Lindsay wrote an extraordinary press release about Christina Williams and her battle with ovarian cancer.  Well written with a great message of early detection being key.  Lindsay writes "Christina’s passion manifest within each of us and by continuing to spread the truth about ovarian cancer, we will keep her voice and her spirit alive within our own communities and forever in our hearts."  

Great job Lindsay!  Your Kodak Extreme Digital Pack is on its way!

The Extra, Extra contest brought in a boatload of wonderful entries highlighting amazing members of ActiveRain.  Many of you stated this was your first time writing a press release; a challenge pushing you to try something new.  I have to say, you folks did a wonderful job!  Your releases were insightful, well written and informative. 

Don't stop writing now just because the challenge has ended....keep it never know who will read it!

Any type of cancer is difficult to deal with. The most important part is to be aware because early detection saves lives!!!

And thanks AR - I did write my first press release (and have a courage to request local community newspaper for my real estate related articles - hope to see it in print...)

Wow, I don't think I've ever read so much positivity in one place. I really do appreciate all of your kind words. I stepped away from the rain for about two years due to some fun (not really) personal stuff. I had posted listings here and there but never got too involved until recently. The first thing I did was go check up on Christina, just like old times. I had no idea she had died and I felt ill for not being able to support her or encourage her during such a sever battle. She was really the first person I befriended on AR. I refuse to unsubscribe to her blog and am reminded of her daily as I log in. She had a beautiful spirit and that's something I will never forget.
