And before the WEEI RadioThon this past year me and a few of my friends got together and put a list together of at least four people we all knew struck by cancer and donated five dollars in each of their names. We raised just over $400 dollars and donated it the Jimmy Fund during the RadioThon. This is something that I would consider doing in the community for next year (if I'm in Boston during the RadioThon or I'll hand it off to one of my friends if I'm back at school). Other suggestions are welcome.
Also I thought about making a community for The Jimmy Fund when I was listening to Tim McGraw's song "Live Like You Were Dying" a song for his father Tug McGraw (Phillies Pitcher) who died of brain cancer last year. The song made me think of my cousin's husband who died this past June of leukemia and left behind his wife and a son.
