First off, thank you to everyone who donated to the Breast Cancer 3 Day fund on behalf of Teresa. Thanks to some very generous people she is over the $1000 mark. The thing is, I know there are a LOT of people who read your blog. And I know they've all been meaning to donate. But here's the deal. The ONLY reason Trees is killing her summer to spend hours & hours walking and helping with fundraisers is for me.

And I know she hates asking anyone for anything. ever. Mostly because she is way more of a giver than a taker. She's doing this crap she doesn't even really like, for me. Her best friend, who was unlucky enough to get breast cancer right before Christmas. She knows firsthand how I benefited from the research that says when you turn 40, you need a mammogram. & Thank GOD, I followed the guideline, because they caught it early, and so it would seem for now we kicked cancer's ass. But if nothing more is done, 1 in 8 women WILL get this in their lifetime- that's you, your sister, your best-friend, your mom. So please don't put this off- donate today to Trees' account for the 3 Day, so I don't have to walk alone. It takes two minutes to go to the website.

Thanks! Don't make me filibuster. I don't have that kind of time. Really. Life is short, and I'd rather read cartoons or dance.
Sue
