American Cancer Society Relay For Life

I just purchased luminarias to honor Naomi and remember Betsy at the Relay for Life in Alameda tomorrow.  As much as I don't like the idea of crusading, I'm starting to feel like it's time for Lung Cancer to get the research funds it needs.  I see nonsmokers developing it increasingly (people I know!), and the lack of buzz is quite literally killing me. 

Anyway, I didn't ask for donations when I last posted this link, and I suppose I should've.  If anyone would like to donate a few pennies to find a cure for cancer, please do so here.  It's my homepage for the Relay, and I think the page is only available until Sunday, when the Relay ends.  It starts tomorrow around 9:00 AM PST.  Either way, I'm walking the Survivor Lap, and remembering all those fighting for their lives, and those who've lost the battle.

Thanks to those who've taken up the cause.

  1. Hi Jazz, Kara and I just got back from the Relay. We bought Luminarias – one for you and one for Kara's Aunt Kay. We ran/walked two miles until we were really stinky. I had a great time and thanks for clueing me in on this event. Together, me and Kara raised about two hundred and fifty dollars. We had a Boy Scout take a picture of us in our cute Relay For Life T-shirts. I'll post the photo later when we down load it from the camera. I hope you go at night and get to see your Luminaria.
