You all know I'm not a fan of the Komen Marketeers, but I do believe that the American Cancer Society does good work - I have personally benefited from their outreach. So, I want to let you know about a Relay for Life happening Saturday, August 6th, 2011 in Sacramento.
I was invited to the Survivors breakfast but, um, you know - it's breakfast. 8:00 a.m. I'd rather sleep. Sleep helps me survive, although survival with me is kind of iffy right now.
Plus, they said Survivors will take a Victory lap, which means I would have to run or walk around a track, which I haven't done since I grew breasts, and even though I'm missing one, nothing has changed.
Not to mention I am still waiting on the "victory."
There is a Luminaria ceremony at 9:00 pm, which sounds lovely, but again, it's something that is not within my personal timezone. Being stage IV means you have a small window of energy and my work life uses it all. I might show up mid-day though, just to see what's going on. If you see me, say hi. I will be the one not wearing pink.
The event will be held at Mira Loma High School; if you want to race, pre-registration is here, or show up and register on site.
If you want to donate, it's not too late.
If you have questions, contact Daylene Perry at 916-807-5974.
In October, there will be another race, and I'm planning for there to be a team "But Doctor I Hate Pink." I have a friend who will be in charge, in case I'm recovering from surgery. More information to come but start saving your pennies.
