Donate to Komen Oregon.
Why did we color (colour?) our boat pink and take up a "cause" other than cultivating tendonitis-proof wrists?
Our mutual friend Ginni had an "experiment" with the cancer last fall. Columbia River Kayaking's December 7, '06, blog entry "The New Adventure" began this way:
"The adventure is not always what you anticipate. In a slight detour, our kayak guide is temporarily experimenting with breast cancer..."
More recent blog entries document her quick and successful operation and nearly-immediate seasonal migration to The Baja:
"Freedom Report: News the other day was good. No chemo, no radiation. Baja bound in 3-4 weeks! ..." (2006-12-22 post, http://kayaktravel.blogspot.com/2006_12_01_archive.html)
Survivors of cancer sometimes need a little support. Stay tuned for how you can support Ginni directly, or consider a donation directly to the excellent foundations mentioned in this blog.
See you on the water!
