Miss Stephanie still aint buyin what hairys celln…

IowaHarleyGirl As you may remember from my previous posts about “The Many Thoughts of Harley Girl” Stephanie Maier, is planning a little “Hairy Cell” butt-kicking on October 9th in West Des Moines, Iowa, by participating in a fund-raiser sponsored by the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Here is the webpage to get all the information about how you can show this amazing woman a little support in her quest to beat this monster blood cancer. No donation is too small, ever! When coupled with others, it turns into a means to ” fund lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life”.  


I don’t want anyone to ever go through any event that is life altering by feeling alone. It is our social networking sites that allow us to go through these times with the arms of people from all across the country, around us and offering comfort.   

I admire this woman for her courage in simply sharing her story and so, we can say “thank you” and offer our support by showing her that we are behind her, even though we wont actually experience the event. From any place in the world, we can be a part of Stephanie’s fight against this “Hairy” beast. Let’s show her what the spirit of community means by helping her in her battle.  
 
 

 

  

Also, take a moment to wish her well on Twitter at Iowa Harley Girl. GO, STEPH!! 
Lady Godiva on wheels, being Stephanie’s little cheerleader!!
