A month and a half ago, I sent you an email and a video link asking you to help me make my wish come true...a wish that someday no one will have to hear the words "you've got cancer".
My Relay for Life event is in just 33 days, and I can't wait to walk the track all night long to try and raise money to fight this dread disease. June 1 will be here before we know it, and I'm ready to lace up my sneaks and get walking - proud to be part of such a worldwide fundraising event.
Relay for Life is such a roller coaster of emotions for me - it's uplifting to see so many people walk and raise money for the American Cancer Society, it's heartbreaking to see how many luminaria are "in memory of" instead of "in honor of", it's stressful because I'm again serving as the event chair (argh!), and it's sad...so sad, because I would give anything to have Mum there with us.
But I hope that you will honor my mum Maria's memory - or the memory or fighting spirit of a special survivor in your life - by donating to this important cause. Donating online is easy, simple and secure:
Please...help me make my wish come true. You are my stars.
