Breast Cancer Programs

One of the main reasons I chose to support the American Cancer Society is the programs they have for breast cancer patients.

Look Good...Feel Better
The Look Good...Feel Better® program is a free, community-based, national service that helps women learn beauty techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Volunteer beauty professionals lead small groups, usually consisting of 6 to 10 women, through practical, hands-on experience. In a fun, encouraging environment, women learn about skin care, makeup techniques, nail care, and options related to hair loss such as wigs, turbans, and scarves. Each program participant receives a free kit of cosmetics for use during and after the workshop. For women who are unable to attend a group workshop, a free, one-time, individual salon consultation with a volunteer cosmetologist may be available. A free self-help brochure for men also is available.

The Look Good...Feel Better program is offered by the American Cancer Society in collaboration with the Personal Care Products Council and the National Cosmetology Association. All cosmetology volunteers attend a 4-hour certification class.

This is just one of the programs the American Cancer Society has in place. Check out their website to see where your money goes once you donate to the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk.

Old City Oil Drippers Stepping up to the plate to Save 2nd Base

I have been posting on various forums about Dub N Rub...vwvortex, thesamba, dubkorps,, and dubsontheboards specifically...and made mention that stickers/vinyl would not be done this year due to budget constraints. Well OCOD's Brian Batzel and Rick Milne got their heads together and offered up stickers for DnR as their donation to the cause.  Rick did a little tweaking on the original, and here is the final proof of the sticker. 
I am tickled pink...pun fully intended...and am very grateful to OCOD.  They've been such great supporters of DnR from the beginning by promoting it at Dripfest. 

I can't thank them enough. If you haven't made plans yet be at Dripfest June 5th~ I know I will be!

Stopped by Thru It All Body Shop in Mount Joy PA yesterday morning and spoke with Keith who is an air cooled guy!  He donated a few shirts for the raffle.

*  Making Strides is your opportunity to honor breast cancer survivors, educate women about breast cancer prevention and early detection, and raise funds and awareness to help achieve a day when no one will have to hear the words “You have breast cancer.” The majority of Making Strides events take place during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October. They are typically five kilometers (3.1 miles) or five miles in length.
The American Cancer Society has a presence in more than 3,400 communities across the country and is the only organization available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help people touched by cancer. Breast cancer is the number one reason people call the Society. When you support Making Strides, you are helping the Society seek better ways to prevent, detect, and treat breast cancer, as well as provide help and hope to people facing the disease.

tick tock

As I was reminded last night the show is approaching...and I am feeling the need to solicit!
I spent Saturday morning trolling forums and the internet to see which local companies get mentioned with good it looks like I am going to be taking a day off in the next few weeks so I can drive around and beg. 

I also am beginning to stress about the show set up. All these little things are starting to build up, and my ulcer's kicking in!  But I suppose I am not suppose to talk about this stuff, right? These are not the droids you are looking for.

I posted a link from my Facebook page to my page on the Making Strides against Breast Cancer site.  If you can't make the show, take 2 minutes to donate a few bucks to Saving 2nd Base!
