Laugh, and the world laughs with you.
Cry, and you find yourself all alone in your room.
What? Is that only at my house?
Humor is the lubricant of life. It eases our way through tight situations, keeps the friction from getting so hot that it causes permanent damage and generally allows for smoother interaction between all the parts that make up our hectic lives.
Humor, it can be said, is a miracle fix-all.
Toward that end, Young Survival Coalition and Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) are combining their significant resources and those of ABC, NBC and CBS to air a fund raiser on Friday, September 5, 2008. Money will go toward all the cutting edge research we read about in the news. Research the government doesn’t want to fund. Research that will save lives.
We are so close to a cure for cancer. So close. Close enough to a cure that our children may not ever have to worry about dying from over-producing, vagrant cells that overtake healthy cells and kill them. Close enough that many cancers are already considered “chronic diseases” instead of terminal.
Close enough that even the little bit of money that I am able to spare can help the cause.
Won’t you please help, too?
Mark your calendars. Program your TiVo or DVR. 8:00 p.m., Friday, September 5, 2008. Help laugh cancer into submission!!!
