In January I had my tests to see if the MM was back and in February I got the news I had relapsed, after 5 years in full remission. In between those two dates I received a call from The MMRF asking me to be the Spirit of Hope honoree at this year’s Laugh For Live event on May 1st. It was very awkward because I didn’t feel like I had really done anything. After I started posting about my relapse I really paid attention to the responses and realized that maybe I do have something that inspires others. Again, it’s awkward but I am truly appreciative of the award. But how do I ask for donations to an event where I am being honored. The answer – Deadpool gave it to me.
I have all the detail here: http://bit.ly/billdonate. In short, Ryan Reynolds posted a video, in a pink Deadpool outfit, and spoke about how he was raising money to F cancer. It made me realize I want to cure my cancer – why aren’t I raising money! In the link above I explain this more eloquently and also highlight what I will do if we reach out targets!
So have a read, share the story and help us raise that money! And if anyone knows Ryan Reynolds please put me in touch – if we reach that 1 million goal then I need him to decide what to do with that tattoo on my head!
thanks for reading!
