Calendar models deserve respect

Using Randy Dyer’s word, I am “appalled” and disgusted by his equating charity fund-raising with criminal acts (Forum, Dec. 22. “Appalled by calendar models”).

These women have been volunteering for years to raise thousands of dollars through car washes, bake sales, silent auctions and more. These dollars are going directly to cancer research labs and doctors. In 2004 alone, Phi Beta Psi nationally granted $284,000.

I am thankful for these volunteers and any other group that helps to find the cure for dread diseases. Maybe the next dollar given to one of these organizations may find the cure for the cancer that took my father, my mother and Mr. Dyer’s sister.

Just what have you done, Mr. Dyer, to raise money for cancer research?
