Maurice's Main Street Model

I was accepted to be a part of the Maurices Main Street Model Search!  WOO!  I am so excited about this opportunity because it's for a good cause. 

As you may know, 14 years ago my dad died of Colon Cancer and every 5 years I have to get screened myself.  According to a study by the American Cancer Society, removing non-cancerous polyps during colonoscopies resulted in 53% fewer deaths than would be expected from a group similar in race, age, and gender in the general population.  In fact, having colonoscopies and removing the polyps was pretty much the same as not ever having any polyps at all!  You can read more about Colon Cancer on the American Cancer Society's website here.

Here are the details about the contest - if I win, Maurice's will donate $7,500 to the American Cancer Society!  You can vote for me here once every 24 hours.  So please please please VOTE!
