Another cancer story…tomorrow

You people have been marvelous, and our cancer fundraiser has reached over $8300 — and I said I’d tell you about oncomirs, micro RNAs involved in cancer, when we reached $7500. But it’s been a very long week, I’m going to go pass out, so it’ll have to wait until tomorrow. If you throw more …

$6672? MORE!


We’re still idling along, raising money for Light the Night and our battle against cancer. I promised another post on mechanisms of cancer when we hit $7500 — you don’t want me lying about, doin’ nothin’, growing fat(ter) on the government teat, do you? Make me work, reach our next goal. The current sum doesn’t …

We’re getting up there

The FtB cancer fundraiser has picked your pockets for $6352 so far. Did you all have a payday on the first of the month? Feel like kicking in a little more? If the Republicans got you furloughed from your job, I’m sorry, we can wait for them to get their butts kicked by the court …

Cancer reminder!

I don’t want you to forget just because it has scrolled off the first page, but Freethoughtblogs is fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We’ve raised $5887 so far, but we’re aiming for $10,000…and I’ve also promised another cancer biology post if we reach $7500. So cough up if you can! Another important fact: …

What are tumor suppressor genes?


I’m trying to raise money for the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and I promised to do a few things if we reached certain goals. I said I’d write a post explaining what tumor suppressor genes are, while wearing a pirate hat and nothing else, if we raised $5000. Shiver me timbers, I did! And …

No one “lets” the #FtBullies win!

In a post at Skepchick announcing new incentives for their cancer fundraiser, Melanie Mallon says, “We can’t let the #FTBullies win!” Don’t worry, we’re sitting here on top of over $5000 raised for the Light the Night foundation, and no one has to let us win. We shall seize victory in our iron grip and …

You’re going to make me work again, aren’t you?

Donations to the Light the Night Fundraiser are getting awfully close to the next landmark of $5000; we’re at $4748. Get there and I’m going to have to write a post about tumor suppressors, and I know you’re all just panting away with lust for that. Then there’s a long stretch to $10K, so maybe …

What are oncogenes?


I’m trying to raise money for the The Leukemia &amp Lymphoma Society, and I promised to do a few things if we reached certain goals. I said I’d write a post explaining what oncogenes are, while wearing a pirate hat, if we raised $2500. So here you go, arrr. If you want more, go to …

Skepchick joins the race

When I announced our participation in the Light the Night fundraising drive, I mentioned that another network would be joining in, too, and that we might have to set up another challenge award for beating them. Well, here they are: Skepchick has formed a team, and since our goal is to raise $10,000, they’ve set …

The money is trickling in

If you check out my fundraising page for the Light the Night charity, you’ll see that we broke $1000 today — we’re at $1850. It’s not enough. My obligations don’t even begin to kick in until we hit $2500, so you’ll have to do more. Also, nag Ed: he still hasn’t committed to what he’ll …
