Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer

October 5, 2006 at 2:59 am (Uncategorized)

My sister, Tina, is doing the 3 day walk in November for Breast Cancer. She has been preparing since the beginning of the year. She has been attending meetings, plugging the donation effort and she’s just really psyched about the whole effort.

If you would like to donate to her cause and the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Association, click here. For more information on the actual date of the walk, go to the Arizona home page.

    And for all those guys out there who don’t think it’s “their problem”, a small number of men develop breast cancer as well. It’s true. Kudos for all who take up the fight.

    My sister died of breast cancer two years ago, after a long battle.
    I can’t emphasize enough the importance of finding a cure as soon as we can. Lately I notice more and more people that I know or know of are fighting cancer. It’s practically epidemic. So I encourage you all to donate either through Teri’s sister or through a local organization. We need a cure now.
    Thanks for doing this Teri.

    When i was pregnant with my daughter, my two best friends were losing their mothers to cancer. My friend, Christine’s mom was losing her long battle with breats cancer, and Arwen’s mom was in the middle stages of Leukemia. They’re both gone now. Lat year I participated in the Komen Race for the Cure. This year, Arwen and I are training with the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. I was not a runner, but started to do the Komen run. I love that these organizations use an healthy activity to promote their causes. I’m going to click the link to donate now…

    so i don’t mean to spew statistics but yes, 1500 men are diagnosed each year conversely there are 200,000 women diagnosed

    not only do we need a cure, but the komen foundation provides grants for community outreach to educate as well as provide services to those that could not get them on their own

    thank you all for your support, i’ll have pictures of my bandaged blistered feet for ya when i’m done!! hehehe

    Common Breast Cancer Myths

    The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

    Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

    Third is that it is solely hereditary

    The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

    Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

    Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
