There’s a wave building far out in the virtual sea. One that will drown out all other voices but those of 1 million cancer warriors marching on the National Mall in Washington DC on Sunday, June 3, 2012.
It’s an election year, kids. Let’s make enough noise to drown out what Calvin Trillin calls “the Sabbath Gasbags”, and get attention for our cause – one that touches every single American life in one way or another: cancer.
Let’s end it. Let’s put an end to death by cancer.
Here’s how to get on board the bus:
- Contact me
- Tell me how many warriors are in your group
- Plan on being in Richmond by Saturday, June 2 so you can ride to DC with us on the Team Plaid Warrior Express, or
- Meet us in DC on Sunday morning at our Early Detection Rally Roundup and join us as we storm the National Mall
The warriors who have kicked off this effort are:
Donna Guinn Kaufman, head weapon-wielder at Kill the Beast who became a cancer warrior when diagnosed with breast cancer, while pregnant, a little over five years ago
Jennifer Salmon Melton, author of Pink Sky at Night, a remembrance of her father’s battle with lung cancer
and also on board to help make the Warrior Wave bigger than anything Washington has ever seen is Jennifer Stauss Windrum, the leading light of WTF Lung Cancer, who you’ve heard me sing out about here before.
You on the bus? You better be!
