As most of you know, last fall my sister-in-law was diagnosed with colon cancer (due to a genetic condition). I am happy to say that as of right now she has completed her treatment and is doing well. :)

This summer, my family and I are participating in a 5K to support the Colon Cancer Alliance. According to their website:

"The Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) is the oldest and largest national patient advocacy organization dedicated to ending the suffering caused by colorectal cancer. In order to increase rates of screening and survivorship, the CCA provides patient support, public education, supports research and conducts advocacy work across America.

As the Voice of Survivors, the CCA works as an advocate for colorectal cancer patients and their families. The CCA offers information and support from the first-hand experience of survivors and others whose lives have been touched by this disease."

Please consider joining me in support of this cause. Click here to donate!

Also, for those who may have missed it, here is my post from last year about St. Jude and other charitable organizations I support.

The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

~ Matthew 25:40, TNIV

A while back I posted a poll with several ideas for LJ posts that I had rolling around in my head, to see which my flist would most prefer to read. The topic of this post received the second-highest number of votes, and I think it an appropriate topic to bring up now, as we are entering the time of year when charitable giving is often on people's minds. Also, in hard times it's more important than ever to remember those who are in need—even if it's also more of a sacrifice to give.

Below is a brief description of three charitable organizations that I support and believe are worthy.

Of course, these are just a few of the organizations that do excellent charitable work. I hope you will consider carefully what you can do to help those in the world who are less fortunate.
