Do you HAVE to format a memory card?

Alright, do you absolutely have to format the memory card when it tells you too, or is there a way to keep all your data? I ask this because I only have one memory card, and a lot of data from a lot of games that I either beat or am so close to beating it isn't funny. This also happens to be the memory card that apparently need to be formatted, and I definitely don't want that to happen.

Okay, this is what I usually do:

If the GameCube tells you it needs to be formatted, turn of the console, take out the memory card, GENTLY blow into the Memory Card, and insert it back in. Turn on the console again.

I know most people would say that bloing into anything is a no-go, but I've been doing this for 6 years. If it doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you... D:
