  • TC Survivor in Swing-Dance-a-Thon - Donate now! :)

    Hi everyone,

    I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in March of this year. Thankfully, my cancer has been in remission since having surgery, but not everyone who gets diagnosed with cancer is so fortunate.

    On November 5th, I will be participating in the 24 Hour Cancer Dance-a-thon, a swing dance to raise money for cancer research. All proceeds will go to The City of Hope, a premier cancer research hospital ( ). The money I raise will be used for promoting awareness, healing and research.

    Thank you to all those who have donated - your contribution is very much
    appreciated! Please forward this message to someone whom you think might
    be willing to contribute.


    Make a donation on behalf of me and my team. It's easy. You just use your credit card for ANY amount. PLEASE DONATE BY NOVEMBER 5TH.

    My Participant Name is: Leonard Cachola
    My Team Name is: Swingpit Survivors

    Amount my team has raised so far: $2265
    Goal amount: $3000
    Days left to donate: 5

    Go to this website and fill out the little donation box.



    Participating dancers organize into teams. It's like a relay, with at least one dancer from every team on the dance floor throughout the 24 hours. There will be live bands, dance lessons, dance contests, performances, and open dancing. This effort is a fun way to celebrate survivors, bring awareness to the community, and remember those that have passed away from cancer.

    Feel free to join in the fun - you don't even have to know how to swing dance! There will be lessons and people to help you at the Dance-a-thon. It starts 10:00 am Saturday, November 5, 2005 and goes all the way until 10:00 am Sunday, November 6, 2005. The event will be held at:

    Boys and Girls Club in Irvine
    295 East Yale Loop
    Irvine, California 92604


    If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

    Thank you for your help with this great cause,
