Every year when it's Breast Cancer Awareness month I get a message on facebook where someone tells me to post on my wall what color of bra I'm wearing. I never have/did. I thought in my head, How is writing down a color going towards helping breast cancer awareness?
I was challenged by a student to do the Ice Bucket Challenge. After reading about the challenge I was for it.
My brother-in-law's father died of Lou Gehrig's Disease. Every time he'd visit he couldn't do something new. It started with him not being able to button, then he fell easy, then he was unable to walk, then unable to breathe and eat, and then he sadly passed away. I've known other people that have had MS.
Yes it's silly dumping water over your head, but if it gets the word out about these illnesses, and people donate then I'm in.
I also watched this video, and was in tears afterwards. It's silly, and odd in the beginning, but turns serious. The guy in the video has ALS.
I'm donating, and I did the challenge with some of my coworkers.
