today is world cancer day.  what are you doing?

j’adore dance project dancers at jump dance convention in dc can get a free kid-size here is a heart bracelet from miss jenn michelle!

just spoke with my oncology nurse. my oncologist says he sees no change in this week’s scan from the last.

i have a pet scan at vcu massey cancer center this afternoon.   so, today’s theme song is “fingers crossed,” by allison weiss.

allison has these awesome purple “fingers crossed” bracelets for sale here with all proceeds benefitting the trevor project, the leading national organization focused on crisis and suicide prevention efforts among lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.  i suggest you snag the bargain priced 2-for-$8 value pack right now.  go on.  i’ll wait.  thanks!

now, while you’re waiting for your super cool do-gooding bracelets to arrive, why don’t you watch allison’s “fingers crossed” video?

wasn’t that totally amazing?

hey!  you can download “fingers crossed” for free right here.  why don’t you go check out the rest of allison’s sweet merch and downloads, and find out when you can catch her live in a town near you?  but not with like a net or anything.  you shouldn’t try to physically ensnare her.  just buy a ticket to her show and enjoy her performance.  sing along, clap loudly, browse the merch table (bring cash!), perhaps thank her kindly and then be on your way.

oh, right, the pet scan… i’ll start nagging for results as soon as the report is available, which is usually the following day.  i’m sure doctors love when patients do that.  and as always, i’ll let you know what i know when i know.

i’ve got my fingers crossed.  hope you do, too.

today marks the passing of one year since my stem cell transplant.

last year i spent thanksgiving in the hospital fighting for my life.  this year i celebrated at home with my family.

happy thanksgiving to you and yours.  let’s do this again next year.

and speaking of stand up to cancer, did you watch the telecast last night?  did you donate?  did you help find a cure?  did you save lives? did you stand up to cancer.  there’s still time. click here to donate or text STAND to 4020 to give $10.

in seven days stand up 2 cancer will return to primetime. on september 10, 2010, at 8pm eastern and pacific, and 7pm central the one-hour fundraising event will be simulcast live and commercial-free on abc, cbs, fox, nbc, bio, discovery health, e!, g4, hbo, hbo latino, mlb network, mun2, showtime, smithsonian channel, the style network, tv one, and vh1.  it doesn’t matter which network you choose, as long as you choose to watch.

the 2008 telecast was viewed in more than 170 countries and helped raise over $100 million.  just like the 2008 broadcast, this year’s telecast will feature live performances by legendary recording artists and presentations by stars from film, television and sports, presenting content that offers viewers insights into cancer.

su2c aims to build continuing public support and donations for cutting-edge cancer research.  100% of all donations received from the public will go directly to cancer research.  viewers will be able to donate via phone, internet or text.  it doesn’t matter how you choose to donate, as long as you donate.

in fact, you can donate directly through my stand up 2 cancer team right here, right now.  my team has raised nearly $6000.  nearly.

you can choose to make a difference today.  you can can choose to make a difference on september 10th.  i hope you’ll choose both.  but it doesn’t matter which day you choose, as long as you stand up 2 cancer.

i think the ‘time has come.  the showtime.  time to add some premium channels back to the fios faves.
