What’s so funny about cancer?

If you’re looking for a good laugh, check out my friend Lori’s blog post just another day at the “office”.  After you finish that one, read how she compares herself to Amy Winehouse.  Talk about inspirational.  You gotta love Lori. 

I’ve met so many great people through my cancer diagnosis.  And we all realize, there is lots to laugh about.  Yes, cancer is a horrible disease and I will do everything in my power to raise money and awareness to help find cures and better treatments.  But in the meantime, getting a cancer diagnosis does not mean you should stop living and laughing.  Lori is just one of many who continue to laugh, smile and live life through treatments, tests, procedures and surgeries. 

I am now 2 days away from the one year anniversary of my diagnosis.  The time is going so quickly.  I look back on the past year and wonder where it went–especially the past 6 months since I finished my treatment.  One year ago, I never imagined I would have a team of 26 people walking in the breast cancer 3day.  Ta Ta Breast Cancer is currently in the top 10 of all fund raising teams in Michigan.  We are rapidly approaching the $50,000 mark.  I know this $50,000 can make a huge difference in the fight against breast cancer.  It’s a fight we cannot stop until the disease is gone!  If you can donate and have not had the chance, please click on my team page and donate to any one of my team members.  I’ve made my $2,200 minimum but lots of my teammates are still working hard.  You can also check out our great fundraisers on my team page and help support us that way.  Or even better, there is still time to sign up and walk with us.  I promise it will be a memorable 3 days.
