So, here we are. The night before the big event. Theres still so much to do before 3pm tomorrow, but I wanted to take a minute to remind you all to come out and join us at AIR, 518 foreland St on Pittsburgh's Northside, for the BRICKS for Young Adults Cancer Awareness & Resource Guide release party!

This is the culmination of 6 months of hard work. I can hardly believe its here, and that I did it. SO many hours, so many helpers, so many stories and emails and on and on and on and all worth every single minute. The booklets look great, the posters (shown above) are out of this world. So many people came together to help make this vision a reality. I am eternally grateful. If I was able to do this much, in such a short amount of time, who knows what the future holds!! I feel really optimistic about BRICKS and proud of what we've accomplished so far.

In addition to bands and booklet contributors, we will have information and/or representatives from Gilda's Club, the Cancer Caring Center, Central Blood Bank, Be Well! Pgh, and the Sprout Fund on hand. Its a great opportunity to collect information and learn about these amazing organizations in our city, all doing such important work.

Details of the event are below, hope to see you all tomorrow!!!
