Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Greg Hammonds, whose wife died of breast cancer, is hosting a comment fundraiser. For every comment made, he or one of the other sponsor's will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation's National Breast Cancer Foundationís programs for education and low-cost or free mammograms for low-income women.

I'm comment 245. Let's help get this number way over 500!

Thanks to Rae, for pointing this out to me. Posting in honor of Vickie and Jill who are currently fighting cancer.

Update: Woohoo! While they're still verifying all the comments, it looks like nearly 700 comments were made for the fundraiser. Still waiting to see the total amount raised.

Update, 1/17: Nearly $3,000 was raised for breast cancer screening for low income women! Thanks to all who participated. And, the Hammonds are gearing up for another comment-a-thon on April 1st, the first anniversary of Greg missing his wife.
