Not only do I love Suz's writing, but I also love her support of our troops. Regardless of anyone's political feelings, I don't think anyone can deny that helping others is an admirable thing to do.
This time around, one of those men needs our help. His name is Justin, and he's a Navy SEAL. Justin was diagnosed June 2 with acute lymphocyte leukemia, a fast-growing cancer that destroys the platelets and red and white blood cells. Without appropriate treatment, patients often die within months of the onset of the illness. Chemotherapy and radiation are usually the first line of defense. His best chance of survival is a bone marrow transplant.
Here's how you can help: you can take the swab test to see if you are a donor match. Other ways to help are to assist with a donor drive (held at each location Suz is having a booksigning) or to make a monetary donation. Here is a link for that. For more information, you can visit http://www.imaswabbie.blogspot.com/ for the latest updates.
And please don't miss Suz at Michelle Buonfiglio's Romance by the Blog on August 31st where she will be talking more about Justin and this very important cause.
Please feel free to spread the word. It takes so little to do soooo much. Thank you.
