Stand Up To Cancer

After orchestra rehearsal, I was blathering on to a friend about minor family problems; I finally asked her how she was, and she told me she was traveling to see her daughter the next day because her daughter was having a double mastectomy. That puts things in perspective.

I'm watching "Stand Up to Cancer" now, very moving. Earlier this afternoon, I got a call from another cancer organization, or so they said. I asked how much of my donation would go toward research. They said 20 percent. Amazing they would even admit it. In contrast, 100 percent of donations to Stand Up to Cancer go to research. I'll donate to Stand Up to Cancer, just as soon as I can get through by phone or on the web site!
