Please help us. We need YOU.

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 25, 2010, 1:49 PM


Every day someone passes away from Cancer, submitting to the pain of the tight hold it had over their lives. Every day a child loses their mother, father, friend, without being able to help at all as they watch their loved one's slowly melt away...

But you can. You can help those people find a path of light to recovery.

By sponsoring even the smallest amount of money could help doctors and nurses find a way for a cure of cancer.
www.raceforlifesponsorme.org/p… < Please sponsor us online.
Our goal is to reach at least £400 for Race for Life before Sunday 4th July, a race where every step counts.

But what is Race For Life?

"Cancer Research UK's Race for Life is the largest women-only fundraising event in the UK.
Since 1994, women of all ages and fitness levels across the UK have come together at these inspiring events to walk, jog or run 5k to help beat cancer.
Some take part in celebration of surviving a cancer experience. Others take part in memory of a loved one or to give hope to a cancer-free future. But all of them share a common goal: to raise money for Cancer Research UK's groundbreaking work to beat cancer.
Every pound raised in sponsorship or fundraising helps to fund the work of over 4,500 researchers, doctors and nurses dedicated to helping more people beat cancer.
So far, an incredible 4.7 million women have raised over £370 million to fund Cancer Research UK's life-saving work." - From Cancer Research UK Website

So please, help us aid those in need of a cure. We need you.

My church had a team for Relay for Life, but I wasn't able to go. ;n; My mamaw had breast cancer and beat it, at age 79. <3 My papaw died from lung cancer before I was born, and my cousin has cancer in remission. I know at least 5 people with some form of cancer. It's truly terrible.

Things like this make me feel so helpless. The spare chang I drop in the little 'DONATIONS' jar at the corner store makes me feel like I'm doing nothing to help
