Walk for Women

I can't believe it's been two years since they took that big old pomegranate out of me! It's because of my wonderful appendix deciding to rupture when it did, that I had a CT Scan and was one of the lucky ones! So, I figure it's about time I do something and give back!!

I am doing the EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women for women's cancers on May 7, in Los Angeles.

CLICK HERE for my PERSONAL PAGE and hit "give a gift" to donate.

With one in three women predicted to develop cancer in her lifetime,

we've all felt the effect of women's cancers.

Your donation can help support cutting-edge research into the cause and cure for women's cancers and advanced early detection at The Gilda Radner Hereditary Cancer Detection Program at Cedars-Sinai Women's Cancer Institute at the Samuel Oschin Center, Providence St. Joseph Medical Center, and the Revlon/UCLA Women's Cancer Research Program. Money is also provided for much needed psycho-social support services to women with cancer, and their families.

I know there are so many worthy causes out there but even the smallest amount can make a difference. Please sponsor whatever amount you can in honor of your wives, your aunts, your sisters, daughters and friends! Even 5 or 10 would be great! Anything.

Thank you so much.

"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.
I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty,
believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."

—Louisa May Alcott

"Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness.
It is not attained through self-gratification
but through fidelity to a worthy purpose."

Beautiful post and so very true--I've been giving to several groups this year to support breast cancer research and now MS in honor of my mom, as well as to the people of Japan and Haiti. Certain causes just NEED us all so much.
