I accept your challenge. In fact I don't think 49,792 people can donate 10 bucks. Either they don't have Amazon or Paypal accounts, or they simply have a good reason why they can't do it. Ruth and I have set aside 500.00 for donations every year. I have just donated $100.00 to HW. It's money well spent and I have done my part to help pick up the slack where others might not be able to. The month of September is Prostate cancer awareness month. We will indeed be generous this year and will likely exceed our donation budget. I for one know that the facility that treated me is worthy and I send that message to all of you. Remember the cool nurse, doctor, medical assistant, but mostly the genuine care you received. That special whatever it was is worth reinforcing. For me The City of Hope and the Nevada Cancer Institute our institutions that are funded by our insurance companies, government grants and programs, and ourselves. These places are run with people that are a different type of person than what I was accustomed to. With great gratitude, those sites will be seeing a healthy donation from me and my wife.
