Relay for Life at WPI is less than a week away, and I would really appreciate any last minute donations! I’ve been relaying for several years now, but for these past couple years, I’ve been walking for someone I considered a friend and a brother by everything but blood. I became 20 years old exactly one month ago. My friend never had the chance. Please help me support the effort to find a cure! <3
I really appreciate the support everyone, and again, even if you can’t donate, please REBLOG to help spread the word! Thanks, everyone!!
So today is my birthday, and as I turn 20, I realize that there are so many people out there that will never reach their 20th birthday.
Most people can name at least one person in their life who has cancer or has been affected my cancer. Personally, I lost one of my best friends to cancer, and I can’t help but feel saddened that he never managed to escape his teenage years.
I’m posting this on Tumblr because the only way I know of to do my part and try to find a way to cure cancer is to donate to the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life.
I’ve been a participant in Relay for Life for ages, but it wasn’t until Matt’s death a couple years ago that I really took its mission personally.
I don’t know if I’ll get any responses from this, but if you have anything to spare, I would really appreciate it if you could donate to my Relay for Life team. Even if you can’t donate, please reblog this post to others! I Relay because I want people to live through their 20th birthday like I have had the fortune to. I want people to live past 20 and grow old with their family. And I hope you share this feeling.
Help donate and give others the chance for more birthdays. Cancer can be beaten, with your help.
