Update: Relay for Life is tomorrow, so if you would like to make a donation, today’s the day! Luminarias in honor, memory, or support of a loved one are available for $10 by following the link below. I’m a little over $100 away from my goal. I appreciate your help!
Last week I was grumbling to a friend because I had the dreaded pink-eye, along with an extremely sore throat, a sliver of glass embedded in my foot, and everything else that threatens to overwhelm me on a daily basis. Well, my friend crashed my pity party by saying, “Be happy. At least you don’t have cancer.”
True. My pink-eye and the rest of my piddly little troubles can’t compare to what millions of others are going through. I know plenty of cancer survivors, friends who are still fighting the battle, and some who did not survive. I’m sure you do too.
So, I decided to join a Relay for Life team and I have some serious catching up to do with my fundraising. Relay for Life is a fundraiser, where relay teams take turns walking around the track to raise money and awareness to help the American Cancer Society create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. Our team is called Adios Cancer! and our relay begins June 11th.
I’m hoping that some of you will be willing to make a donation to the American Cancer Society to help me reach (surpass!) my fundraising goal. For a minimum $10 donation you can request a luminaria in support, honor, or memory of someone you love. I would be proud to walk in their honor.
