1 in 8 on 1/8

By Laurie | January 8, 2010

Help me reach my goal for the Susan G. Komen Dallas/Fort Worth 3-Day for the Cure!
Did you know it’s my birthday? It is! Happy Birthday to me! What do you get the girl who has everything? Today is the perfect day to make a donation to my Susan G. Komen 60 Mile walk if you haven’t already or have been meaning to. Not only are you helping me celebrate my birthday while getting me precious dollars closer to my fundraising requirement, but you are making a donation to a great cause and charity. I love gifts. I do. This is one of the best gifts you can give me. Does your company match your donations? Even better!

Did you know 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in her lifetime? That is such a scary statistic. This 1/8 (my birthday, ahem!) make a donation to help find a cure. I will love you and my boobies will love you too!

Psst… did I mention I am walking 60 miles, sleeping on the ground in less than 30 degree weather in a tent, showering in a truck, and peeing in a port-o-potty? You know you want to support that! Pretty please? With a cherry on top?

  3. Good for you! What a worthy cause to sweat for, and pee in port-o-potty’s! I found your link at Blogher.com under DFW bloggers! Just wanted to stop by and say hello to a fellow Texas blogger! I’m your newest follower:)

  4. Just found your blog (and became a follower!), and I love it!. This is such a great birthday sentiment. I just wrote a post about a friend’s cancer, and I’m still kind of processing everything it made me feel.

    Happy late birthday, and best of luck with the walk!
