THE STORY:

My Story:

For my 22nd birthday I realize the only thing I would really want is something I can't have. That would be my Dad being able to see me starting my last year of college, see the shows I've been in this year and just be there at all. My Dad, Jeff Driscoll, died on February 1st, 2009 of Lung and Throat cancer he had been battling on and off since 2001. He was the most amazing Dad ever- supportive, funny, fantastic and amazing. So, instead of getting me anything for my birthday or buying me drinks or taking me to dinner: I would love if you could donate whatever you can to the American Cancer Society: The official sponsor of birthdays. :) Donate your AGE! If you are 17, donate a dollar for every bday you have had so far. If you are 59, slug out $59 bucks.

For nearly 100 years, the American Cancer Society has been working to create a world with less cancer and more birthdays. The movement for more birthdays is about everyday people, just like you and I, coming together to make a difference. This year more than 11 million cancer survivors will celebrate another birthday, thanks in part to the progress ACS has already made.

My dad died of cancer.

It's horrible. I miss him so much and think of him every day. Before he was diagnosed, I never really thought about cancer. It's not one of those subjects any of us choose to spend our time thinking about. Since he died, I've learned that every one out of every two men and one out of every three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.


That means all of us have either had cancer or known someone who has been diagnosed with cancer.

With every person who joins the movement, we can get closer to the day when cancer never steals another year from someone’s life.

Instead of getting presents this year, I'm asking everyone to donate their age. So if you're 22 then donate $22. If you're 39 then cough up $39. You get where I'm going with this.

The best thing ever would if you wanted to totally copy what I'm doing and give up your birthday and ask all your friends for a donation.
Then we have a movement.


It's super easy... just join my team and you will have your own page and you can customize it to send to all your friends.

We all know someone who is affected by cancer. Let's do it for them.

Thank you and Happy Birthday.
Paul
