2010 Year of the Lung - Donation request

I couldn't believe it today when Amy told me that
2010 is the year of the lung.

Excerpt from the Australian Lung Foundation -

Together, we can create awareness
Together, we can provide understanding and support
Together, we can make a difference!

In Memoriam is one way in which you can contribute to our fundraising efforts of The Australian Lung Foundation and we invite you to take this journey with us, working together to develop programs that will assist patients with lung disease, their families and carers and our community.

I have created a link to 'DONATE' via paypal on my sidebar....

What I wish for, is to make an in 'memoriam' donation to the Australian Lung Foundation, and dedicate the donation to my Mum. My donation alone however, will not make much of any impact, so thought I would ask if anyone would like to assist this very worthy cause.

Your donation will help:

  • - promote lung health;

  • - raise awareness of the impact and symptoms of lung disease;

  • - promote targeted screening and early diagnosis;

  • - provide advocacy, education and support for all those affected by lung disease; and

  • - sponsor medical and scientific research into lung disease.

Along with the donation, this year we as a family are also committing to
This is an annual event, to support and remember, Cancer Survivors, Cancer sufferers, carers and those loved ones who have passed away from cancer. This event is a fundraiser to also raise funds for the Cancer Research & more.

We will be setting up our 'team' very soon, and I will post more about the event & sponsorship etc at a later date. If you click the link above you can learn more about this wonderful event.

If you would like to share the love, please feel free to link to this post.

Here's a pic of the booklet Bec made for Mum's celebration of life (funeral service) I miss her incredibly!!

From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for all your support and kindness over the last couple of months. I am hoping that 2010 brings everyone happiness, good health & peace.
