Superheroes for a Cure

I hate cancer!!!!  It is not biased on who it affects.  You can be young, old, male, female, any race.  Cancer attacks the body with a vengeance.   As I write you right now my grandpa, Papa Glen, is struggling through prostate cancer and fighting to live each day.  Although I have prayed I have not done anything proactive to help find a cure for cancer, until now. 

My friend, Carol, is running for Woman of the Year for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  We have created a blog that explains how this cancer has deeply affected her life and it gives you a link to donate.  Here is the blog www.superheroesforacure.blogspot.com.  PLEASE check it out!!  This is not a contest to bring glory to her, but a way to raise money to help others.    Carol is one of my sorority sisters, my college roommate, my maid of honor, “Auntie M” to Addie, and so much more. She is not one that just cries and prays, she gets up and looks for ways to help.  She has a fire within her that burns to help others.  Carol has been personally affected by blood cancer; to help find a cure has become her passion.  If YOU stop for just a moment I know that you can think of at least one person that has struggled with this type of cancer. 

So will you be a Superhero?  Don't feel like if you can't give a lot then you shouldn't give.  $10 can do so much!  All you have to do is skip getting fast food for ONE day, and you have helped fund research to end this misery.  So please, go to the blog, click on the donate button, and let's begin to be proactive!!

Blessings to each and everyone of you!  This weekend she had a benefit in Arlington that we attended.  It was so much fun!   It was a great time of delicious food and fun fellowship!  Enjoy the pictures below or click on the album to see more!
