If you have been following my blog, you may have read in my last post that I attended a workshop on Self-Publishing. At that workshop, I met several people who are also interested in self-publishing. Three of those people are working on a book titled: Cancer Crossing. They asked me to participate by telling my story of my journey with Dad and his cancer but from a caregivers perspective. I also offered to help with the personal interviews as those are skills I have as part of the work I do. I'm not sure if they will need that kind of assistance but I will be glad to help in whatever way I can.
I can, however, help by passing on this message from Sherry who is one of the co-authors of the book. Here is her message:
Good day, everyone!
You know me, always working on a project! I am currently collaborating on a book 'Cancer Crossing’ with five others. 100% of the net proceeds from the book sales will be directed towards cancer patient support services.
We have entered our project in the Aviva Community Fund Competition and we need your vote! I have included a link to the site/our submission below for your ease in learning more. You can vote once a day from November 12-26. It is easy to log in via Facebook. If you don't have Facebook, it is simple to register on the Aviva site and support our cause. PLEASE HELP US BY VOTING EVERYDAY UNTIL NOVEMBER 26TH!!
Aviva Community Fund
I will be sending out reminder e-mails so please don't 'disown me!'. It's a great cause and if you or anyone you know has been touched by cancer, you know how needed this is. Please spread the word to your family and friends, too. Together we can make a difference for cancer patients while we all wait for a cure.
If you have any questions, please come my way. Warm regards and thank you for your support,
All Sherry is asking is that if you or someone you know was/is touched by cancer, you will take the time in the next two weeks to cast your vote for this project. You can read on the Aviva site how much the winners will receive. So one vote per day for the next two weeks could help this team win. And if you can share the link with others, that would be much appreciated too. I've already cast my vote for today and intend to do so until Nov 26.
