The poem Celebrate, Remember, and Fight Back... written for the 2008 Relay For Life

Cutting hair and raising money
In 2003, I held a fund raiser by promising to cut
my 14" pony-tail in the fight against cancer. For
every $100 raised, I would have an inch cut off.
In total over $1,500 was raised in the fight
against cancer. The story made the newspapers
under the title Symbolic Support and my poem
Day One became my "calling card."
The hair that was cut, was than donated to
Locks of Love.
Dreams of cancer poetry...
turned to music
One continuing dream of mine is turning 10-12 of my
poems about cancer into music. The first song for
this project is A Thousand Times. The band Moes
Haven turned my words into music and than I created
this video as a Mother's Day gift for my ex-wife.
This has been a long and frustrating journey but one
which I haven't given up on just yet. Got to keep
dreaming... someday this project will become a

More news from Mom's Pit Crew
The following mini-bio about myself appears on Laura Yaklin's website - Mom's Pit Crew. "Dave Harm is a published
author from Nebraska. His poetry and articles bring to life the reality of some of life's greatest struggles. His work is a
true witness that with hope and courage we can all be survivors. His wife, Betty, is a 7 year survivor of breast cancer. He
was kind enough to allow us to use this poem in our upcoming cookbook "Cooking For A Cure". He is also going to put a
link to our Team Page at the ACS Relay For Life site in his website. Thanks Dave! You're the best!"
The poem they have chosen to use is Relay For Survivors It has been one of my most read poems at various American
Cancer Society events. In 2005 this poem was read across the United States and parts of Canada. It will now be shown
in a fund-raising cook book for Clio, Michigan's annual Relay For Life event. To learn more about this publication, please
visit Mom's Pit Crew. Buy a book or make a donation. If not there, make one to your local Relay For Life event. And if
you've never been to one of these events - please do so, it is truly a spiritual experience.
This is a poem that just doesn't seem to disappear. After the use of it by Mom's Pit Crew, I made a video of it. The
pictures of the event were taken at the 2007 Gage County Relay For Life event. The video even seems to be a hit, as a
couple of sites use it on their own pages.
I'm still learning how to make videos and apologize for the "stuttering" at the beginning of this video. All I can say is it's an
educational process. Make it past the first 10-15 seconds and the rest is fine.
Purple Power CD helps launch a new Relay For Life event...
Lathrop, California will have its first Relay For Life event in 2009 and Purple
Power will be part of the festivities.
