Fantasy Faire Is Almost Here!

Why I RelayRelay For Life is something that I have been involved with in Second Life for many years now, on many different levels.  One of my favorite RFL events of the year is the Fantasy Faire, which opens tomorrow at 9 AM SLT!  I am proud and honored to be one of the official Fantasy Faire bloggers for this year.  Fantasy Faire has asked its bloggers to do a couple of blog challenges to help foster the community.  This post is Why I Relay.

I relay for many reasons, but the main one is that I can, while so may others can’t.  Like many of us, I’ve had people close to me who have heard the dreaded words telling them that they have cancer.  Some are still with us, but others are not.  One of my good Second Life friends was Madame Maracas.  We lost Maddie to cancer on September 8, 2010.  I have since set up a memorial park in her honor in-world, and enjoy going there to visit and see the photos of her.  I also have an aunt out in California who is currently beating the odds.  Six years ago, she was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer.  She is still with us, and actually I will get to see her and her husband next week.  I can’t wait to talk to her and see how she’s doing.

The Battlemage

The avatar that I am wearing is comprised almost entirely of items from this year’s Fantasy Faire, with many of them being Relay For Life donation items.  In addition, the gorgeous gazebo that I’m standing in is also new for the Faire, and was built by Sharni Azalee, who sponsored, designed, and built the Ichi-go Ichi-e sim at the Faire this year.  Full credits are below!  Since the Faire is not yet open, though, I’m not allowed to provide SLURLs to the sims.  I will go back through tomorrow once the sims open and add those.
