Relay for Life

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.

    Thank-you for getting behind the Relay cause Lori, my family has been a huge supporter of our local Relay for Life since we lost my sister to cancer in in 1999. It is amazing what people can accomplish when they pull together for a common cause.

    If everyone who read or benefited from Lori’s blog gave $10 to support the cause, all of us will be winners in finding cures and relief for people with cancer. I have dedicated mine in support of a friend who has colon cancer. What about the rest of you?

      So true Rachel! 3,000 unique visitors last month x $10 each = $30,000! I think I’d get some sort of plaque for that kind of fundraising! 🙂
