Relay for Life


This saturday is Relay for Life at Cornell! I will be walking all night long with my sorority sisters and the rest of the Cornell community to raise money for the American Cancer Society. This is always such a wonderful event, as it gives the chance to really be mindful about everyone we know who is living with cancer or has been touched by it. We light luminarias in loving memory of friends and relatives. My dear grandmother died of cancer in 2000, and so many others I have known as well, so this cause is very near to my heart. CancerSucks, I will be walking for you also. I think the event sends a message of great hope, for with every Relay for Life we are getting closer to finding a cure for this awful disease. I feel proud because this year I personally raised the most money I've ever raised before, and I hope it will do some good. If you have a loved one whom you would like me to keep in my thoughts while I'm walking, please let me know and I would be happy to light a luminaria for them. xoxo

I am doing the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in DC in May - it is such a fantastic cause to support.

I am so excited about our swap - I will probably be sending your gifts out soon! Hope you like pink, green, and Lilly...
