I lost one of my closest family members to pancreatic cancer in 2010, and I still feel the sting from their diagnosis. In 2011, the rest of the world also suffered at its hands, when Steve Jobs passed away in October at only 56 years of age. Cancer doesn’t care who or how old you are; it’s a terrible disease, and I am proud to fight it.
To help me, sign up for GTPlanet Premium membership between now and 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time on December 25, 2011.
You can join for as little as $12.00 USD, and 100% of your subscription fee will be donated to fight pancreatic cancer, via the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
If you’re already a subscriber or would just like to spread the cheer, gift Premium membership to your friends. Just click their username above any of their posts and select “Give GTPremium”. They’ll have a very nice surprise waiting for them the next time they sign in, and you’ll have brought the world one step closer to defeating this disease.
Thanks to all of you who can support our efforts again this year. Have a great Christmas, and enjoy your Premium membership in 2012!
UPDATE: The numbers are in, and I’m very excited to report GTPlanet’s users raised $997.00 (I bumped the total donation up to $1,000, of course!) for pancreatic cancer research in just two days, with a record-breaking 55 new Premium subscribers. This is an incredible result, and I couldn’t be more greatful to all of you who helped contribute. Thank you!
