Please click a button to help Casey, a cancer sufferer.

In a previous post, I talked about, Casey, a cancer sufferer currently undergoing chemo, who I first heard about courtesy of my friend dferguson

Even though Casey has no hair and will soon lose a leg, she entered an online competition to win a 3-day trip to New York, courtesy of Victoria's Secret.  Contestants have to post a picture of themselves, along with a brief note on why they love their body. 
The winner is the person who gets the most online votes.  You can vote every day.

I can't prove this, but when I voted yesterday, I could have sworn she was in first place, not only that, but I was sure that she had thousands more votes (almost twice as many) as the regular girl in the second spot.

For some reason though, as of this morning, Casey has slipped into second place, some six thousand votes behind that same person.  Maybe I made a mistake - though I don't believe so.
Call me a cynic, but as of a few minutes before posting this, the current leader (who I'm sure is a pleasant enough girl, but who seems no different to any of the other contestants) has 155,381 votes, Casey is now in second  place with 148,460 votes and third place has only 4,715.

UPDATE:  As of 6:30am (US/Eastern) on September 7th  Casey has 266,780, the girl in first place now has 309,848 and the girl in third place has just 4,836

Something's not right about here. 

In any case, if you can spare a moment, please follow
this link and click to vote for Casey.  If you can add the link to your favorites, so you can vote for her every day, that would be great .  If you'd like to post a link on your own blog, to encourage others to do the same as you, that would be fantastic.  

As I've said before, I doubt any of us will ever meet Casey, but how often do we get a chance to make a positive difference to someone's life with a mere click of a mouse?

Thanks for reading.
