If you got it...gimmi some lovin'

Hi Bloggy friends...
For me to sit here and tell you all the reasons I do this,
and have been for the past 13 years,
would take far too much time.
So I will just give you the basics...
I myself have had 2 "issues" with breast cancer.
Thankfully it was caught early enough and I have 2 healthy,
yet lumpy and kinda Frankinstienish, boobies today.
Which kinda works in my favor cause I can flaunt them for extra donations if needed
*wink wink*
Sadly, several of my friends and family have not been so lucky.
I lost my father, uncle, grandmother, grandfather
& a few best friends to this f'ed up disease.
My mother is currently battling a unique form of thyroid cancer.
It breaks my heart to see the people I love
go through what cancer puts folks through.
So I am asking each of you to help me raise some cash
for a worth wild cause,
one that is indeed close to my heart for so many reasons...
You will also be getting updates on the committee my friends and I run at the Relay...
Huge shout out and thank you to Ryan, Rosa and Marybeth
who I sucker into this committee year after year!
We run what we call the Baby Barnyard Basket Bonanza
Ok, it's basically a huge basket raffle in the baby barnyard at the
Franklin County Fairgrounds the weekend of Relay
- but we are not allowed to call it a "raffle" -
so we jazzed up the name - made is divaliscious like us!
Thank you so very much in advance for your donation!
