Dropping Everything!!! Including my drawers!

Most of you who are regular readers of my blog know that I am a 4 yr survivor of Endometrial Cancer. For those years I have been searching for a way to bring awareness to a taboo cancer. Even celebrities who've had it don't talk about it much (Fran Drescher). Cancer of any kind is devistating but one that takes away all the bits that make you a woman is particularly emotionally damaging.
Yesterday a co-worker began to talk about a cancer fundraiser she was participating in. I immediately assumed it was for one of the more well represented cancers and kind of tuned her out. Bad me!!! I finally asked what cancer it supported and was shocked yet thrilled to find out it was for cancers below the waist. I immediately announced I wanted in and was invited to join their team,
Saving 3rd Base . We'll be running through the streets of Calgary in our UNDERWEAR!! No, not really. Actually we will be costumed in a pair of fushia and black striped boy shorts, White with black striped, thigh high, socks, and white and black baseball T's that say Saving 3rd Base. Can you picture it? LOL!! Anyway, I'm looking for support boys and girls!!!! Donations will be more than appreciated! I can't do this on my own and besides what could be funnier than me and my prow of a ship physique running in that get-up? I may even wear a pink wig just to top it off.

When is this?

So proud of you! Have a great time.

Also, I went to the site and couldn't figure out how to donate...your name didn't come up as a team member...maybe you haven't registered yet. Anyway, let us know what to do and how.

Can I post this on a public LDS bulletin board that I regularly post on?
