Many Women

Many women in my life have had to fight long tough battles with cancer. This disease has caused my family such heartache and grief. I hope that one day we can find a cure..and I believe we will.
On June 6 2008 I will be participating in the Relay for Life sponsored by the Canadian Cancer Society. While my goal of $500 may seem small, I wanted to set it realistically and adjust it as necessary.
The knitting community has supported so many causes in the past, and I know it feels like someone is always asking for help, but here it is...one more time.
I've given up my yarn budget for 3 months to put towards this relay, and I would be so grateful for even a penny from yours. Help me reach my goal!! (my name is Sarah Dupuis if you are having trouble..and in SUDBURY Ontario (thanks Dee)
I'm going to start posting some prizes which will be raffled off after the relay. If you donate just send me an e-mail letting me know you did so (no need to tell me how much) and I will enter you in the draw. sarahUNDERSCOREbraundATyahooDOTcom. If you would rather pay by paypal, feel free to send it to the e-mail address above.

Winners will be drawn on Saturday June 7 .

The start of the prizes:(there will be more to come)

Prize 1.
2 Skeins of my handspun laceweight singles each about 1000 m . Each winner will receive 1 skein.

Prize 2.
A copy of The Yarn Harlot's Knitting Rules!

You go girl! I've done several Breast Cancer Marathon walks and it is so rewarding personally to be making a difference.

Wish I could help you but got hit with two very large car repair bills this week. Think I'll be eating PBJ's for lunch next week.
