Whew, I made it. Was able to raise over 5Grand for Cancer Research by getting friends to sponser a 6 mile swim I'm doing on July 31. Quite surprisingly, not a single dollar came from any Javaranchers. ??? I must say it's not what I expected...
Ol' Johnny Dunn wouldn't be here if not for these types of fundraisers. Remember I was once a recipient of the benefits of these types of donations, when I underwent experimental brain surgery in '91; and even though it nearly killed me, it ultimately cured me - 100%!!! So I will swim in memory of the loved ones I've lost, but also to share my good-fortune with those still waiting and hoping for cures of their own.
