The pet's reason for relay...

As some of you may know, the human pet has been tweeting a lot lately. The real reason behind her tweeting is because she is raising money for The American Cancer Society as she is participating in Relay for Life. She has been working very hard at it, and so far she has raised $1250.00 for the cause.

In fall of 2008, the pet's cousin, Kevin, was diagnosed with a germ-cell tumor. It was deemed cancerous, and since that moment, it has been nothing short of a roller-coaster ride of emotions for both him and the entire family. Cancer, however, has not stopped Kevin, and even in the face of such a great adversity, he is more alive than ever. May we all have the positive spirit that embraces him should we ever find ourselves asked to rise to such a challenge.

On March 27, 2009, the pet will Relay because she wants to see an end to cancer during her lifetime. Relay gives her the unique opportunity to celebrate the lives of those who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and support the American Cancer Society’s lifesaving mission by fighting back against a disease that has already taken too much.

Consider making a donation on behalf of someone who is fighting for his or her life or for someone who has lost the battle to cancer. Leave the person's name on the fundraising honor roll, and my pet will write the names of all honored on her t-shirt for the night of the event. (During the evening, the pet will take a photo and upload it onto Twitter so you can see the shirt for yourself!) Even if you cannot make a donation, spread the word via your blog, Twitter, or through email and encourage others to join the fight.

Together, let us stand up and defeat cancer once and for all so that future generations may never have to face such a terrible disease. To make a donation or to copy the link, simply click on the button below. We will be running it on the bottom of every post until the day of the event.

Oh wow another Isis I hear, and better still one who's pet is raising money for cancer research! :) You see my Mummy is sponsoring a friend's sister on her fund raising run for cancer as my Mummy's Mummy ( my Grammy), is currently battling cancer herself. I know Mummy'd run too if she could, but sadly she's defective since a hit and run accident happened about 6 or 7 yrs before I was born... Oh well she's extra good at cuddling so we love her all the same! ;)

Purrs,
Isis

Hi Zeus!

*jane waves paw exicitedly*

Glad you stopped by. And how cool is this...my Momma walks in the Relay for Life too! She's had lots of friends and family with cancer and that makes her sad. And the 27th is her birthday! She'll be...um,....about a million years old I think.

That is a wonderful cause! I think it's great that your mommy is doing something to help!

By the way -- your comment about coming out of the closet made my mom laugh very hard!

I'm sure the human pet would be absolutely ecstatic to know so many people around the country are participating in this great event! It's really awesome to see so much support for this cause. I think I'll tell her tonight... ;)

Hi Zeus, thanks for visiting us! The Relay sounds like a really good cause! Mom sez she knows too many people who have had cancer and even some that have lost the battle to it...we wish your human pet the best!
