Fight Like A Girl

Fighting like a girl is normally considered an insult- but for one organization--it is a slogan that stands for much more.

Members of the Pitt County Relay For Life are selling t-shirts with the slogan, "Fight Like A Girl," honoring women who battle cancer.

For three hours Friday people went to the St. James United Methodist church in Greenville to buy drink coozies, t-shirts, and sweatshirts. The proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society.

Jennifer Roberts of Pitt County Relay For Life says the reason for doing this goes beyond just charity. "It's very important. I have a really good friend that survived cancer twice. I lost a very very dear friend last year from cancer. We need to keep working to find a cure."

If you want to purchase one of the t-shirts you can contact Jennifer at j.roberts27858@gmail.com.
