Over the past few months we have asked our families, friends and neighbors to participate in our Walla-Pa-Looza event(s) and you did. We are humbled, gracious and excited by your efforts! We have raised over $100,000.00 in a very, very short time. We have had bands, food, beer and even cupcakes. No one had ever thought we could raise such an awareness for the disease that has effected every single one of us. The local community came out in droves to support something so new that we deemed it “our turn”. So, here comes the part where you get to tell us what made this so important to you.
As you know, we have just reached over 2,100 Facebook friends and you continue to spread the word about the guy that wanted to have a party and raise some money at the same time. Well, that guy wants to hear your story! My story begins with a grandmother (Sally Bujak) a mother-in-law (Patricia Grisco) and many others in my family that lost the battle to cancer. So, I am asking that you give us your story. We have put together this page for just that. We want you to submit your story and why the fight against cancer is important to you. If it doesn’t start in the community where does it start?
I also want stories of success. For those of you that have battled and have made it through please share with us how you made it. If it was positive thinking, prayer, exercise, support, medicine or all of the above, give the rest of us some hope. If you are embarrassed, just plug it in as an annoymus name and we will post it too. I know it has already been a tough road and I don’t want to make it any more difficult for you.
A dear friend of mine, once said, “you can’t do this alone” and this is why we are here.
