas County Council of Firefighters "Appreciation" Award (1999), Clearwater Jaycees "Good Government" Award (1995) and Pinellas Park/Gateway Chamber of Commerce “Lloyd Tingler Good Government Award” (2009).

“We all need to realize how much John has done for our community and take this opportunity to do something for him. The Relay For Life of Palm Harbor event is a remarkable way to raise money and awareness for a disease that can affect anyone. It is our turn to give back and show support” Sheehey said.

Palm Harbor firefighters support the cause

Palm Harbor firefighters will join the April 13 Relay for Life event at Palm Harbor University High School, 1900 Omaha St.

Firefighter’s from Palm Harbor Fire Rescue have formed their own team and will help fight the cancer battle as team “Rescue Heroes” in keeping with this year’s cartoon theme. The firefighters have been actively participating in Relay For Life events since 2006.

In a report by the University of Cincinnati’s environmental health department, researchers found that firefighters are twice as likely to develop testicular cancer and have significantly higher rates of non-Hodgkin lymphoma and prostate cancer than people in other professions — and overall found 10 cancers that were either possibly or probably related to firefighting.

“Our inspiration comes from those who have fought against cancer, are currently fighting cancer, and whose families and friends that have supported them. It is important for us to show our support to our own that have battled cancer and to support our community in this fight,” said James Angle, fire chief of Palm Harbor Fire Rescue and team captain. Chief Angle also serves on the Palm Harbor Relay For Life Committee as the operations chair for the event.

Team fundraising is well underway and the Palm Harbor Fire Rescue Team has already raised $2,360 so far for this year’s event. The Palm Harbor Fire Rescue team “Rescue Heroes” plan to host a chili and salsa fundraiser along with fire truck rides on the Dalmatian truck at the event to raise additional donations for the American Cancer Society.
