Dear Friends of Life with Cancer,

I'd be so grateful  if you could vote for Inova Life With Cancer in the Washington Redskins and Papa Johns "Season of Giving" campaign, no later than September 30.

With football season kicking into high gear, we're so excited to be one of the featured charities. Your vote will help fund one of our most critical programs that helps women in our community fighting breast cancer and provides vital support and resources to their families--at no cost to them.

Here's how you can help. Go to the Washington Redskins website, scroll down until you see the box labeled "Papa John's Season of Giving," and vote for Inova Life with Cancer.

Thank you so much for all of your help. I can't tell you how much we appreciate you taking the time to vote for us in a time where every dollar counts.

In Gratitude,
Sage Bolte, Ph.D
