Dear Friends,

I took my kids to Dodger Stadium to watch them get womped on by the Cardinals on Saturday. It brought tears to my eyes as I remembered how big Dodger Stadium is. It seats 50,000 people. That is the same number of beautiful, American men and women that die EACH YEAR due to colorectal cancer.

I believe we can find a cure and found this noteworthy and hope you feel encouraged about this too!

"Stand Up to Cancer" on Sept. 5
ABC, CBS and NBC have set aside a prime-time hour on the Friday after Labor Day to simulcast a fundraiser for cancer research.

"Stand Up to Cancer" on Sept. 5 will feature musical performances and celebrity appeals, although no guests were immediately announced Tuesday. The rare simultaneous broadcast is reminiscent of a benefit for the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that was shown on many networks weeks later.

Hoping and praying for us all!!!

Jennifer

Thanks for the perspective...it takes my breath away.

Sadly, I will be out of the country on Sept 5....hopefully, it will be on the web...

Hugs, Kathi
