the grey matters

If you haven't noticed by now, then you aren't paying attention to the sidebar.  I've posted a new button for The Grey Matters.  A great friend and her brother started this group after their father was diagnosed with brain cancer.  They are doing fundraisers to support various groups and research.

"We are here with the mission to give a CAUSE to Think, and to think BIG, to help bring awareness to those that are unaware of the effects of brain cancer and to provide support for those who are directly and indirectly affected by brain cancer."

Their first fundraiser is Nov 13-17, 2009.  It is a weekend trail hike that will travel 29 miles through the Appalachian Trail.  This fundraiser will benefit The Friends of Caroline Hospice group.  If you are interested the fundraiser go here - or just want to donate a couple of dollars - go here.

I am also looking for ways to help spread awareness on a disease that hasn't just affected them, but my family as well.  If you have any ideas of a contest to spread the word, I am all ears.


  1. No advice. But I think it's great that you are helping spread awareness of this disease.

  2. Great thing to do. My father died from prostrate cancer and it was a terrible thing to watch him waste away.

    Sorry, no advice but I will watch your blog to see what develops:)
