Stand up 2 cancer

Recommended Posts

Hi. Thanks for your well wishes Christa. Syl I just peeked at the web site that was set up for your sister. That's wonderful, what a great idea to keep people informed. I may copy that idea from you. Good luck to you and your sister.


Well we completed our walk today. It was wonderful. We had about 190 walkers and raised, get this, over $33,000 today from the walk and money still coming in. We had already raised $16,000 from our first fundraiser in May. It looks like our first year goal of $50,000 is going to really happen. We all met at Marie's house after to count the money and relaxed and it was great for the six of us to be together after all the hard work. Next year our goal will be much more. If you haven't had a chance to look at the web site or even if you have please take a peek next week. There will be pictures of the walk on there. It's Sisters Against Ovarian Cancer


Let's get rid of cancer once an for all!

There is way too much cancer in my family and I have my own "green card" which is the patiendt id card at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Yari is raising money right now for a leukemia walk. She has a link.

My only complaint about last night (besides Beyonce's hair) was the short length of the program. More could have been raised/ taught about the disease if it lasted more than an hour.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
