Submitted by

bblboy54 writes "Last month a Twitter user, Susan Reynolds, was surprisingly diagnosed with breast cancer. This came as a shock not only to her but her friends in the twitter community. She started a blog called Boobs on Ice to communicate her struggle with cancer. In her blog she mentioned using a bad of frozen peas to help with the pain she was experiencing. One thing led to another and The Frozen Pea Fund was started by members of the twitter community pulling together. The Washington Post is now reporting that the organization has raised over $7,000 for the American Cancer Society. It's refreshing to see some of this new Web 2.0 technology being used for extremely great causes."
