Help me help a great cause!

The Mrs and I have done the Komen Race For the Cure many times in the past in support of friends and family affected by the tragedy of breast cancer.   This year the importance got kicked up another notch, with my Mom spending the last 5 months fighting a grueling battle with breast cancer herself.  She’s a fighter and is on the road back to normal, but its been new challenges for her and the rest of the family we could have done without.

In addition to our normal race day contributions, I’ve also set up a donation page in tribute of Mom:

Joan Crowther

Joan Crowther Komen Tribute

Its a tough time for anybody to donate right now.  Please be as generous as you can.  Even small donations help research that may help someone you love not have to suffer the same challenge in the future.
