Cancer comes in many forms. For some, there is treatment. For others, there is treatment that only prolongs the inevitable.

I lost my grandmother to cancer in the early 2000's, and shortly afterward I met someone who became a very dear friend who was celebrating 5 years of Leukemia remission.
I was on Facebook when my friend who has survived Leukemia posted that status message that you see at least once per month that says to change your status message for one hour. I was over come with an urge to DO something, because changing my status message was NOT going to help in finding a cure. 
I searched for a cancer research fund, and found Cancer Research Foundation. While on their site I created a fundraiser of sorts in my grandmother's name. It will run for 24 months, and, after that, any funds accrued go to the above foundation. 
I post the link here for anyone who happens upon it. Please click. Please - if you can - donate to help fund finding a cure for cancer.
Thank you.
Donate to Cancer Research Foundation by clicking here. The link will open in a new window.
