My grandma died of cancer. My Nana died of cancer. My Grandpa had cancer. My only aunt died in July, 2010 of cancer. My mom is a cancer survivor.
The kids and I are walking in our 5th Relay for Life this year. I originally set our fundraising goal at $750 but when our generous friends and family put us beyond that I raised our goal to $1,000. As of right now our fundraising total is at $1,011. Isn't that crazy? I'm so grateful to every single person who donated and is showing their support in our efforts.
I was made aware this year of a really important study that the American Cancer Society is conducting called CPS-3. There is a little video that is a minute and a half long that explains the study at the bottom of this post. It's awesome because our local RFL is one of the locations at which you can sign up. I am going to be a part of this study and am so glad that I can contribute more than just time and money. My information will be compiled with half a million other people's to determine the factors that can help in the research of cancer prevention. Won't you consider joining, too?
