I cut the arrow from your neck, stretched you beneath the tree

When you're standing in front of a giant glowing clown head that says "Death" might be in the wrong place.

Not meant to lead off from there, but...We start with a cousin. Miss Sanura Snowpaw's first-life cousin, in fact, who lost his fight against brain cancer a decade after receiving the diagnosis, on the 13th of August, 2009. Because this cause is so deeply personal to her, when she heard about the Grey Ribbon Crusade and other charities, she came up with the Wear Grey for a Day campaign for SL.

On September 18th, 2009, there will be many vendors who have set out specially-made grey outfits and items just for this event. All who participate (I'm one of the participants) display the Wear Grey logo banner (seen above, and in Autogenic Alchemy in Penzance, more information can be gained with a click) along with their item.

Some information on the Leap for a Cure program, along with their events list and their Twitter feed.

Anyone who wishes to participate and donate 25%, 50%, 75% or 100% of proceeds received will be gratefully acknowledged, she says, on the blog. But more than that, she is committing herself to reporting full transaction histories from the course of proceeds received, with evidence that they are going to the American Cancer Society.

If you have any questions, direct them to Sanura Snowpaw, Prue Genira, Colorful Sinister, or Kali Jetcity.

We end with a blog. Support them if you can.

Th-th-th-that's all, folks

In the meantime, see you on the other side. Hopefully no more than a few days. We'll know when we get there...

Cancer is all about telomerase, take that away from it and its all just a tiny little lump the size of a dime.

GL with all of this.

Well, research is early yet, but even if you're right, how does that work as a preventative? Or in cases where cancer has already manifested?

Twenty-five years from now, advanced cellular/mitochonidrial research may prove out, and we'll have cures, for cancer and other ailments. Right now, though? It's all early theorizing.

Thanks for the well wishes--tomorrow, we move into the new place, and start setting up; as soon as we find the computers, we'll be hooked back up and on track.

Without desks. And we don't know where the desk chairs are. And we have little for other furniture...

But it'll all work out. In time.

Thank you so much Emilly for helping to get the word out it is so appreciated words can't even express.

More than welcome. It may not raise much, overall, but every little bit helps. We are at the forefront of so much emergent medical technology currently...breakthroughs could, quite literally, be *just* around the corner.
