Dance For A Cure


It would be difficult to find someone who has NOT been touched by cancer in some way.  We've all gone through the agony of wishing there was something we could do for a Parent, a Sibling, an Aunt or Uncle, a Grandchild, a Niece or Nephew one of our Grandparents, one of our Children, our Spouse or Life Partner who was enduring the fear, pain and suffering associated with cancer.  And we've all had Friends or CoWorkers who have been afflicted by cancer. For the past several years, Karen Humphrey and her Mommas in Pajamas team supports the American Cancer Society in its fundraising efforts.  On Friday, April 10, the will be participating in the Relay For Life event out in Sugar Land, TX.  Please support this terrific event.  Click here for more details
