Joan Marineau $50 "Hello, I was at a "girls night out" function in West Palm Beach Fl. They were selling paw prints with Wearethecure.org. I had never heard of the organization, however I love all animals especially dogs so I bought it and came home and researched it. Yours was the first story I read. It touched my heart since I just lost my baby boy Sam this year at age 13. It wasn't to cancer, it was congestive heart failure...too big a heart the eve of Valentines day plus he had been the tin man for halloween last year. This donation and my compassion sent your way. Warmly, Joan",
