I have made my first post. Lets continue the awareness! We have power in numbers.

Prizes are just a bonus, but I'd love the 50.00 AMEX card. I don't have children, so please make sure some nice family gets any prize for babies our children.

cdziuba said...

I don't blog, but I have told many about this cause!

suburban prep said...

My sister had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and went through 6 months of chemo. She was told that it looked like she was clean when chemo was over but it came back stronger. She had full body radiation and a bone marrow transplant on 8/28/2001. So far so good but she must check in with her doc every six months.

Susan said...

Great cause! I've emailed 5 friends and I would like the American Express Gift Card. Thanks for the contest.

keeth said...

A great contest for a good cause

Lymphomia touches everyone. There is no age that is not affected. You see My Son was diagnosed with Non-hodkins in January 08, he has one more chemo and hopefully will be in remission. God Bless

Jen Singer said...

I don't want a prize. I just want to say thank you for bringing attention to blood cancers. I'm a non Hodgkin's lymphoma survivor, but many folks assumed that a 40-something mom like me must have had breast cancer. It's time we shed the light on blood cancers, which are rapidly increasing.

I joined your blogging efforts here: http://mommasaid.net/howsjen.aspx
Thanks!
