Greg Payette's Fundraiser:

December Fight Against Cancer

THE STORY:

That's my aunt on the left. Isn't she beautiful?

I'm sure you know someone or have lost someone to cancer. By donating to Dana-Farber, you'll help continue the fight against cancer that affects every single one of us. Young children, moms, dads, aunts, uncles...millions of people are dealing with the pain and destruction caused by cancer.

Dana-Farber provides the most ground-breaking treatment available today for adults and children with cancer. They’re continuously working to develop cures through cutting-edge research. 

Their ultimate goal is to end cancer.

If all of my friends and family donate $25, $50 or even $100 or more to Dana-Farber…MY modest goal of donating $10,000 to Dana-Farber is easy to hit.

I’ve dedicated this to my Auntie Paula, who just passed away yesterday. But donate for you, for your friends, for your family…so the great doctors, researchers and medical teams at Dana-Farber can continue doing the good work they do to stop cancer from taking away the people we love.

Here's my original message:

December,

You bring us Christmas. Santa. Snow. Bills I hate, but don’t mind paying. My kids couldn’t be more excited when you’re here.

And when you show up, I know it’s family I get to see. For most of my 43 years, you’ve been a good month.

But you’ve also taken quite a bit from me.

My grandmother, my grandfather, my young cousin, Jessica…and even my dog.

And now, you’ve taken Auntie Paula.

But don’t worry. I’ll still look forward to you each year, December. Sure, you’ve taken away people we love…but when you do that to my family, you bring us closer and somehow make us stronger. So I won’t hate you.

It’s you, cancer. You’re the one I hate.

We’re getting to know you too well. When one of my toughest aunts can’t take you down, I know it’s time to pull my family and friends together to stop you.

December, you get a pass. This time.

But not you, cancer.

You’re the one who took my aunt. 63-years young, full of life, beautiful…loved by so many people

Cancer, you’ve caused pain and killed millions of people.

Half of all men and one-third of all women will have cancer in a lifetime. But the good news is, thanks to amazing organizations like Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, cancer deaths are declining, and cancer care is improving.

Someday, there will be a cure.

But only if we all come together and help.

That’s why I’m asking my family and friends to take a few minutes to help me raise $10,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and help continue the fight against cancer using the link below:

Dana-Farber is up here in Boston, and provides the most ground-breaking treatment available today for adults and children with cancer. They’re continuously working to develop cures through cutting-edge research.

Their ultimate goal is to end cancer.

If all of my Facebook friends and family donate $25, $50 or even $100 to Dana-Farber…my modest goal of $10,000 is easy to hit.

I’ve dedicated this to my Auntie Paula, who just passed away yesterday. But donate for you, for your friends, for your family…so the great doctors, researchers and medical teams at Dana-Farber can continue doing the good work they do to stop cancer from taking away the people we love.

I hope you’ll donate. And please share this with your friends, too.

Thank you and Merry Christmas,

Greg

P.S. I chose Dana-Farber because I’m familiar with them and their exceptional work. If you’d rather donate to an organization, hospital, or cancer-related charity of your own, go ahead and do that instead. The important thing is that each of us do something to fight cancer, today.
