good morning

Good morning & Happy Memorial Day! We are enjoying a fabulous "staycation" (thanks for the idea Besty) in the city with a healthy dose of leisure shopping, eating, & sleeping in. I knew that the smell of bacon would lure Robby out of bed early this morning to get a good start on our holiday. Have a happy one!

Hi Kelsey:

The American Cancer Society of Salt Lake City thinks you are simply amazing and have so much to contribute in terms of teaching women how to eat healthfully and avoid cancer. This year I have signed up to walk and form a team in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer I know that there are a lot of breast cancer events out there, but Making Strides speaks to me because funds raised enable the American Cancer Society to help people stay well and get well from breast cancer, find cures, and empower people to fight back today. With your help and influence , we can save so many lives.
They say that every donation makes a difference, and it really is true. I know that times are tighter than normal for many of us, but if you would consider leading a team of people we would raise an additional $3 million to fight breast cancer. Imagine what an incredible difference we could make together!
I have sent this email to you because I believe you, too, would make a great team leader -- and I'm sure there are folks at your place of work, your kids school, your husband's workplace and other family members who would follow you and join your team!
I'd like to invite you to first visit the website -- that website will give you all the details of the walk and show you how easy it is to form a team. Secondly, I'd like to send you an invitation to the kickoff breakfast on August 13 at Rice-Eccles stadium -- this event will move you in every way with survivor stories, the work that's going on in the legislature for breast cancer and so much more!
As a little extra inspiration, I thought you might like to know a few of the ways your donation will help the American Cancer Society save lives every day:

More people in our community will have the information and tools they need to help prevent breast cancer or find it early.
More people with breast cancer will have a place to turn around the clock to help them through every step of their cancer journey whether it’s a free ride to treatment, a place to stay, or just talking to someone who has "been there."
More progress will be made toward finding breast cancer’s causes and cures. The American Cancer Society has played a role in nearly every major breast cancer breakthrough of the last century, which have led to the discovery of lifesaving breast cancer treatments like Tamoxifen and Herceptin. You will help us find more.
More women like our own mothers, daughters, sisters, and grandmothers will have access to lifesaving mammograms and treatment they need.
Each of us has our own reasons for caring about the fight against breast cancer … whatever your reasons, I hope you’ll choose to make a difference by leading a team to walk with me. . I’m so grateful to have great people like you in my life who care about breast cancer! Together we will make a difference, make history, and make strides.
Please let me know if I may send you an invitation to the kickoff breakfast that will welcome you to the Making Strides in Breast Cancer family and provide you with all the information you need to be a terrific team leader! Kelsey, please give me a call and let me know if you're interested -- my number is 801-493-4731 or my email is
