    2018 Relay for Life

    The saying "everyone has been touched by cancer" became very real for me over the last 12 months. Last January, my mother was diagnosed with uterine cancer. It was a very difficult time for especially her, but the rest of our family as well. Fortunately, she got a clean bill of health a few weeks ago and is still coming back from her treatments, but is starting to feel like herself again.

    Along with mom, @gametime is still battling with his wife to this day. He is one of the very first people I met on BGP and I've always considered him a good friend for how he took me "under his wing" in my early years here. I've spent time with both him and his wife, so I consider their battle mine as well.

    For these reasons, I am participating in Relay for Life this June. I find it incredibly frustrating that we haven't defeated this disease yet, but I want to do my part in trying to get there. The link below is to my Relay page. Please give if you're able, any and all donations would be greatly appreciated!

    I would like to give a special thanks to those BGP members who have so generously given to this fundraiser, I appreciate it more than you know!!

    I have exceeded my original goal of $600, but with the latest push of donations, I want to shoot for $1,000 as my end goal (Only $240 to go!). Give if you can, or share the link in the first post.

    Thanks!
