So I stole the image above from my personal Komen fundraising site! How cool is that?!?!?!?!? I started this whole adventure being so nervous about raising money (and asking my loved ones to do so!) but this is the result! I am almost there! It's just so shocking to me that one person *really* can make a difference. Not only will 75% of this amount stay here in St Louis BUT it will help someone (or more approximately, "someones") with having access to a mammogram!
It's impossible to describe how I feel about this effort (which looks like it will be successful!). I've never really raised money like this before but I could get used to this feeling of feeling just darn great! I know some of the most generous people ever and I hope that all this goodness results in a cure for something that has been screwing up peoples' lives for way too long. Cancer research *has* to find a cure soon. Let's make this darn thing history!
Oh, and here is my fundraising link again, by the way! Click here!
