PALM HARBOR – Cancer has a way of sneaking up on you and changing your entire world within a breath.

Pina Sherwin understands this better than most. After losing her father at age 14 to the disease, Sherwin’s life changed from that point on.

Now, having survived thyroid cancer herself, Sherwin looks at cancer with new eyes and is dedicated to finding a cure to this devastating disease. So Sherwin banded together with fellow survivors and friends to form Team Palm Harbor Pelicans, as part of the annual Relay For Life fundraiser April 12 at Palm Harbor University High School.

Relay For Life is an act of global activism meant to celebrate cancer survivors and honor loved ones lost, while also raising money to help find a cure for the disease.

After losing many loved ones to the disease, Sherwin made it her mission to do her part in funding research.

Too many people (close to me) have died from cancer,” she said. “I’ve lost my father, an aunt, a sister-in-law who was only 32, and a dear friend a couple of years ago.”

The Palm Harbor Pelicans first attended Relay For Life in 2010, and are in their third year of participation in 2013. The Pelicans organized many pre-event fundraisers, including its annual Thirsty Marlin fundraiser, which raised over $2,000, and a Chick-fil-A fundraiser that resulted in 20 percent of food sales going to the American Cancer Society.
