Calling All Jazz Fans

A3M (Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches) annual fundraising event, Starnight, will feature jazz pianist Keiko Matsui. Tickets are still available for as little as $47 for this November 2 event at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts.

If you'd like to splurge, consider the VIP package with dinner, a silent auction and the concert. I've been helping with the auction descriptions for the bid sheets and can tell you that there are some amazing items. If you're interested in seeing Celine Dion, the Cheetah Girls, the Ducks or the Bruins in luxury box seats at the Honda Center, send me an email (susancarrier@sbcglobal.net), and I'll give you more details. If you like, I can bid on your behalf.

Even though "Asians" is in the name of the organization, they work tirelessly to sign up all minorities for the National Bone Marrow Registry. I'm excited because they just hired a Spanish-speaking representative to do outreach and recruitment in the Latino community.

Hi Susan,

I made a vow to GET OFF THE COMPUTER late at night, and then I started reading your blog from the bottom up and I got mesmerized! It's really great. It's also interesting to look back and see your posts about watching your blood counts go up and down, which is kind of where I am at this point. I stopped at May 2007 and will pick up tommorrow.

Love ya!!!

Ronni, Glad you're finding the blog "mesmerizing." I'm glad I kept it because it's surprising how much I've forgotten.

Robert, Aw shucks. I'm really proud of my dirt clod throwing skills. (And, ya' know what - I never hear anyone in So Cal talk about "dirt clods," even among my gardening circles.)
