My friend Whitney wanted me to pass along some info to my vast, vast (enormous) readership. She’s got a team together for the June 4th Relay for Life, benefiting the American Cancer Society, and we want your help.

The relay is pretty neat. It runs non-stop from 6pm Friday June 4 to noon the next day, like a camp out next to McCoy Stadium in Pawtucket. They’re looking for as many people as possible to form teams of 8-15 people to take part, so this is a really good opportunity to get some friends together and help out a good cause.

There’s more information here (though you’ll have to enter the Pawtucket zip code, 02861)

If, like me, you don’t have 8-15 friends you can still support Whitney’s team with a tax deductible donation. Any amount would be really appreciated, as they say, every dollar counts. You can click the donate link to give online, or email me if you want to make other arrangements (recommended).

It seems like everyone I know has had close contact with cancer. I’ve lost two grandparents to this disease, and I know how devastating it can be to families. The work done by the American Cancer Society is so important, for researching a cure, for helping victims and their families, for lobbying Congress and everything else they do.

Thank you for anything you can do to help.
