I'm Walking. Are You Donating? Please?

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 14.472% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

As a reminder, I’m doing a charity walk this Sunday to help my goddaughter Rebecca and all kids with cancer.  I will be wearing a purple cape because her favorite color is purple.  So if you have a few bucks to donate, that would be nice of you.  If not, I’ll take prayers.
In a clarification that bothers me, technically speaking Rebecca is not our goddaughter.  Rebecca is Jewish, and as such the Meyer family doesn’t have a tradition of godparents.  But we’re basically the ones who are on-deck for so many issues, and so dear to our heart, that we call Rebecca (and Carolyn, and Joshua) our um-children, because really there’s no tradition of Godparents per se but dammit, they’re something significantly above “our friends’ kids.”  And so when we were blogging during the initial crisis, we didn’t want to have to explain that shorthand seventy times a day.
Anyway.  Rebecca is ill.  Her proton therapy and chemo is going as well as can be expected – she has not been robbed of notable brain function yet – but she could still use your help.  So if you’ve got a few spare bucks and don’t mind donating, here is the link.  (And I’ve tried to thank everyone who’s donated to me personally, but if I missed you, please contact me for my personal “You are damned wonderful” comment.  Seriously.  You deserve it.)

    I’m sorry to hear about your godchild, ferret. It seems like you are handling the situation as best as you can. I’m sure rebecca apreciates you just being there for her, as well. The holy father and I have not been on speaking terms for some years, but I wish her health and wellness.
    Alas, my current net worth is approximately $0.75 cents, ferret. I do not have any money to spend, and am currently living off of the good will and infinite patience of my parents. In spite of that, I shall continue to follow the story.

      If you do not have money to spend, then please, keep yourself safe. Giving is good when you can, but never beat yourself up for taking care of yourself.
