It just HAS to stop!


This June I will be participating in the Relay for Life here in town.  There are so many reasons why this is important and why I am doing it.

I am walking for my dear Grandmother that I lost in 2008. I'm walking for my Uncle who is currently battling the disease. I am walking for someone who was very special to me - a mentor to me who lost her battle in 2007. I am walking for one of my dear friends who is a survivor.

I am walking for these four.

I am also walking for every single child that has been diagnosed and battled this horrible disease. I am walking for my countless uncles, aunts, cousins and friends who have lost this fight, braved this fight and those that are survivng. I am walking for every single person who is going through it now. I am walking for the future. I NEVER want my children to have to battle this disease. I don't want any of your children to battle it either.

Can you PLEASE help? If you know me - you know it's EXTREMELY hard for me to ask for help - but this is something so important to me, I'm letting my guard down and doing so.

I know times are tough. I know this recession has hurt all of us. I know that sometimes just thinking of giving to a cause is overwhelming because funds are tight. But EVERY tiny tiny bit helps. Every dollar. A cup of coffee. A fast food meal. A gossip magazine. All those can be traded in - for only ONE day - to help fight this disease. Just one day. Just $5.

Can you help me??

I have set a personal goal of $1,000 and I'm on my way but need your help to get me there!

The American Cancer Society Relay For Life® is a life-changing event that gives people a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease. Relay For Life® helps raise much-needed funds and awareness to help the American Cancer Society save lives from cancer.

Please support my efforts by visiting my personal web page to make a secure, tax-deductible online donation.

Every donation really does make a difference, and helps the American Cancer Society save lives every day by helping people stay well and get well, finding cures, and fighting back.

Thank you so very very much!
