Our Blog is Back

For almost 2 years we ran our entire web presence through this blog. Since moving over to our new web site we left this blog idle as we began to grow and tackle new things.

After getting many requests from people to find out more about the history of our organization, we felt the best way to describe the history of @AbolishCancer was to show it as it occurred. You can see the history of our site and our thoughts as we grew as an organization dating all the way back to October 2009.

We plan on keeping our blog active as we create more frequent updates on our movement.

Today We Host Another Micro Twitterthon

For every new follower of @abolishcancer today, @Broelovindivas will donate $1 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to help fight cancer. (up to $500). @abolishcancer starts the day with 50,270 followers.

@abolishcancer started Twitterthons in November of 2009 with the hopes of raising $ and awareness in the fight against cancer. Little did we realize that 16 months later, we would have raised $49,000 for various cancer charities by simply tweeting and following on Twitter. While most of our Twitterthon sponsorships exceed $2,000 we decided to dedicate the month of February to smaller “micro” Twitterthons to allow more people to be involved. Today concludes our micro Twitterthons with the support from @Broelovindivas.

About today's sponsor

Here is how today’s sponsor best describes their site…..

“The Broelovindivas site is in support of the Brady and Chloe pairing from Days of Our Lives. One of their big storylines was the leukemia storyline, where Chloe had cancer. There are many of us that support this pairing and the cause of finding a cure for leukemia. So many of us Broe fans have seen, unfortunately, firsthand what this can do. In a way, we look for the hero (Brady) in our own lives. We want to help this cause because of our devotion to their story, the fans that support them and lost the battle with cancer and leukemia, for Nadia Bjorlin's (Chloe's portrayer) own personal cause, and those still fighting this horrible disease. We hope what we raise during this twitterthon will help find a cure.”

We appreciate @Broelovindivas sponsorship today and the opportunity to raise more awareness and support to end this disease. Contact us at abolishcancer if you would like to partner.

“Power of the People, To UNITE, To @abolishcancer”
