I will give away a custom Sopranoplanet mouthpiece on October 1st.

There is only one way to enter the drawing:
make a donation (which is tax-deductible) to BREAST CANCER OPTIONS.​

The donation in its entirety goes directly to this wonderful and vital organization.
They were a huge help when breast cancer struck our family and they provide lots of services and information, both traditional and alternative, to those who are in need. They even have a respite summer camp for the children of families that have experienced breast cancer.

Anyone who makes a donation of ANY AMOUNT ( be as generous as you can be) between now and September 30th will be entered into the drawing.

Here is the website:​
http://www.breastcanceroptions.org/home_page0.aspx

Please PM or email me when you do make a donation.

If you post a "PM sent" or "Email sent", it will keep this thread in view for all to see!

Many thanks!​

Many thanks. That's a great start!

FWIW, the founder of BREAST CANCER OPTIONS is a great musician/singer with serious credentials.
Many of you have heard her voice, as she is the one doing the haunting obligato on Todd Rundgren's old hit, HELLO, IT'S ME.

She's a player, a sweetheart and a committed warrior in the battle with breast cancer.


Please give something and perhaps get a great mouthpiece, too!

Donation made. Thanks for the opportunity, Joe, as I am unable to walk in this year's local cancer walk.

I'm betting that most everyone here knows someone affected by breast cancer - either directly in their immediate family or through a friend. I've known several women that have died from breast cancer or related effects and many more that are survivors.

Please see Joe's opening post at the top of this thread.

Here is the website related to his offer: http://www.breastcanceroptions.org/home_page0.aspx

Wife's cousin passed away August 19, 1990 at the tender age of 28.
Started off as breast cancer, then spread across her body.
Though we haven't participated, her mother (wife's aunt) has done the Avon walk many times.

Great thing you're doing Joe.
Many kudos.

Thank you, AmandasDad, for being a part of this.

LAST CALL !

Please take a second to make a donation of ANY AMOUNT to enter the drawing. See OP.
I will be making the announcement on Saturday night, October 1.
Any donations made before 9PM Eastern Time are eligible.
Do what ever you can do, please.

Many thanks.

Here is why this organization is so special to me: When my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer, it was a Friday evening at 6pm, and she was totally devastated by the news. It appeared, because the weekend had begun, we would have to wait until Monday to speak with a cancer specialist. My wife was inconsolable.

I remembered that an old musician friend had started a non-profit dedicated to the fight against breast cancer, so I contacted her immediately. With her contacts and efforts, my wife was in touch with the best cancer specialist in NYC within 24 hours and had an appointment scheduled for that Monday. This alone was enough to get her through the weekend with some calmness, and the end result was great care and a great outcome to this day, over 2 years since the surgery and now into a 5 year course of care.

BREAST CANCER OPTIONS does this kind of work and more, every day, 365 days a year. They are responsible for saving lives and keeping families strong during hard, difficult times.

Thanks again, all.

Thanks for doing this, Joe. As one whose family has been touched by this disease, it means a lot.
