Hello. It's been two and half years since my sister, Rhonda, was diagnosed with breast cancer--actually, two different kinds of breast cancer. I was terrified. She was unflappable (at least on the outside), charging into the fight with determination, optimism, and incredible strength. If you know her, you know exactly what I mean: she's amazing.
Even before her diagnosis, Rhonda, her partner, and our family had already been deeply involved with the fight against breast cancer. Why? For the simple reason that too many people we knew and cared about--relatives, friends, co-workers, and neighbors--had battled this disease. In one three-month period, five women in my immediate circle of friends were diagnosed with five different kinds of breast cancer. Five women. Five different kinds of cancer. Clearly, something is terribly wrong. And, just as clearly, we all need to do more about it. Will you help?
If you live in the Chicago area, I invite you to join me for "Electric Boobaloo," a benefit yoga class to be held 5:30 to 7PM on Sunday, February 26 at Evanston Athletic Club (1723 Benson Ave., Evanston). Please, join us! Your visible support is as important as your donation! If you live outside the area or have other plans on the 26th, please show your support by donating here! If you've given previously, please consider doubling that amount--or at least increasing it by some uncomfortable amount!
