Pink for Cancer

Last year at this time Steve dyed his hair pink to raise money for Cancer. He really inspired me and I said that next year I wanted to do it. I kinda forgot about it and then was putting it off getting cold feet but a friend at my office encouraged me and convinced me to do it. We set up a team (Steve-O and Bri vs cancer) and decided to dye our hair pink. Until last week I was just just raising money because it was a good thing to do for a very worthy cause. Now, after news I received earlier this week, cancer has hit very close to home. I know all the money raised goes to programs that focus on Children but I am personally doing this for someone close to me.
Below is the standard e-mail that will direct you to the webpage where you can donate if you so choose.

I am a registered participant in the Hair Massacure® 2011 which will take place on February 11, 2011. All funds raised from this event will be split between the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation® (Pediatric Oncology), Make-A-Wish® Northern Alberta and the Ronald McDonald House ® of Northern Alberta. My goal is to raise funds through pledges and any donations over $25 will receive a receipt for tax purposes.
