I have just personally put several months of my time and energy into a cause that has touched me and my family. all I want is to be able to do something, anything to help. American Cancer Society's Relay for Life of Monrovia was this past weekend 8/16-17, and the months, days, hours of planning before were just exhausting. Worth every moment, but exhausting.
There are so many causes that touch so many people and I thought choosing a cancer organization was the best idea. With family and friends battling...and more battling every day....it seemed the only choice. Every person, EVERY PERSON has been touched by cancer in someway. However that doesn't make the causes out there, that have touched fewer in numbers any less important.
Find a cause. Any cause will do. If you can't help by donating money, then help by raising awareness. Do what you can do. If you help raise awareness, if you help educate, then in some way money will come. You will touches someone who can make a difference with their donations and in your own way YOU made that happen.
So find a cause...Cancer...Depression...ALS...HIVAids...M.S....MDA....Fibromyalgia. The list goes on and on. Without education, there is no awareness. Without awareness there is no research. With no research there is no cure.
