At the start of the West Sacramento's Relay for Life
benefit on May 6, Derek is given a survivor sash. "When they put the sash on
him, I was so proud of him, because I knew he had beat the odds," she says.
Cyndie recruited volunteers for the benefit, wanting to contribute something
to the cause. Before the race, Cyndie speaks to the crowd about her pride in
her son's bravery during his battle with cancer.
