You guys rock!

Well, my fundraising goal for Relay For Life has been met! You guys all ROCK. Thank you!!

If you were planning on donating and didn't get around to it, I have a suggestion. My wonderful friend Ann, who is a cancer survivor, is on the same team as me. If you donate on her page, it'll go for the same great cause (American Cancer Society) and toward our team, but you'll also be helping a very deserving person to meet her goal.

Ann, who has a son a little younger than Chickie, found out she had cancer in her 30s when she and her husband were planning for child #2. But after the diagnosis, she immediately had surgery that left her unable to be pregnant again. However, her husband's cousin volunteered to "loan them her womb." Ann's daughter is now over a year old. Ann and her husband are genetically the parents, but the baby grew in someone else's womb. And Ann has remained cancer-free for the last few years. Pretty cool, huh?

If you'd like to honor Ann--a true survivor and overcomer--just email me at I'll send you a link to her Relay For Life page. Thanks!

Bless Ann and bless her husband's cousin. What a gift! A $10 donation seems pretty small compared to donating a womb.
