I was contacted by them due to the fact I was team captain for the Curves that I work out at for the Revlon Run Walk. I have signed up as the team coordinator for Curves again and we are doing Denim Week at the club and collecting $5 from each member which will then be sent to EIF. All the money will be going directly to breast cancer research.
To donate to my team directly on line you can go here:
Why do I do this? Because I am a 6 year survivor and also because I have lost several friends to this disease lately. The most recent was just this past Saturday. I wonderful woman aged 55 who fought bravely for seven years. She was one of Paul's cousins. In 2003 she wrote a letter to a woman who had just been diagnosed with cancer. She published this letter as an article entitled Tales of a Reluctant Sailor. At the time she wrote this there was no sign of cancer left in her body. The cancer did come back, though. It is well worth the time to read and you will see what a special lady she was.
So, this Friday don't forget to wear those jeans!
