10/25/10 is International Tumors Suck Day. It is a day for everyone to show support for someone dealing with an annoying tumor mass. Large/small, malignant/benign, no matter the type or location, they are all life changing occurrences. International Tumors Suck Day is a day to unite everyone touched by these horrible diseases. A brain tumor patient and a thyroid cancer patient may not have the same survivorship experiences, but we share a common disdain for tumors. On this day, we can all UNITE to battle all tumors with a little attitude. The loved ones of a tumor patient can also share this disdain. TUMORS SUCK DAY was created to unite EVERYONE touched by a tumor mass.
All that this day involves is making sure the TUMORS SUCK! logo is visible to show support for someone dealing with a tumor. No matter the type, size, or location they ALL SUCK! You can print-n-post the TUMORS SUCK logo, wear a TUMORS SUCK sticker, or wear a TUMORS SUCK t-shirt… just let people know that you think ALL TUMORS SUCK! Breast cancer, brain tumors, prostate cancer, testicular cancer… they all SUCK! Just take a picture with the logo and post it on the Tumors Suck facebook page. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO TO SHOW SUPPORT IS DISPLAY THE TUMORS SUCK LOGO! We just want to unite all those touched by an annoying tumor mass. Please show support for someone dealing with an annoying tumor mass like “Lumpy the tumor mass” by posting the TUMORS SUCK logo on 10/25/10.
The next day, on 10/26/10 at 6PM mAss Kickers Foundation is hosting our first official fundraiser as a federally recognized tax deductible organization. We are holding our first fundraising event at JR Seau’s Restaurant in Mission Valley San Diego 6-9PM on 10/26. The funds raised from the event will go to mAss Kickers Foundation activities in 2011.
We have very ambitious plans for 2011. To give you an idea of some of our plans:
- develop stronger partnerships with Stand Up to Cancer and The LiveStrong Young Adult Alliance
- collaborate on events with organizations with similar missions
- become more active in the Oncology Section of the American Physical Therapy Association
- strengthen our voice in the brain tumor community
We need funds to even start thinking about doing this. mAss Kickers Foundation is taking a unique approach on attacking ALL tumors and cancer. We have developed the TUMORS SUCK! awareness campaign and the USE THE K.U.R.E. action campaign as a strategy to fight an intimidating new tumor diagnosis!
Here is the link to our first official fundraiser in San Diego. Space is limited to 150 seats, so please reserve your ticket on the event site!
It would be great to see you on 10/26 at Seau’s Restaurant in San Diego. However, if you cannot attend, you can make a tax deductible donation to mAss Kickers Foundation here https://www.stayclassy.org/checkout/donation.
