It's lunchtime, and I'm "lurking". Checking out potential new blog reads. You know what I'm talking about.
And I find this blog. And at first I'm impressed because it has OVER 2,000 followers! Hmmm...worth a read. So, I read the most recent post. And do you know what? It's about Brandy. Do you remember Brandy and the love of her life (Hot Awesome Dude)? If not, that's okay. You can read my post HERE. So then...I find Brandy's blog. You can find it HERE ----> It's Like, I'm mmmagic!
Anyway, the bad news is that he DOES have Multiple Myeloma. The good news is that Brandy is a blogger. And YOU know how WE bloggers support each other :)
So, this blog I've come across is called Clever Girl Goes Blog. She's obviously huge, and a blog friend of Brandy's. Her post talks about how we as bloggers can spread the word. How we don't have to just read Brandy's story and wish we could help them somehow. We can help them!
Now, I know that there are many terrible things going on in the world today. I know that most of us have been inspired to give money to Haiti. Lord knows I did. How could I not? What a tragedy/horrific natural disaster. Many of us give to the American Cancer Society, because who of us hasn't had their life touched by cancer? I know I have.
But this Multiple Myeloma. What the heck is it specifically? Do lots of people have it? Why should I help support THIS cure over some other cure? You don't have to. It's okay. Really. No one is going to smack your hand or shun you if you don't. But you know what? I donated. I donated because if I found out there was something wrong with TEN I would come right to my computer, open up a new post, and ask for your prayers. Just like Brandy has. Because I believe in prayer. And I believe in miracles. And I can't for the life of me figure out why this girl's story is breaking my heart. And scaring me. Other than the fact that I too am a blogger, and I have a Hot Awesome Dude in my life.
So, if you want to make a donation, go HERE.
If you don't want to make a donation, please say a prayer for a really cool blogger, and a Hot Awesome Dude who are having a really tough time right now.
