TechCrunch writer Drew Olanoff, a cancer survivor himself, is trying to raise funds for childhood cancer charity Alex's Lemonade Stand in suburban Philadelphia.
I turned 33 yesterday, an age that I wasn’t sure I’d hit when I was diagnosed with cancer. I’ve been in remission for three years and I feel great, except that others have to struggle way worse than I did. Before I was diagnosed, I raised money for childhood cancer by “auctioning off” space on my body for a tattoo. Not any tattoo, though, it was a Twitter handle for whomever donated the most. The high bid and donation was $2,112 and it was a success, and of course I got the tattoo. You can read all about it here if you like.
For Alex, and for children everywhere battling cancer, I’m doing it again. This time, the money goes right to Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Even if you don’t want to hop into a battle for real-estate on my body in tattoo form, every little bit counts.
