    I helped Anne back in 07 ...it was a great time and raised lots of money. I still talk to her so I will let her know about it and see if I can get her to attend.
    Last time we did a race, seems to me many ran naked ( except for their sash) with back packs empty. Old guys like me dont get naked in public so I just rode along ressing people.
    Every one donated leet/ or semi leet items for the auction then we all show up and bid on them. We donated proceeds from our friday night hunts for the month.

    I will search the back up drives and see what I have for pictures...and hit anne up to look too.

    Spoke with Anne Nomilly last night ....she was thrilled to find out that the relay of life event is going again. She commented on still having sashes and stuff from the original one she can donate. She also promised to look for pictures of the original event. I am working on getting her commitment to attend the run and auction. ( but she just bought a new house and is changing jobs too so she is a tad crazy just now) Actually I have known her for around 12 years...she is usually a tad crazy so right now she is freaking insane ! :)

    I proudly wear a TEAL sash (My Lt. Sash is dyed that color too) for Ovarian Cancer.

    I'll tell you my personal story here.

    I was just 16 years old when I found out my mother had ovarian cancer. A week into her diagnosis, she had exploratory surgery that ended with a fully hysterectomy, dual oophorectomy, partial removal of her intestines and a small part of her stomach. When she got out of this surgery, the doctor's were hopeful but still wanted her to undergo 6 months of chemotherapy as a preventive measure. During that time, it was evident she wasn't getting better. She was getting worse. I watched my mother die every day, a little bit more every day. She was diagnosed in April of 1991 and died on October 15th, 1991. Ovarian cancer is one of the most deadliest cancers a woman could get. Its silent... they call it the "Silent Killer"... and it absolutely wrecks your body (as cancer of any kind really), and those around you are left helpless to watch.

    My mother was so kind, and so giving, and I was barely 17 when she died. And I learned more from her in those short seventeen years than I ever did in the rest of my life --- I turn 40 this year. So that alone can tell you how much she meant to me. I miss her everyday. Everyday there is something I wish to I could pick up the phone to tell her about.... every single day.

    I work very close with the Ovarian Cancer Alliance: http://www.ovariancancer.org/ to eradicate this horrible disease and make women safer, live longer lives, and provide support to survivors --- whether they are survivors of the disease itself or those caregivers/loved ones that have survived the passing of someone close to them.

    I thank you Mare Jade Sky (and in that extension Anne Nomilly) for creating such a great event!

    Thank you!

    you are most welcome pandy. Cancer is the hard killer for family cuz you never know when the next day maybe your last when you have cancer, I was 15 all most 16 when my grandmother pass in 1999, and it was the hard thing i had ever gone throw to see a 74 year old women who was so strong and out going so loving, slowly slip away. even in 10 when my step grandma had past it was hard cuz i live so far away and couldnt say my good by see i was 7month along with my youngs, but i can stay i have my Aunt still she fight every day and we all stand behind her cuz unlike most the other cancer LEUKEMIA can not be removed by surgery.. So i do this in Real life and now in game to help those see another birthday another thankgiving another new years.

    If anything it just helps to put everything into perspective. For me it now reminds me of all the great things my mother accomplished in her short time on Earth; 54 years. She didn't let anything bog her down or get to her... and she let things go and didn't hold grudges. Life is short, let it go!

    Okay Mare, I dropped some items at the square in Vesper. I do have one other item I think might sell well, but would need the okay to offer it to the cause. If he agrees to it, I would like to offer Timberwolf's whispering rose. Not only is TW a reporter on Stratics, he is also a long standing and respected member of our community. I should think there would be many that would love to add such a treasure to their collection.

    The Rose actually has Timberwolf on it. I rescued it long ago from an IDOC. And yeah RW I forgot you were an evil Mod and not a trusted reporter. Either way though,. your name is a part of the history of this shard.

    I have offered TW his rose back. The choice is his, and I will not release the rose without his say so. Or maybe I will sell it to Flutter so she can torture the rose. Oh yes, a bit of ebil goes a long way. *winks*

    Ya it was a sad day when I realized a month later that I got my dates wrong and all my houses and items were forever gone! I cried and rode off thinking to never return.....but this game is like crack, and once an addict always an addict. Annie gave me my fix and got me hooked again :)
