I’d like to point you all for a moment towards my dear friend Birds, who is running this year in the NYC Marathon to raise money in memory of his brother Paul, who lost his battle with cancer some years ago.
Birds is also selling his very snazzy Canon Digital SLR , with lenses et al, to raise cash for the same foundation, the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
Please take some time to check out the above links and consider donating – any amount is acceptable – or if you’re in the market for a new camera do check it out. I’ve been drooling over this camera gear since he got it (which wasn’t that long ago) and if i wasn’t currently helping out my own family (i.e., wayward son) cash-wise, i’d snap it up in an instant.
Birds has known me since almost the beginning of my Photography career, back when i was a Pathetic Limping Beastie fresh from my spinal injury living in New Mexico.
He’s been there for me in too many ways to count, and consistently makes me laugh till i nearly pee my knickers, even when i’m convinced there is NOTHING to laugh about, not ever again, oh the pain…etc.
Also, I have personally lost 5 people to cancer – one just recently; and one of my good friends is currently battling cancer of the Kidneys.
I’m sure many of you have lost someone, or know someone who has.
Not many of us have what it takes to do what Birds is doing.
It would warm the cockles of my cold & jaded little heart if you all would consider helping out.
