Title: Pancreatic Cancer 5k
Post by: Larissa 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.

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.
