Help me reach my goal and spread some hope through your prayer and encouragement...

Hi!

I just registered online for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life 2011.

When I registered, I was issued my own personal web page. It explains what Relay For Life is and why I chose to get involved. My web page also has my  goal and how much money I’ve raised so far  if you would like to watch my progress.

Please visit my page, and while you’re there you can find links to the American Cancer Society if you need any personal, friend, or family support ? Here is the link to ACS web page...

We are trying to helping create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. What could be better?

Thank you so much for your intrest, prayers, and support. If you ever have questions about cancer, call the American Cancer Society toll-free at 1.800.227.2345. Their cancer information specialists are available to speak with you 24/7, 365 days a year.

The last year my boys and I supported ACS we raised over 1200.00 as a family... watch,cheer us on, and pray for us and see if we beat our record and spread some hope.

Hi,

I just joined Relay recently myself!  I'm still trying to come up with ways to fundraise and finding it a little difficult.  I'm not comfortable actually asking people to donate or selling in a way that might put people "on the spot". I do not want people to feel obligated, especially if they know I'm a survivor.  I thought maybe you might have some ideas.  Your enthusiasm is really inspiring! Keep up the good work!!
