This is a message from Stephanie Culton, one of my very best friends in the whole wide world. She and my hubby and I just spent a celebration weekend in Tahoe together, and when she got back, this is what she did, and here's her message...
Dear Friends and Family,
I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support the San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure in its efforts to fund breast cancer screening, treatment, education and support programs, as well as Komen's national research grants program. I will also take part in the 2010 Race for the Cure on Sunday, September 26 as part of this program.
As many of you already know, my dear friend Monique Griffith was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I have started a team in her honor which you are also welcomed to join to show your support! You can access team information at the donation link below. You can read more about Monique and her personal journey with breast cancer at: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/moniquegriffith
Please help support me in this important project by contributing generously to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure San Francisco Bay Area Affiliate. Your tax-deductible contribution will help women like Monique who need it now, by supporting local breast cancer programs, and will help protect women in the future by supporting Komen's national research grants program. It is faster and easier than ever to support this great cause - you can make your donation online by simply clicking on the link at the bottom of this message. If you would prefer, you can also send your tax-deductible contribution to the address listed below. More information on Komen San Francisco Bay Area and its programs can be found at http://www.komensf.org
Whatever you can give will help - it all adds up! I greatly appreciateyour support and will keep you posted on my progress. Feel free to forward this email to your friends and family and follow us on Facebook!

Hi everyone. I haven't posted in a while since I was so busy wrapping up my spring class schedule. I was planning to take June off, but as it turns out, I'll be taking the next 6 months off. This week, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Next week, I'll start chemotherapy. I'm not going to use this blog for updates, but started a new site at CaringBridge, which is specifically for that purpose. You can read lots more info on what's going on, and stay up to date as my family and I will be posting frequent updates. Here's the site: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/moniquegriffith
Thanks so much for your support and prayers, and I hope to be doing more fun and creative posts here on this blog soon!!
