I continue to be humbled and honored by the generosity of my friends, whether they are people I actually know in person, or the ones who read my blog and connect with me online. I woke up this morning to a donation of $23.80 sitting in my inbox from Cheryl. Thank you so much, Cheryl. That was just an awesome way to start my day! And yesterday, I received a check from Judy, who won the auction for the water bottle with a bid of $7.50–she sent $25.00! The total amount raised for The Oral Cancer Foundation is $323.59!
I went to the post office today to mail off some items to winners. While I was there, I struck up a conversation with the postal clerk. She said her 17 year old nephew chews tobacco, and has been told by his dentist that he has “pre-cancerous cells” inside his cheek. I gave her one of my business cards, and invited her to look at my blog and follow the links here to The Oral Cancer Foundation to find information to give him–I hope he gives up that chew and lives a long and happy life cancer free, but the odds are, he won’t. Y’all say a prayer for him tonight, ok?
Don’t forget, I am still taking your spare change donations, just click on that “Donate” button over in the right side bar to send me the spare change in your Paypal account. And by the way, have you been screened yet? This is a benefit for The Oral Cancer Foundation.
