Skate Your Butt Off – Sunday May 19, 2019 in Santa Clarita, California

I have been invited to attend the “Skate Your Butt Off” Roller Event fundraiser for the Anal Cancer Foundation. My event tickets are purchased, I have a travel buddy (Judy Lee-Wing) and our flights are booked!

I will be showcasing my book “Cancer Up the Wazoo: Stories, Information, and Hope for Those Affected by Anal Cancer” and there will be some copies available for purchase. A portion of the proceeds from each book sold will go towards the Anal Cancer Foundation.

If you would like more information on the event, or if you would like to donate funds to this cause, please contact the Anal Cancer Foundation. Alternatively, you can always contact me:

 

Thanks for reading!

On Thursday, September 27, 2018, my two latest books Cancer Up the Wazoo and How to Edit an Anthology were presented and launched at McNally Robinson Booksellers in Winnipeg, Manitoba. It was also a fundraiser for the “CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.” 60 people attended and Tache Pharmacy sponsored the beverages. There were also decorated sugar cookies (made with love by me, Sheila and Simone) and brownies (made by Cupp, my husband).

I also revealed my latest project — a symbol of HOPE. It includes the anal cancer ribbon in green and purple and a dragonfly. The logo was created with the talented help from Fusion Communications. The dragonfly is a creation of Chinese brush artist Virginia Lloyd-Davies. Her artwork is also found in the book, Cancer Up the Wazoo. I have plans to help share this beautiful logo with those as a symbol of strength and hope.

Although there are 25 people who contributed to the book, only 5 of us were able to be at the launch. These three short speeches were very touching.

Overall, the launch was a success and we raised $300 for the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation! In addition to that, $1 from the sale of each copy of Wazoo will be donated to the HPV and Anal Cancer Foundation.

To purchase copies, you can find Cancer Up the Wazoo and How to Edit an Anthology on Amazon or at McNally Robinson Booksellers.

 

A special thank you to all who attended, donated and purchased books.

Warm regards,
