Get Off My Lawn! (And Do Something Good)

Get Off My Lawn! (and go do some good)

I’ve brought you here today to send you away. Normally I want a lot of readers and a lot of traffic, but I don’t want you here today. I want you to go elsewhere.

This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve never been directly affected by this disease, even within my extended family, but I have known a few people who have had to deal with this horrible disease.  So rather than write about it here, I’d like to direct you to two different posts.

The first is a post I wrote earlier this week for Inspiring Generosity, a blog from Razoo that is promoting the PinkGiving 2012 Campaign. The post is the result of an interview I did with an old friend, Lisa Minikowski, who is the kids sister to a few of the guys I hung out with in junior and senior high. Let me just say that the time I spent on the phone with Lisa was pretty incredible. Despite all she is going through, and has been through, she is so upbeat.

Then I want to direct you to Lisa’s own blog. Her most recent post, Inquiring Minds Wanted to Know, gives the story of how she first discovered she had breast cancer.

So what are you still doing here? There’s nothing more to see. Go read Dear Cancer, You Don’t Stand a Chance, Sincerely Lisa and then read Inquiring Minds Wanted to Know.

Now scram! You can thank me later.


This is a great reminder to do something selfless and a bit more meaningful. It's always nice to take some time out of the day to make others smile, read their story, share their story or help them out... especially when it is a life changing event. Cancer has touched all of our lives in some shape or form. 


I just read Lisa's post...glad to see her faith in the face of a terrible struggle. Thanks for sharing!

@Soulati | B2B Social Media Marketing Thanks, Jayme. I wrote the post for Inspiring Generosity, and I thought why not shine the light on that more. It made sense. Plus when I read Lisa's latest post, I knew I needed to share her story there as well.
