Cancer has touched my life in several ways in the last year. I’ve lost two family members, and a third was diagnosed and is fighting multiple myeloma. It’s depressing to think about, and I worry about it. I worry about my family. I’ve got a strong connection to my family, I think, and I always want the best for them. I think the feeling is mutual. They are all just about the most important thing I have in the world.
The simple fact is, though, that there is not much I can do. But I have to do something. So this afternoon, I busted out the credit card for a good cause.
Today, I sponsored my cousins in The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.
And while I was at it, I also sponsored my friend Hill for the AIDS/LifeCycle.
So if you’re feeling gifty . . .
And if you’re really broke, maybe there’s something you can donate that’s free. I started a few months ago by donating my hair to Locks of Love.
