On my fourth anniversary of diagnosis of advanced melanoma skin cancer (which is this week), I am reflecting on my experience, and that of those around me. Above all, I am grateful for all of the support I have received, and I am motivated to carry forward that feeling. That is why I do what I do, in working for Save Your Skin Foundation.
I have told you lots about Save Your Skin and how they have helped me - just check the label to the right of this blog. I have also told Save Your Skin lots about how you have helped me... my family and friends in Ontario, who really floated this boat in those couple years where the water was extremely rough.
I love you both, and my girls love you both. And now, by some bizarre miracle, I have the chance to connect you - my family and friends, with my Save Your Skin family and friends. May 10, in melanoma awareness month, in Toronto, we are having a party. :-) A big, kickass party.
If there is any way you may be interested in helping to support this event (that I am seriously devoted to) (for many reasons that I have already explained on this blog) (many times), I would love it. Claire and Cass would love it, my co-workers would love it, and all of the patients we represent would love it.
Tickets include delicious catering, yummy cocktails, a super fun night with a silent auction and entertainment, lots of hugs, and a sprinkling of updates on how awesome it is to be sun safe and melanoma patient supportive. We're even launching a big project we've been working on, a lovely video of some patient friends who represent the work we do at Save Your Skin Foundation.
Here is the link to the Eventbrite information page, for more details or to buy tickets:
If you can't make it, I understand, but if there is anything you can or want to do to support the event, and you know I never ask for donations.. but if you wish to, you could do so here:
