Pink Well Challenge-October 11-Oct. 14, 2011-On October 11th through the 14th you can go on the Pink Well Challenge 
website, FACEBOOK, and Twitter to vote for Circle of Hope, Duluth. We are 1 of the 155 organizations nominated for 
The Ellen DeGeneres Pink WellAward/$25,000.00 sponsored by The Smith Foundation. Nominated organizations can get from
 you up to 10 votes per day PER PERSON. WE NEED YOUR 10 VOTES. (Remember how we got 375 votes for Stay Classy? 
We were invited to San Diego! 
We were a qualifier but we didn't make it to the next level. Next year we will be prepared with videos and all the rest.) You can
 vote for multiple organizations on the Pink Well Challenge but we want to win! 
------We provide payments for breast cancer patients bills in financial distress and poverty in northern MN and northern 
Wisconsin. (Our board does not pay themselves a salary, nor do I as the secretary or coordinator of this website and activities. 
Our favorite word is a four letter word, "FREE." We are a grass roots organization of volunteers, many breast cancer survivors. 
We laugh a lot, it's better than feeling sad or crying for our friends who have died of breast cancer.
-------We all want to make a difference in the lives of others, and the money is paid directly to the provider based on 
confidential criteria. We totally follow Hippa rules.
-------On Oct. 11th, Lester Smith, creater of the Pink Well Challenge is appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk 
about his challenge and his new book, "You Gotta Dance Like No One's Watching." You can't miss this show. \
http://www.pinkwell.orghttp://www.gottadance.org. Listen to Gloria Gaynor's song, "I Will Survive" under our 
resources tab on our website. It is a song that is sung every year at The National Breast Cancer Coalition conference, 
a number #1 organization in this country. (The NBCC count down to end breast cancer in this country is on our Board of Directors page.)
------We need to end breast cancer, all 32 kinds by 2020. Enough is enough.)
------In the mean time back at the ranch, we need to serve and help patients. Patients should be first, above all else. You shouldn't have
cancer, then be plagued with depression over how you are going to pay for it as you get one call after another.  That's what Circle of Hope 
does. We pay for breast cancer treatment bills of patients with no insurance, high deductible, low income,  those who have been turned into
collection, and the list goes on.
------You can help us and together we can make a difference in the lives of others. Let these patients, say, "I Will Survive," 
"I will Dance Because I Survived Cancer and The Bills That Came With It." Life should be a celebration. Let everyone celebrate 
as "Each Day is a Gift."
