quarkwiz: (Run/Walk)
Hello! Thought you wouldn't hear from me this year, eh? This is the latest I've started fundraising. I do hope you will help me...

On Saturday, May 1st, I will be participating in the 13th Annual Revlon Run/Walk For Women. You can join me in the fight against women's cancers by making a pledge or donation on my behalf. Your pledge will help fund important research into the cause and cure of women's cancers, prevention, education and support service programs. All funds we raise will go to the cause, not just a percentage.

On a personal note, I had a mammogram scare this past December--I was called back for a second one because the nice people at Guttman Diagnostic had found an "anomaly" in my annual checkup films. I waited hours for the results and was the last one in the waiting area when they called me...to walk me into a room with THREE doctors, all of whom introduced themselves by name. I must have looked as terrified as I felt, because the first one immediately reassured me that all was well. But it might not have been. I think that too many women must have that same gut-punch fear all too often, and I hope that what we raise by walking can go towards reducing that fear.

Here's my fundraising page, where you can make a secure donation if you like. Every little bit will help! No guilt trips. There is no set donation amount. And it's tax deductible! In the past, my company matched 50% of what I raised, but I can't count on that happening this year. It might, it might not.

Thanks very much in advance! My apologies if my plea is not welcome. Also, PLEASE let me know if you've already donated to someone else--or are planning to. I'll go away, I promise!
