As those few who read my short story "A Friend in Dream" may know, cancer hit my family recently. Luckily, thanks to quick detection and radical surgery, it seems they managed to get the sucker without the need for chemo. In thanks for this, she is taking part in a 3 day walk in Washington DC in October. This requires a rather large donation to have the honor of taking part. If you would like to help, her page is here.
