Last week I got an email from Jill, who keeps a blog called Glossy Veneer. Jill wrote to say she was participating in the Rock & Roll San Antonio Marathon where she’ll be a team member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training. The Team in Training are raising funds to help stop Leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma and myeloma. Jill herself has committed to raising $3,500, which is a lot of money, but not an unattainable goal – especially with help from blog readers.
Normally, I don’t post donation requests here and I don’t plan on making a habit of it, but Jill’s email hit close to home. A little friend of Fuzz’s was just diagnosed with lymphoma a few weeks ago and is currently in ICU at Dell Childrens Hospital. He’s been on my mind a lot lately and I feel deeply for his parents. For that reason, I’m posting a link to Jill’s fundraising site and asking everyone to consider donating a dollar or two. It all adds up.
