Sort of disappointed in the lack of comments. Therefore, 100 comments = $100 donation has been extended Comments will now close when they reach 100.
Sometimes, when I'm fast asleep, I have the best dreams of amazing blog posts. Then I wake up and the amazingness is all gone. I'm a mediocre real life blogger at best, if you could see my dream blog posts I'd be a fabulous A-list blogger fo sho!
But as a blogger I have the power to deliver a very strong message. I've blogged about it before, here and here and even here. It being that bastard better known as breast cancer.
Last month I met Brandie. Yesterday was Brandie's 32nd birthday. Tonight I'll see Brandie again at a blogging event and I'll offer her my support, prayers and encouragement. You see, Brandie was just diagnosed with breast cancer and on Wednesday she's scheduled for a bilateral mastectomy.
Twenty some odd years ago, I met Sue. She was engaged to a friend of my then husband's. Unfortunately, as my marriage went south, so did many of those friendships I made through him. Thanks to the beauty of Facebook, I recently reconnected with Sue and her husband. I learned that six years ago, Sue was also diagnosed with breast cancer.
As Sue celebrates six years of being cancer free she's preparing to once again walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. She walks so that other women, women like Brandie will continue to have hope.
So today dear readers, I have two small favors to ask of you. Head over to Brandie's blog and leave her some love as she begins her journey to kick cancer's a$$. Keep her and her family in your prayers. And if you can, please make a donation to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. No donation is too small or insignificant. I understand that money is tight for everyone and that's why I'm personally donating $1 for every comment left on this blog post today, Tuesday May 17th, 2011(up to a total of $100, one comment per person, and no anonymous comments.)
No joke! I want to help insure that every woman has access to adequate screening and treatment when necessary.
So please leave your comment below and help me spread the word by telling your friends!
