Let’s put me aside for a minute. Right now, I’m watching the live broadcast of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C). If you’re breathing, you’ve probably been impacted by cancer — moms, dads, kids, sibs, friends… some still here, some not.
There’s no amount of pleading I can do to have you — my readers — donate to this cause. 100% of the public funds go straight to research. That’s all of it.
I’ve donated. How ’bout you?
So why is this getting top billing on the Deauxmayne? Because of my dad, who’s no longer here after fighting his fight, and for my mom, who *is* still here, fighting her fight and continually beating the odds. Because of two friends who are fighting their fight right now.
This is more than a cause. This is personal.
