A few months ago I suggested we organized a league wide jersey auction with fan from each CFL city organizing a raffle and donating all the proceeds to a cancer charity in your city.
I have to apologize,for this, I am not able to fullfill my organizational duties and I am postponing the league wide raffle until next season.
About a month after I sent out the invitation for CFL fans to get started organizing the perspective raffles my fiance and I found out her dad had a relapse in his cancer.
Long story short it's in-operable and untreatable because he had a stroke 5 years ago and surgury or treatment could likely kill him.
Since that time, Natalia my fiance, and myself have decided to move our wedding date from April 2007 to October 2006. Subsequently my time has been consumed making plans for the wedding, planning my school year (I'm a Special Ed teacher) and address another family situation on my side.
For those of you who have initiated the raffle, please continue and I will be happy to lend my and the CFL Fans Fight Cancer name to your efforts if it will help. Let us know the cancer charity your helping and how much you've raised.
For now, we are putting this on hold, and will start out stronge next season. I will be at Grey Cup in Winnipeg so if any of you would like to meet up and get a jump on brainstorming ideas for next season that would be great.
For now, keep up the good fight and don't let this stop the CFL fan community from "Kicking cancer through the uprights!"
My sincere apologies!
