Shots And Thoughts From An Ordinary Guy.

Tuesday, June 2, 2009


Here is an email that I received this afternoon from a good friend of mine. She is raising funds for cancer patients through the LIVESTRONG Challenge. During these difficult economic times charities tend to be some of the hardest hit. She has a financial goal of $250... won't you help me help her reach her goal!

The link is in the copy of the email below and May God bless you for serving Him in this way.

Good Afternoon,

Today, there are nearly 12 million people living with cancer in United States, and it is estimated that close to 1.4 million more will be diagnosed this year alone. One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. We all have friends and family that has faced this challenge, and that’s why I choose to raise funds for this cause.

About the LIVESTRONG Challenge

The LIVESTRONG Challenge is the Lance Armstrong Foundation's signature fundraising event. Your donation to the LIVESTRONG Challenge will support the LAF's mission to inspire and empower people affected by cancer

The LAF’s website serves as an invaluable resource for cancer survivors, families, and caregivers around the world, including information ranging from what you can expect during your cancer experience to the opportunity to get one-on-one advice and support through the SurvivorCare program. The LAF also works to increase awareness of issues facing cancer survivors within our communities and among our representatives in Congress.

I am truly excited to share this journey with you. Thank you for your support and for being a part of my fight! Please forward this message on to anyone that you think wants to pick a fight with cancer.

Thank You,

Carmen Mazzia
