Just got back from Relay 4 Life, a cancer organization that raises funds by holding huge events outdoors that last 18 hours. There are booths, karaoke, bingo, talent shows and even a drag queen pagaent for middle school and high school guys allowing plenty of people to get a laugh at the hairy pits plus stuffed bras in pink spandex spaghetti staps and dresses. They all walk around and collect money (actually, most of them were really hot ;D) and the pagaent was dubbed "MIss Relay". I spent an unbelievable amount of money spinning wheels to win prizes, italian ice, and performing on their postage-stamp of a stage. I guess the performing had to be the best part - everyone did amazing and the spirit was incredible. I stayed up straight thru the night, not because I was forcing myself to, but I wasn't tired. Just kept jogging laps around the track as my friend and her realtives slept in the tent. I was surprised at how many of the average people I knew, such as parents of friends, teachers, staff, etc., were cancer survivors. I was impressed and my heart swelled with pride. Anyway, my point was supposed to be, before I got carried away, that although there are no surefire cures for cancer, there are plenty of things you can do for yourself to allow you to live life to the fullest without the interruption of this devastating disease. For example - GET SCREENED! Do whatever it takes to have it done - fight the insurance companies, because they are worse than ever right now! The rest of those cancer-preventing actions you've already heard of since elementary school, so I won't bother explaining those. Bottom line: get involved, be prepared by getting screened and knowing your family's medical history, help others who are struggling, and takes all those other simple steps for yourself. Spread the news. Pass it on.
