flat begging

Ok, so now, I am just begging you. Please donate! I really want to raise as much money as I can for The Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) to help give as much money as possible to fight cancer. If you do not know much about LAF here are a few things.

Yes it was started by 7 time Tour de France winner and testicular cancer survivor Lance Armstrong. It helps to provide 24 hour support to people living with cancer. You can call anytime and they have someone there, a survivor to help with the terrifying questions you might have, because your fear is not always set to the 9-5 office hours. The have detailed information on the different treatment options, because there are often several options out there. If Lance Armstrong would have gone with the first treatment suggested to him, he would not have gone on to inspire many people with cancer or affected by cancer being in their life. His lungs would have been trashed by the treatment. LAF also helps to be an advocate to help you get a second or a third opinion and they also help when there is no more treatment options left. It is important to know smeone is there for you.

I believe in The Lance Armstrong Foundation and that is why I plan to participate in a Livestrong Challenge every year. They have gone global and working to end cancer on many fronts, not just in the U.S., but everywhere. Why? In 2010, cancer is to become the leading cause of death around the world. Cancer has no borders!


Thank you,
