I have a special request for anyone that happens to come across this blog today or tomorrow or whenever. Please go here and make a donation to help St. Jude. Make a donation in honor of someone you know that has survived cancer. Make a donation for someone you know that has not survived cancer or someone who's children or family have been affected by it. Or make one in honor of the healthy children or grandchildren you have.

This radio station in Memphis does this Radiothon once a year to raise money and I thought that maybe I could help them out just a little by providing this link and asking for your help. If you want to learn more about St. Jude and what they do go here and read all about them. Keep in mind that is cost $1,000,000 a DAY just to keep the doors open and no child is ever told they cannot receive treatment because their family cannot pay.

You never know if it could be you or someone you know that has to walk through those doors next. Wouldn't you like to be sure that they are still open?

Also, you don't have to ask me to add me to your blogroll. If you wanna add me, I'm all for it. :)

This summer when they did the marathon, I was pregnant. And for the first time, I called and bought a Dream Home ticket. It takes on a whole new meaning now!

I've been donating to St. Jude's for years. A school teacher buddy of mine had a niece go there. She is fine and dandy today.

St Jude is a fantastic cause. I love the fact they treat people no matter what, they don't put a price of the amt of insurance on anyone, that to me is genuine caring that's for sure.
That is the one place I donate to and know my money is actually helping someone.
