A Way You Can Help

I hope you can make it to the Cansler “Y” on Jessamine Street tomorrow (Thursday) at ten. We’re kicking off a huge research project, and America needs about a half-million volunteers.

 

It won’t cost you a dime, but the study might help scientists crack some codes and unlock cancer secrets.It’s a long term project that will mainly consist of surveys.

 

My mother died of melanoma.  Knowing what we do now about that form of cancer, she might have lived to see her grandchildren grow.

Prostate cancer killed my dad.  Now, it’s a highly survivable form of cancer..because of research.

You know I’ve survived bladder and colon cancer.  Either one of them could have killed me without the medical knowledge we now possess.

Will we ever be able to prevent all forms of cancer?  I don’t know.   Will we be able to detect all forms of cancer earlier?  I would bet on it.  As a matter of fact, I do bet on it…with my life. 

Knowledge is power.  Power to make decisions in treatment and medication, power to be an informed patient and medical staff, and power to maybe stick around on this spinning sphere of carbon and oxygen a little longer.
