Blogging with Love

Yes, it’s that time of year again: Breast Cancer awareness month. Wherever you are, I doubt very much that you are unaware of breast cancer, but maybe you need to be reminded to join up or donate to Dr. Susan Love's Research Foundation Army of Women Program, which helps scientists in their quest to locate the cause of this disease and eradicate it from our planet forevermore.
            On October 1,  the Foundation is launching a new research initiative and you can be part of it. The Health of Women Study is a new revolutionary project that aims to find out why breast cancer occurs and how we can prevent it. Please click on the link to visit the website and sign up to participate.  The HOW Study is a first-of-its-kind international online study that will collect information from women and men with and without a history of breast cancer. The questionnaires are filled out online.  
            The problem (among many others) about breast cancer (and cancer in general), a club that I personally belong to (since even if you’re a “survivor” as I am you must be “on the lookout” for the rest of your life), is that it has so many members and discriminates against no one. Breast cancer will gladly accept your mother, your daughter, your best friend, your wife, your grandmother, your sister, and even your son (yes, some men are also accepted into the breast cancer sorority). Believe me, it’s a club that you don’t want to get into, but chances are you know one or more of its members. We seem to be everywhere. I know more women who have had breast cancer than I care to count. And the list keeps growing.
            Have we so severely poisoned our planet and ourselves with various toxins that we will never find a cure for this and other cancers? I believe not. And as an avid reader of heath-related materials, I know that there are many brilliant minds working on the cure. Dr. Susan Love’s Research Foundation Army Of Women Program is a crucial part of this movement, and I hope that you will choose to help support this cause and effort in any way you can. The HOW Study is a great way to get involved.

            Thank you!
