Help Support Breast Cancer Patients!

Dear Music Fans and Friends:

Normally we talk tunes here, but let me take a day to plug something important.  My sister Dorothy (below with me and the middle boy) had stage 3 breast cancer last year (she's doing great now, thanks) and this year her husband is riding his bike from Calgary to Maine to raise money for Wellspring, a wonderful organization that provides support services for free to patients in Calgary and Toronto.  If you're looking for a unique way to support breast cancer patients, you might consider sponsoring Dave on his lengthy trek.  He has to raise a minimum $10,000 to participate.  It's in a peloton relay formation, so he doesn't have to pedal every kilometer and mile, but still...woah!
Wellspring provides free support programs for cancer patients and their families. The services, yoga, healing touch massage, support groups for the various types of cancer, library, etc., etc. are all provided for free.

I am including some links below which provide more information.  Of course, any financial help at all (via the first link below) would be most appreciated.  We're all very proud of Dave for taking on this challenge, but a little envious of the obvious bragging points he'll gain afterward. 

Here is a link to Wellspring's homepage:
And here is a link to a 7 minute video telling the Wellspring story:
