Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma in the news

Catholic Central High in Novi [MI?] to host 10k/5k run, 5k walk and fun run April 12, 2008 Goal: Raise Money for Rare Cancer http://www.expertclick.com/NewsReleaseWire/default.cfm?Action=ReleaseDetail&ID=20786
This Live Like Andi Run, Walk & Fun Run fundraiser is in memory of Andi O'Connell, and includes a high-heel race. Her children will be selling cheetah colored wristbands that say "Live Like Andi", since in Andi's opinion, "cheetah print IS a color". The funds will be going to the Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma Research Foundation.
(Added 3/27/08) Another news story about Andi: http://hometownlife.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080327/NEWS19/803270634/1036

They have a website for her foundation: The Live Like Andi Foundation http://www.livelikeandi.org/. The logo - yep, it includes a cheetah ribbon. Man, I hope I continue to live like Andi - I bet she would have approved of the Golden Scion and my Gypsy bike that now reside in my garage!

This is a follow-up to an earlier story that I had posted last August: http://cheekylibrarian.blogspot.com/2007/08/news-that-we-have-lost-fellow-adenoid.html
