Take that, Cancer!

"I'm a survivor
I'm not gonna give up
I'm not gonna stop
I'm gonna work harder
Keep on surviving!"
-Destiny's Child
Do you know my friend Lori?? She's unbelievable. A true warrior. She's at war with tiny, ugly cancer cells. She's been surviving Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer for 4 years. FOUR YEARS, people!! That's some crazy shizz right there. Lori's cancer was discovered shortly after she gave birth to Hayden. That means that he formed with cancer all around him. Truly a miracle child. And you should see him.... gorgeous!!!
Anyway, Lori is a great friend to me. I love her so you should too. 
On June 6th Lori will participate in the Relay For Life. We'll be out there walking the track with her and cheering her on in the fight of her life. 
We all know someone with Cancer who will benefit from the work that the American Cancer Society does. Take a minute to look at Lori's Relay For Life page. Give money if you can. If you can't, at least read her words and then share the link with others.  Each dollar Lori raises goes straight to ACS and helps everyone we all love who is surviving with Cancer.
