Raul – I first met Raul virtually during last year’s blogathon. Since that time we’ve become good friends on and offline and he’s catapulted into Vancouver’s social media realm with enthusiasm and a bright spirit that everyone can appreciate.

Dr. Raul and Me

Raul’s website: Hummingbird604
Raul’s cause: BC Cancer Foundation
Raul’s Blogathon Motivation: “I struggled a long time to decide what charity I would choose, but I recently learned from my mother that her sister (my Aunt) had been battling cancer for a while now. I have lost both my Grandmother and my Mom’s only other sister (who was like my second mother) to cancer, currently one of my local friends is afflicted with it, and with the news of my aunt’s illness, I have decided to fully dedicate my Blogathon 2008 efforts to the British Columbia Cancer Agency, and to undertake Blogathon in memory of my late Aunt, my Grandmother and to motivate and encourage the people I care for to keep fighting, especially my Aunt.” [Hummingbird604]

    You know how much I treasure your friendship. I wouldn’t have done Blogathon either year (2007 AND 2008) if it hadn’t been for your encouragement. You are a role model and I am very proud of you, for all reasons, but mostly, because you are a wonderful human being whom I’m honored to call a good friend 🙂
