2012 Firsts: I hosted my first Making Strides Open House to benefit the American Cancer Society

I’d previously co-hosted with my cousin, but this was my first solo attempt:) Our guests were generous, and I was able to exceed my personal goal of $1000.

Purple is the New Black

I just signed up for the San Jose/Almaden Relay for Life. This will be my first American Cancer Society event since Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and my first Relay for Life. I’ll be walking on behalf of my mother, a breast cancer survivor, and for relatives who have battled various forms of cancer and lost. I believe that we’re all placed on earth for a reason, and mine is to help defeat this horrible disease. I’ve set my fundraising goal at $1000, and I intend to reach it prior to the relay on May 5, 2012. Every dollar will help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

Could you help in the fight against cancer?

A Year of Firsts

2011 was truly a year of firsts for me, and I remain grateful for all of them. Hopefully 2012 will bring many new adventures!

Here were some of my firsts:

1) I appeared on Kofy TV’s Dance Party.

2) I helped host a friend’s bridal shower while battling laryngitis & organized a wonderful spa bachelorette outing for her.

3) I visited London and Paris for the first time.

4) I organized Team Don’t Stop Believing for American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event and participated in fundraising, open house planning, and the 5k walk itself. Our team raised over $3500 in the fight against breast cancer!

6) I served as Maid of Honor in my good friend’s wedding.

7) I ran a 10k, the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot, on Thanksgiving Day.

8) I saw my mother fight breast cancer and emerge even stronger.

Here’s to 2012!
