Happy Birthday Mom - Relay for Life

Happy Birthday Mom!

She would have been 76 today.

She should have still been here to celebrate, but cancer took her 12 years ago.

So in her memory, I will be walking in Relay Life - the annual fund raiser for the American Cancer Society.

Please come and join me if you're in the area. I'll be there the entire time - camped out in the Redwood City Team camp. I'll probably be walking off and on during the day - but I definitely will be walking during one or more of the late night shifts.

The Luminaria Ceremony is at dusk - hundreds of luminarias will be lit and will continue to glow all night long. Every year, as I read all the messages on the luminarias - happy & sad - I remember all the people I've lost to cancer - and those who are still fighting it.

American Cancer Society – Relay for Life
May 19-20 2007 from 10am Saturday to 10am Sunday
Sequoia High School 1201 Brewster Ave Redwood City, CA 94401

We walk to raise money for research and services.

I walk in memory of Jenny who passed away last Wednesday & Gary who passed away on Sunday.

I walk in memory of Mom, Grandpa, Auntie Mako, Uncle Tosh, Irene, Emi, Dad Burns, Barbara Greene, Vicki Brown, Genie Fon, Dale Switzer and so many others.

I walk in honor of Mom Burns, Rick, Tetsuo, Ceci, Debbi, family, co-workers, and friends..

Donations of any demonination are welcome! My donation page can be found here.

I walk for Vicki, for Dr. Senn, for the boy at my church who just died, for the boy at my old church who lost after a bone marrow transfusion seemed to have gone so well...for all the ones still fighting--my grandfather, my friends...and for all the ones who don't know yet the battle that looms before them. I walk, and I FIGHT, and we will WIN someday!!!!

Our pages aren't set up yet, but I'll drop in on yours!

If I do the one here in town, June. But there's one nearer work in May, so I'm not sure--come to think of it, if we were doing the one in May, they'd SURELY be talking about it by now!! Anyway, I'm going to walk SOMEWHERE! With the church team, the work team, make my OWN team, or maybe all three!

Hugs (and matching gifts!)

Your mom was a very nice woman. I loved her rice crispy squares =)
