For now, I want to post my comments from my Facebook page and I’ll be back later to add more. Please visit their sites and support these wonderful causes if you can. I quit buying bottled water and use the money that I would have spent to donate to these folks. I now carry an aluminum container and just think of all the space I’m saving at the landfills!
Just imagine how much of our money is spent on frivolous things each day when we could just share some of our blessings with these worthy causes. When I say “frivolous”, I refer to those things compared to life threatening diseases and illnesses that even people in our area are fighting. It could be you or someone in your family.

Wow, I found this cool comment on my wall this morning from Scott Kruse and am sharing it with you all so you can go to my website home page (www.hats4ewe.com) , scroll down a bit and click on www.18forelife.com and read what an amazing man from Dexter (and supporters) have been doing to honor his brother, Ben and help countless area individuals who are recovering from or being treated for cancer. They also have donated thousands of $$$ (I think like $26,000.00) to St. Jude’s and also supported me by donating to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (twice) for my half marathons in Orlando and San Francisco. I look forward to many years of involvement with these amazing and gifted people from right here in our area! You can even sign up for the newsletter from 18ForeLife!
“We want to let you know about a great friend of 18 Fore Life, Sheri Farmer. Sheri is passionate about making scrub hats and caps and sells them online. She’s also passionate about giving back. Whenever Sheri hears about someone undergoing chemotherapy and losing their hair, she’ll make a hat for them, free of charge! Please share if you know anyone that might be interested in purchasing Sheri’s products. Sheri also has certain hats in her eBay store that she gives 50% or more of the proceeds from the sell of those hats to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Please support Sheri!”
Now Brandon Scott!
I’ve known this little guy for many years. He is a survivor and champion and was my Honored Team-mate for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society back in 2004 when I did the San Francisco first women’s Nike marathon. He has the best heart and mommy I have ever seen and is always finding ways to help other children who are ill. If you can help him a little bit, he would be so thankful. Every one of us is just a blink away from needing St. Jude’s for a loved one or friend.
