Real Men Wear Pink! Male
Default Real Men Wear Pink!

Hi everyone, I'd love to steal just a few minutes of your time. The world lost a truly great person just a couple days after this last Christmas. She was an incredible person with a radiant soul. A wife to 1, and mother to 1 son, friend to all that she ever met. Unfortunately she lost what was ultimately a 2 year battle with breast cancer. There are a ton of outstanding breast cancer charities, and I'd be hard pressed to find someone that hasn't in some way donated to 1, whether it was recently, or in years passed. I've chosen to join the Real Men Wear Pink charity, a breast cancer specific, month long event, started by the American Cancer Society. I would truly appreciate any help whatsoever in the fight against breast cancer. I'd like to ask, that on the 10th day, of the 10th month in the year, nearly 10 months exactly after our friend Leanna passed away, that you donate as little as $10. If you can, or want to donate more.......OF COURSE, please feel free to do so. I'm going to add a twist, and surprise an individual, orchid board donor, with a $30 gift certificate to Sunset Valley Orchids. For every $10 you donate, you will get a ticket into the raffle drawing. Just make sure and add "OB" before, or after your name on the donation page, maybe send me a PM, or even announce it in this thread, so I can keep track! Thank you all for your time, be safe, and have a great day,

With much respect,

Marc Charder

Echoing Bob's post, I also encourage folks to give, give, give.

It is estimated that one in three will get some sort of cancer in our lifetimes, so every dollar counts.

I am now a 10-year survivor of metastatic malignant melanoma - not brought on by sun exposure - so am a big supporter of cancer research. I was lucky in the fact that UPENN in Philly is the epicenter of melanoma research and knowledge; but most are not so lucky.

Give, give, give!
