Fighting the Fight . . . with My Credit Card

Cancer has touched my life in several ways in the last year.  I’ve lost two family members, and a third was diagnosed and is fighting multiple myeloma.  It’s depressing to think about, and I worry about it.  I worry about my family.    I’ve got a strong connection to my family, I think, and I always want the best for them.  I think the feeling is mutual.   They are all just about the most important thing I have in the world.

The simple fact is, though, that there is not much I can do.   But I have to do something.  So this afternoon, I busted out the credit card for a good cause.

Today, I sponsored my cousins in The American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

And while I was at it, I also sponsored my friend Hill for the AIDS/LifeCycle.

So if you’re feeling gifty . . .

And if you’re really broke, maybe there’s something you can donate that’s free.  I started a few months ago by donating my hair to Locks of Love.

Just sayin’.

    I can’t think of anything better to use a credit card for!
