We came up with the "on the pole" idea because supposedly, a lot of people pay for college "on the pole." After we came up with that, we had the whole room giggling and involved.
Most touchingly, one husband came back and thanked me after his wife had finished her chemo, saying that our silly event had made his day and made his wife's first terrifying chemo experience a fun one.
That right there was worth a thousand dollars.
Here is the result:
All money is to go to my son's college fund, and the race is very close. I need every vote I can get! Please go here http://www.healthline.com/health/best-health-blogs-contest and vote for ButDoctorIHatePink. Please show them how strong the breast cancer community is, and please help support my son in his quest to go to college.
You can vote from either facebook or twitter, and your twitter account must have a photo attached to it and you must be following people. They disqualified over 70 twitter votes because there was no photo with the account, even though I know the people who own them. I understand that they want real accounts and not "fake" ones, but they don't seem to have an appeals process, so be careful! They will NOT use your information for anything but posting that you voted, and if you use facebook, you can vote and then click the X to stop it from going on your wall. So, there is no reason not to vote.
You can vote once a day and the contest ends February 15th.
Thank you! We had fun doing this short little snippet, and I am very grateful for everybody who votes. If I win, maybe I can get the entire infusion room to say "Thank you!" Maybe the nurses will participate! (Hear that girls?)
