As darkness fell along the beach behind the Marriott Crystal Shores, Melissa Felice and Dr. Loan Lam were busy. Along with a group of volunteers led by logistics chairman Raul Medina, both Felice, the executive director for the Marco Island unit of the American Cancer Society, and Lam, president of the group, were providing “hands on” leadership at Marco Island’s Relay for Life, setting out hundreds of luminaria on the sand.
