Very few of us make it through life without being touched by cancer – our own or a loved one’s. Coming May 6, Susan G. Komen of North Louisiana will be holding it’s annual ‘Dancing for the Cure.’ This year my longtime collaborator, friend, contributor to LGBTSR, and co-host of our weekly Twist Podcast, is participating AND competing!

You can donate here, or, just as importantly (and simply!) like his Facebook page for the event. The person who gets the most likes gains a special award for their company as well as more money for the cause! So, if you can’t swing a few dollars, just give Rick’s page a like. Truly, madly, deeply appreciated.
