Spike Needs Help

Spike needs Help

While I have been around a while I normally just read the post and watch the sometime’s witty banter. I have been around long enough to know Spike is an invaluable resource to anyone asking his help and he always responds.

So why when he needs our help with a donation the response is almost nonexistent? Its not like it’s for his personal gain, I am sure everybody has had either a family member or friend that had to deal with Cancer, and believe regardless of its outcome it’s always devastating.

So in that sprit of helping others, something that he has done since this board started now I believe it’s our turn to step up…..



I don't normally do this but my God Daughter is doing the "Relay For Life" with the American Cancer Society. Cancer took my dad, my dad's dad, my mom is a breast cancer survivor and that makes it personal. So if you have an extra $5 for her, I would appreciate it and so would McKayla!

Thanks in advance

We plan to stay overnight on March 31st at Newsome HS and have fun in the race for the cure while helping to make a difference! Either way, my team (and family) will be on the track for the 18 hour relay.
Thank you!

Very good cause.
Like many, cancer has affected some near and dear to me.

Wish McKayla well.

Thanks again for all the love and donations. I talked with Mckayla tonight and she sounded so happy that she got all these donations that she has no idea who the people are that donated for her. She was most proud that she had over $500 and her dad had just 1 donation, from his work, for only $200.

After looking at the tally board on the donation site, it looks like we're (as in all of us) in 5th place by less than $200.

C'mon ladies and jents, lets go for 1st.

I wake up to find you guys and girls here have pushed her over $750!!! I really am grateful for all your help for her and for cancer. I hate cancer, taken too many of my family away, far too young.
