THE STORY:

Hi Everyone! As a birthday gift to myself, I am officially launching my third annual fundraiser for appendiceal cancer research at MD Anderson Cancer Center. This year's run will take place on December 10th in Kiawah Island, South Carolina--- my family's "happy place" :-) As many of you know by now, the research being done at MD Anderson and elsewhere to combat appendiceal cancer has benefited my family immensely. Donations to this team (which is arguably the nation's leader in this field) is so important because appendiceal cancer is rare and does not grab much attention but progress is happening RIGHT NOW! Even with diminished donations, the last decade has made once terminal cases into treatable and curable cases. My family knows this first-hand. So.....if you had any inkling to buy me a birthday card or do a good deed today, please instead take that money and momentum and donate just a little bit. I have not set a goal in terms of amount---I will be sincerely grateful for every dollar. You all have been beyond generous in the past.
