What a CPO does when she's not CPOing-- Blog for the cure for MS
By suncpo on Aug 20, 2007
Hello Privacy folks,
While I fully plan to talk all about the millions of ideas that my various trips to China, Redmond, Travers City & Canada this summer have sparked... today's entry is not privacy related at all. But you may end up feeling better for having read it & doing something about it.
As many of you may know, apart from data privacy, one of my great passions is in contributing funds to research to unravel medical mysteries and to contribute to programs designed to bring comfort to families impacted by health issues beyond their control. This year some of my favorite folks at Sun Microsystems have teamed up to form Team Sun to share our passion for making the world a better place & to participate in a bike tour to raise money here in Northern California.
Every hour of every day, someone is diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS)-- MS is a disease that impacts the central nervous system resulting in a variety of frightening and unpredictable symptoms.
That's why I registered for the MS Bike Tour, and why I'm including the link should you find yourself wishing you could support our fund raising efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is dedicated to ending the devastating effects of MS but they can't do it without our help. It's faster and easier than ever to support this cause that's so important to me.
You can either follow the link at the bottom of this message or, if you prefer, you can send your contribution to the address listed below.
Any amount, great or small, helps to make a difference in the lives of people with MS. I appreciate any and all financial and moral support and look forward to letting you know how I do.
P.S. If you would like more information about the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, how proceeds from the MS Bike Tour are used, or the other ways you can get involved in the fight against MS, please visit nationalmssociety.org.
