With help from our friends

Last year, my friend Susan Snyder and her life partner, Doug Murray, cycled through the Columbia River Gorge as part of Jackson's Ride the Gorge, a fundraiser for the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation. At the start of the ride, they wore T-shirts with my photo and "Cruisin' for Suzie" written under it. On the back was a kid on a tricycle, looking over his shoulder and sticking out his tongue. He says, "Take THAT sarcoma!"

It is great to have friends. It is even better to have friends with a sense of humor.

This year, the event will be July 18. Melissa Hill, the foundation's executive director, has been very supportive of the alliance. Also, please check out Susan's blog, Nature's Call.
