***this is a reposting from about 3 weeks ago. I am reposting as it's as worthy a cause as I can think of. If you can, donate. If you can't donate, volunteer to help somewhere, somehow. ***
I won't often make a posting like this, but there are things worth discussing bigger than baseball.
The following is from my wife. If you can contribute anything to this worthwhile cause, I thank you. Cancer patients thank you. Families of cancer patients, victims and survivors thank you.
Hope Starts With Me!If you are uncomfortable with donating online, checks made out to the American Cancer Society can be mailed (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get you an address to mail a check).
For those of you who don't know, I recently became the Director of Patient and Family Services for the American Cancer Society's Westchester Region. I am truly honored to have taken on this role and strive to help as many cancer patients over the next several years as I can.
Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing breast cancer. However, there is still much work to be done to find promising new treatments, increase awareness about the importance of mammograms, help all women get access to screenings and care, and connect those impacted by the disease. We need to provide these women with the information, day-to-day help, and emotional support they need to wage their battle against breast cancer. I believe that hope for a world without breast cancer starts with me. Last year, I set a fundraising goal of $2,500 and nearly doubled that goal, raising over $4,500 to become one of the top 25 Pacesetters for Westchester County.
I hope you will join me in my efforts by signing up to join my team or making a donation in support of my participation.

Again, any donation is appreciated. From $5 to whatever you feel comfortable in donating. Just know it all goes to help fight cancer. My wife works for American Cancer Society which, as if it weren't already true, makes her a far better person than me.
If you have any questions, please ask.
Thanks again for allowing me to post this in support of the American Cancer Society and their Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.
