Fundraiser for Sandi Rog!

Imagine you're a mom of four, living with MS, still readjusting to life in the states after years spent abroad, and finally seeing a dream come true. The book you've researched for years and poured your soul into is finally, today, being released into the world. After all the struggles of moving, of helping children acclimate, of learning a new city, of juggling motherhood and family and writing, you get to celebrate the realization of a dream.

And on that same day, your doctor tells you to come in right away--you have stage 4 T-cell lymphoma, possibly caused by the medication you've been taking for MS.

This is what happened to Sandi Rog on November 1, 2010. For the last year, Sandi has endured chemo, radiation, and a bone marrow transplant, with the hope of destroying this aggressive cancer. And then, just a few weeks before the release of her second book, new tumors were discovered near her spine that show the cancer has not succumbed the way we had all hoped.

So now, in the face of the holiday season, the Rog family finds themselves settling in for another year of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual battle as Sandi faces more treatments--one of which holds much promise but is not covered by insurance. As you can imagine, the financial cost of fighting cancer can be overwhelming, and that's the reason for this fundraiser.

I'll be giving away one character assessment and all FOUR of my Writer's Guides to one raffle prize winner, but there are tons of others prizes up for grabs. Click here for a taste of all the available raffle prizes! There are some GREAT prizes, including editing packages worth a whole lot!

To purchase a raffle ticket, go to and make a donation. Every $5 you donate will purchase you one raffle ticket. Starting November 25th, one awesome gift basket will be posted per day. To enter the drawing for the basket, leave a comment on the post. Want to enter more than once on the basket you really want? In your comment, note how many "tickets" you're spending. (Raffle draers will be able to track through how many tickets you purchased.) Note that, once your ticket has been "spent," you won't get it back if you don't win. (Just like a raffle with physical tickets--once you enter it in a drawing, your ticket is gone.) The comments will close at midnight; comments left after that time will not be counted. will be used to choose the winner and their name will be posted the next day.

So please show some love to the Rog family as they face this hurdle called cancer. You'll be blessed because you gave.

The latest Jenny B Jones book, There You'll Find Me, is up for grabs on my blog! Giveaway ends Sunday, so click here!
