…to promote a cause and raise money while simultaneously challenging the last shred of my self-esteem in the waning weeks of my pregnancy are pretty great.
So, in the spirit of the cause and in an effort to bring awareness and hopefully raise more money, I’m sharing the video of me promoting, with the help of Tina Buck who lost her young daughter to a brain tumor, the 12th Annual Race for Research on Atlanta’s NBC 11Alive “Atlanta and Company”.
Please be kind to me. I have a mere 47 days left in my pregnancy and to say that I am slightly self-conscious of my appearance would be an understatement. I believe it is a well-known fact that TV does add puff and Orca whale characteristics. Oh. Yes. It. Does! Please… don’t argue with me.
Aside from the above disclosure about myself, in all seriousness, this is a very important cause that’s very important not only our family, but to thousands of others today and countless more tomorrow who will discover they are on this journey as well.
The 12th Annual Race for Research is quickly approaching on July 23, 2011 here in Atlanta at Atlantic Station in Midtown. While supporting brain tumor research may not be your charity of choice, I challenge you to consider a donation and invite you to watch the video, learn more about the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children and the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation, the critical medical research we fund and consider the impact even $1 can have.
Every dollar adds up and every dollar does make an impact. At some point there will be that one dollar that will fund the cure for this insidious disease and cancer which ultimately means families like mine, facing this diagnosis, will no longer carry the burden we do.
