I beg, in honor of my father.

It is not often that I beg... but for this cause, I will.

You may remember that early this summer, my father passed away. He had been suffering from lung cancer, which happens to be the top cancer killer in the US (regardless of gender or ethnicity). Lung cancer kills almost twice as many women as breast cancer, and more than twice as many men as prostate cancer... and I know from first hand experience that it is a painful, horrible death.

 November 5th, I am walking for the Lungevity Foundation whose mission is to have a meaningful and immediate impact on improving lung cancer survival rates, ensure a higher quality of life for lung cancer patients, and provide a community for those impacted by lung cancer. In order to accomplish their mission, LUNGevity funds the most promising research into the early detection and successful treatment of lung cancer. You can support me in one of three ways.

• Simply donate cash money on my event page. (Click the yellow 'Donate' button under my fathers photo.)

• If you want a little more bang for your buck- I will donate 10% of all of my Etsy photo block sales to my walk as long as you enter the code "LUNGEVITY" at the Etsy checkout. That code will also give you 10% off your entire order.

•  Also, I have designed a set of blocks specifically for the Lungevity walk:

$10 from each set of these blocks will go directly to my walk as well. (And they only cost you $15!) I can design these blocks with your own photos and you can gift them to a friend or family member in need of hope...

"Hope is not a dream but a way of making dreams become reality."

What I hope is that all of my friends, family, blog readers and subscribers will help me honor my father and donate even $1 to this great cause. I know that times are tough. I have over 700 blog readers and subscribers, and if they could all donate $1, I would reach my $1000 goal.

Thank you very much for any help you may provide... karma is smiling at you.
