Electrolux Text-a-Thon for Ovarian Cancer

Many years ago (over 15 years), my aunt was diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer.  It's a time I'll never forget.  Due to the tumor she had, she literally looked 9 months pregnant.  I now know way more about cancer than I ever wanted to know.  She went through various treatment but fought it for many years and many remissions and recurrences.  She went from doctor to doctor and even tried cancer treatment centers.

That's why I have to tell you about the partnership between Electrolux and Kelly Ripa.  They are kicking off a unique “Text-a-Thon for a Cause” to support the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Moms can donate $5 to the cause by texting “KELLY” to 85944 from their mobile phones (standard text messaging rates apply) – or by logging on to www.kelly-confidential.com.  If you go to the site, you can also enter for a chance to win a luxury frontload washer and dryer from Electrolux in Turquoise Sky, the color of ovarian cancer awareness.  (Mom Central will also be giving away a set too).  You can also send a virtual T-shirt to a friend.  For each T-shirt sent, Electrolux will donate $1 to the OCRF. You can also purchase a limited edition T-shirt designed by Kelly Ripa; 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the T-shirts will go to OCRF.

Here's Kelly's PSA on such a great topic:

You never know when (aff) cancer will strike you, your family, or someone you know, so please take a few moments of your time, to help with this cause.

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Electrolux and received a gift certificate to thank me for taking the time to participate.”
