Help Fight Cancer, Join the Army of Bloggers

Cancer is no respecter of race, religion, social status, income or profession. It is an insidious disease that robs people of a quality of life and too often, of life itself. This blog has one purpose, and one purpose only, to enroll as many bloggers in An Army Of Bloggers as possible and to encourage them to make an annual contribution to fighting cancer. The Rules for membership are simple, put the logo and blogroll on your blog, send a donation to a cancer program of any kind and post about it. It would be helpful if you write in the "memo field" of your check the following "Donated By The Army Of Bloggers." Help spread the word, help beat this s.o.b. into the ground. If you are a blogger, join the blogroll and make a donation. Leave a comment too if you would be so kind as to whom you donated to. Please leave the address and name of the charity in your comment (you don't need to name the amount). Please, if everyone helps this disease can eventually be whipped.

This Blog and accompanying Blogroll is dedicated Pamela Roper Clark, my beloved sister who passed away in 1990 from ovarian cancer. By putting the power of the blogosphere to work, we hope to make a citizens push to conquer this dread disease.

The rules for membership are simple:
  • Add the code to your blogroll.

  • Make a post on your blog supporting research to cure cancer and to announce your membership in this worthy fight.

  • Make a comment on this post giving the cancer research or charity you will support annually. The amount of your gift is entirely up to you, but the more you can afford, the better it will be.

  • Non bloggers can particpate too by making a comment and listing the cancer research facility/organization or charity you will support annually.

  • Here are some suggested research organizations and charities: National Cancer Institute, The Lung Cancer Alliance, The Cancer Research Institute, The American Cancer Society, Cancer Research and Prevention Foundation of America/Cancer Research Foundation of America. Or, your favorite what ever it is.
