Birthdays, we all have them. Some of us love the attention and some of us, well, wish we could skip the whole thing.
No matter how you feel, you can use your birthday to fight cancer.
Ask your friends and family to donate what they would have spent on your birthday present or ask them to donate your age in dollars.
Simply set up your fundraising page, send it around and your gifts become a gift for others.

After David survived non Hodgkins lymphoma, he and his wife Alicia decided to give up their 30th birthdays and hosted an 80s themed party to help fight cancer.
“We thought given what I’d been through it was a great opportunity to raise some money for the Cancer Council”, David told us. “I think it’s something that hits the core of people and they’re happy to help.”
“We really didn’t want presents, need presents… and I think if people are going to be spending money, you may as well put it towards a worthwhile cause.” Alicia added.
David and Alicia asked their guests to make a donation in lieu of giving presents and raised $8,735 for cancer!
