Question of the Week: Can You Help Me @BreakCancer?


Okay, so I admit that this is more of a request and less of a question this week.

I want to ask all of my readers for their help with my impromptu Break Cancer event that I have scheduled for this Friday, April 22nd.

As I mentioned at the end of my Saturday post In Focus: Livestrong Young Adult Alliance (YAA), I got inspired to participate in the Break Cancer project. This is a collaboration between the YAA and URDB World Records. I am setting out to break a record for the "Most Comments Received on a Cancer-Related Blog Posts in 24 Hours" on a post I will be writing for Friday about my experience as a young adult cancer patient.

I can't do this without your help.

I need as many people as possible to come by my blog between 12 midnight to 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time on Friday and leave me a comment. In return, each commenter gets the satisfaction of knowing that they are helping to raise awareness of the issues facing young adults diagnosed with cancer, which is one of the primary goals of the YAA.

Please don't feel intimidated by the thought of leaving a comment. I'm just asking you to share a few words like "Great post." or "Good job." or "Good luck setting the record." or " Way to go." or "Break cancer!" or "Hey, come over and comment on my blog now."

Plus I want to take this opportunity to remind you that I do have anonymous commenting enabled, which means you don't need to share any of your personal information to leave a comment.

So, this Friday can you help me Break Cancer?

Please feel free to share the details below with anyone else you'd think would like to participate in this event:
