Another push

05.05.09 | 1 Comment

This Saturday I will be participating in a Sprint for Life with my class to raise ovarian cancer awareness and funds for the M.D. Anderson Blanton-Davis Research Program.

I’m quite close to my goal in an amazingly short time! As always I am beyond grateful for all the support I have in family, friends, and an extended network of people who are truly good-hearted.

If you would like to support the cause, click here to go to my donation page. My friend Kerri (who is doing some fundraising of her own!) suggested an enticement of baked goods for donors, which I believe to be an excellent idea and will honor.

I know I benefitted from the people who went before me and all the incredible research that went into the treatment that made me – and keeps me – cancer free. This is a small thing I can do to give back in some way.

Times are hard and families are large – one free thing you can do is help the women in your life be confident in their bodies and encourage them to see a doctor if they think something is wrong.

And dudes, gonads are gonads – what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. 🙂
