I love this picture of my twin brother and me: it was our birthday (yesterday!) and this is where I would joke about our age, insisting that we were actually celebrating another anniversary of our 29th birthday.
I've never been very comfortable with numbers, most especially when used as the "only" tool in defining a person's worth, but today I am putting all thoughts of vanity aside and outing myself:
I've had the privilege of celebrating 49 birthdays with my brother, Steve: and I have pledged to do my best in helping to make sure more folks get the chance to do the same, by helping to give cancer the virtual bitchslap it deserves!
The American Cancer Society is celebrating their 100th birthday this month (5/22/13) and, in honor of the many brave battles being fought (and/or lost) by way too many of my friends and family (as Steve continues to kick cancer's ass!), I have the extreme privilege of partnering with the ACS in helping to amplify their most recent effort in helping us to celebrate MORE of life's special moments:
"There was a time when the word “cancer” was spoken only in whispers – a time when we lost almost every patient. Yet today, 2 out of 3 survive to celebrate more birthdays. Let's make it 3 out of 3."
Join us for a Twitter party in honor of the American Cancer Society's 100th birthday to help finish the fight against cancer:
When: Wednesday, May 29, at 2p ET / 1p CT / 11a PT
Where: We’ll be on Twitter – follow the #FinishtheFight hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this Twtvite: http://twtvite.com/finishthefight
Prizes: Five prizes will be awarded throughout the party to participants who respond correctly to trivia questions. Each winner will receive a $25 VISA gift card.
