One and Only Time

Faithful, Frequent, and First time readers:

I have been uncertain about posting this, because I'm not quite sure how it will be received and it's something that makes people uncomfortable...but it's important to me so here we go.
A close family friend  is currently raising money for the Avon Breast Cancer walk this summer.  Her daughter is a survivor and they are participating as a mother/daughter team (I know, isn't that just too adorable and sweet) in Colorado.  She has participated in the past with great results in raising support, however with the economy the way it currently is, she is struggling and becoming very concerned about being able to meet the $1,800 requirement.  
SO, this is where you all come in.  I have linked her webpage at the end, and if you are able and feel moved to send any amount her way, I would consider it a personal favor.  She is an amazing woman, who always gives to others and never asks for things for herself...even this is not for her, but to raise money for research to be done to help others like her daughter.  There is no amount too small, because every bit helps in these hard economic times.
Breast cancer affects so many women, and especially those in our community who are often overshadowed and underrepresented in the media.  Please, if you know of any friends or family who would like to support an amazing woman and a great cause, forward her page/or my blog to their e-mails, twitters, blogs, youtube messages, Facebook, Myspace, and whatever other technology stuff I forgot (or simply tell them on the phone if you know them like that).
Thanks in advance!
