American Cancer Society’s 6th Annual “Cattle Baron’s Ball” Ohio Historical Village- 8-13-2011

Wrangle For Research:

          The most important moment of the evening for this annual fundraiser held by the American Cancer Society (ACS); is this portion of the program. Wrangle For Research. This is the moment where you decide how much this issue is tugging on your heart to say, “YES, I will give above and beyond my comfort to cure cancer”.

          When a person does something from that deep deep place in their heart; it’s genuinely coming from a place where they have been touched by the subject at hand. Just like these Ladies here, Cancer has touched their lives either directly or indirectly to the point is has ignited their spirits with action, caring, and commitment to make a difference in the lives of  others.

          As a volunteer myself; I had my reasons for wanting to be there helping out for a good cause. Yes, I too have had people in my family who were lost to cancer. Not a pretty sight to see; I can tell you that. In fact, very scary.

       A few years back,  I lost an Aunt and an Uncle (brother & sister) to cancer in one months time. For a long time my Uncle suffered but my Aunt found out one day, and a month later she passed. That was really quick for her and for us too.


We’ve had a lot more people die from cancer  in our family than just those two. So it does cross my mind sometimes.

Another reason I was honored to give my time to this event was because of the inspirational awesome line up of entertainment and keynote speakers. I was on a mission to be inspired enough to rid myself of an ugly habit that has the potential to be deadly.

I don’t want to miss any Birthdays.
