Canadian Cancer Society Crusade

I just realized that the Relay for Life in which I'm entered on a team is in 2 weeks. Oops! What a horrible thing to forget. So in an effort to reach my goal by then, I've sent out a mass email for donations. Anything anyone can give really.

Hiya! I've been meaning to get around to this email for a while, but it's a hard one for me to write. I hate asking for money from people, but every day, the fight against cancer is made easier for so many people because of your donations.

As most of you know, my mom got breast cancer a few years ago. She had a mastectomy and all the tests done after the fact showed no sign that the cancer had spread beyond her breast. After several meetings with her doctor, she decided to have the other breast removed to *reduce* the risk of developing breast cancer again. Nothing will ever make the percentage zero. Her story is not unique or even rare, but that's what I want to make it.

Your donation doesn't have to be big - one or two dollars would do, but the important thing is that all those one and two dollar donations turn into hundreds and thousands of dollars. My donation along with yours will help so many others fighting this terrible disease.

At the kick-off steak night supper, the office manager of the Saskatoon Canadian Cancer Society unit told us about an amazing discovery made in an Ontario cancer research facility. They have found something that, in tests, has removed cancerous
tumours from mice completely and when the same mice are injected with more cancer, that cancer too is gone within a time frame. It sounded amazing and it means we're getting somewhere and all the money being directed towards research just means we get closer everyday.

If any of you saw my bald head, you'd know how passionate I am about this disease. Please help me in the fight against cancer.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

So there you have it. If you would like to pledge online, please do. As I said, every little bit helps. Our team name is Purple Hats.

The team name is actually just Purple Hats. Or you could just enter my first and last name to pledge to me.

And I'll call you Erin.
