Please HELP me...pleeeeeease!

Good Morning to everyone~

Five years ago this month I made a promise to my 6th grade teacher, and dear friend that I would do whatever I could to help find a cure for Cancer. I was at her bed side when I made that promise and it was three days before she passed away to cancer.

The following four years after her dying, I was the event chair for My city's Relay for life. Relay for life is a huge event that raises money for the American Cancer society. This year I am a team Captain for the 2009 Relay. If you would like to donate any amount of money to my personal fund raising goal I would appreciate it SO MUCH! If you donate, you can email me your address and I will send you a purple HOPE bracelet, and you can wear it in honor or in memory of someone dear to you.

Together WE can make a difference!!

I will donate a little bit. It's all that I can afford that this time. I had Melanoma 2 years ago and my grandfather died of Brain Cancer almost 8 years ago. I too would love to find a cure for thes evil disease.

I admire you for doing Relay for Life. I am looking into events in my area to participate in.

Thanks for making a difference!

Hey Melissa...I just found out we're matched up for the favorite things swap. I've had so much fun reading through your older posts and look forward to putting a package together for you! I LOVE the video of your daughter chasing the laser! I'm so sorry to read about your miscarriage a couple of months ago. I lost a baby last June at 17 weeks. I'm now 8 weeks from delivering my first little boy, but I still miss my baby who's in heaven right now. I'm praying for you as you grieve and miss your precious tiny one.
