Cancer - Know It. Fight It. End It.

I have a friend who is battling cancer. Some of you know about this, and others don't. To refresh your memory or learn about it and my feelings on the matter, check out Stop and Smell the Roses and Pick up the Pace.

There also is a link on the side of my page where you can learn more about Pancreatic cancer.

I received an email this morning asking me to take a challenge and I want to extend this invitation to those out in blogland. Here's a portion of that email......

Pancreatic cancer isn't getting the attention it deserves–not from the federal government and not from medical researchers. Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the U.S. The number of cases is increasing, but the investment in research for early detection, effective treatment options and eventually a cure lags far behind the other leading cancer killers.

The challenge:
Help the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network find 8,120 people to join us in the fight against pancreatic cancer to match the 8,120 people who will be diagnosed between now and the end of National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month this November. Let’s grow the community of support for those facing pancreatic cancer by growing the number of people who know about it and are committed to helping fight it and end it. For each person who is diagnosed with pancreatic cancer between now and the end of November we’ll add one more name to the list of people standing up for them.

If you stop by and read this, please take a moment to join me in this challenge.

Know It. Fight It. End It.

You can also grab the button to help spread the word. It will take you to the petition site as well!

Thank you!!!!

Until next time...
