Day 307: Free Wheelchair Mission
Thanks to everyone who contributed to my birthday fundraiser for LiveSTRONG on Crowdrise, it’s a cause near to me. I have been a social cigarette smoker since college, last year I had quit for 15 weeks, then I had a little relapse, but it’s now been 8 weeks since I last smoked a cigarette. I am firmly committed to quitting smoking for good. The real eye opener for me was losing my uncle to lung cancer on Dec 21st, it was very difficult for me to see him in a hospital bed. Every time I am offered a cigarette or feel the slightest urge to smoke, I think of my uncle Pete and politely say no. We miss you, uncle Pete.
Today’s give goes out to Allison D. because we both think donating your birthday to charity is cool. Her birthday is today and she is donating hers to Free Wheelchair Mission, a great organization providing mobility to those in need. Happy Birthday, Allison!
