Greg Hammond is raising money for breast cancer research today through a comment-a-thon. Greg and his friends and sponsors will be contributing $1 per comment on this post between 12:01 AM PST and 11:59 PM PST to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. All you have to do to help is drop by, the sponsors are picking up the check!
For those of you who don't know the Hammond's story, Greg's wife Cheryl fought breast cancer on and off (mostly on) for almost 5 years before she passed away last spring. Their story is inspiring and Cheryl and Greg's courage in raising their young family in the face of such a monstrous battle is something I don't think I'd be strong enough to do.
Greg hopes to raise $1385 for the first 500 commenters. There are 144 comments right now, so please drop by and leave him a note.

Update: I sent the link to he who needs no linkage, hope Greg gets an Instalanche!
Update II: at 8:25 EST Greg was at 499! There are more sponsors willing to donate for comments up to 1000! The page loads slow and so does the pop-up, so you might try this link for the post and comments on a single page.
Update III: Greg (at 514 already!!!) has set up a second post so that you don't have to fight with a slow loading page. Go here to donate now!
This post will stay on top until the comment-a-thon is over.
