Pancreatic Cancer 5k
« on: October 16, 2013, 11:33:11 PM »
A master of the face painting world, Brian Wolfe, died of pancreatic cancer yesterday, leaving a terrific twin brother and fellow face painter, a wife, a daughter, and loads more friends and family. On November 10, I'm joining Team Brian in the 5K run/walk PurpleStride NJ. If you'd like to help, please use this link to donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network: http://purplestride.kintera.org/newjersey/larissaesq

Will do this weekend. My Mom died from this too almost 10 years ago.

Sorry for the loss of this awesome person.
If I had a little more $ I'd love to help you out, but..........................

Trust me, I get it.  I just put it out there to get as much help as possible for the cause, but certainly don't take offense when people can't or don't choose to give.  I understand the starving artist thing, for sure.  But even if you had a ton of money, everyone's got their preferred causes, and they're perfectly entitled to stick with those and not fund mine.

I am so sorry that things are too tight to help out.  My aunt died of pancreatic cancer nearly 10 years ago.  All cancer sucks, but it is particularly deadly.
