Cancer…does this word touch a cord somewhere in you ?…then read on…

This post is an appeal….an appeal to all you kind hearted souls out there to chip in and help a fellow blogger, Briana Bronlow…Bri, as she is lovingly called, who would like to try alternative therapies in her brave fight against cancer. The people at Jugalbandi are organising a fundraiser for this wonderful cause to support a fellow blogger in her trying times.

This is an appeal on behalf of a group of food bloggers who are friends of Briana Brownlow @ Figs With Bri.

Bri was diagnosed with breast cancer two and half years ago. A mastectomy, chemotherapy and two years of relatively good health later, the cancer is back. It has metastasized to other parts of her body. At the age of 15, Bri lost her 41-year old mother to the disease. Now, she’s waging her own war against breast cancer. More about it here.

She is going through intensive chemo and other treatments and needs to focus single-mindedly on healing and finding what treatment works best for her. Her health insurance, unfortunately, does not cover holistic alternatives which she would like to try. Bri and her husband Marc have enough on their plates right now in addition to worrying about her medical bills.

The team organising the JUNE edition of CLICK at Jugalbandi has organised a fundraiser to help Bri and her family meet her out-of-pocket medical costs for ONE YEAR.

The fundraiser will extend until July 15, 2008.

The target amount is 12,000 U.S. dollars. We appeal to our fellow bloggers and readers to help us achieve this. Bri deserves a chance to explore all options, even if her insurance company thinks otherwise.

There’s a raffle with exciting prizes on offer. After viewing the list, you may make your donation HERE or at the Chip-In button on any participating site.

Your donation can be made securely through credit card or Pay Pal and goes directly to Bri’s account.You can donate any amount. But each $25 donation will give you one raffle ticket towards a prize of your choice. The bid prices for some prizes are higher (e.g. 40, 50 or 100 U.S. dollars).

I have offered 2, Flickr pro subscriptions, for a year, for your photographic needs…and here’s what you get with it…

  • unlimited uploads and storage
  • unlimited sets and collections
  • access to your original files
  • Stats on your account

The code for the subscriptions, (and there are two of them to be won), is…

Click on the CHIP-IN BUTTON (below or in my side bar). The money donated through this link goes directly to Bri’s account.Contribute securely Via Paypal or credit card. Please makes sure that the e-mail address you enter for your donation is valid and in use. This is where you will be notified if you win a prize.

I am pretty sure that with all you generous people out there, we will really be able to reach the target. Let’s all chip in :-)
