Raisng money, one razor stroke at a time...

No, I'm not shaving my head... but someone else is. Nate over at Confessions of a CF Husband is attempting to raise $3,000 in one week for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If he succeeds, he is going to shave his head live on the Internet. While I don't have a particular desire to watch someone shave his head, it is a very worthy cause, and also one that hits close to home for him--his wife Tricia (who has Cystic Fibrosis, hence the name of the blog) has recently been diagnosed with Post-Transplant Lymphoma following a lung transplant (that was necessary due to her CF). If, by the way, you haven't checked out this blog before, this is only the tip of the ice burg for this family--you really have to read their blog to get the full understanding of all they have been through.

Anyway, I would really like to support Nate and his baldness-for-a-cause. :-) If you are interested in participating, check out his post about it.

Have a great weekend!

Nate, Tricia, and Gwyneth are some of my faves too. Their story is amazing. I just wanted to say that your story about your husband and the sanitary napkins was hi-stinkin'-larious! Wouldn't want to go wiping my mouth on that! Men and Listening - in one ear and out the other. Thanks for stopping by Pocket Change!

How sweet of you to post this on your blog for them. I will have to go check them out....I hope they met their goal over the weekend!

Thanks for the insight to the DVD player in the car. I do have a portable one so that would definitely work when he's a little older (right now I thinkhe would break it).

Thanks for stopping by yesterday!
