This year, the year after my mother's passing, I am participating in the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life(r) by walking for one hour in her memory. Hers, and that of my great-grandmother, my grandmother and my father-in-law, all whom succumbed to cancer. Also in honor of a good friend who is a two-time survivor; also an acquaintance who was just recently diagnosed; also the late mother of my best friend; also a dear man who lives in Las Vegas and suffering from colorectal cancer.
Enough, already? There are countless others, many in my own family. So far I've raised $820.00 of the $3,000.00 I hope to raise.
The walk is June 3, 2006. Anyone reading who'd like more info, check in at
I'll be updating my progress!
