During the month of September, Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are holding a “Text-a-Thon for a Cause” to help raise support for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund whose mission is to fund research to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.
Throughout September, you can donate $5 to the cause by texting “KELLY” to 85944 from your mobile phones (standard text messaging rates apply) – or logging on to http://www.kelly-confidential.com. Also, every time you log on to the Web site, you’ll be entered for a chance to win an amazing contribution to your home – a luxury front load washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color inspired by the teal ribbon of ovarian cancer awareness.
This mission means a lot to me and my family right now. My cousin who is only 28 recently underwent surgery to have all of her reproductive organs removed due to cancer. It was a hard and trying experience for her and her husband. I continue to pray for her physical and emotional recovery.
