I cannot think of one person that I know who does not have a friend or relative that has been affected by cancer. It always saddens me when I hear that somebody I know has been stricken with any form of cancer. It is just tragic. I have always been told that early detection is the best way to combat it. My husband encourages me to get a pap smear and breast exam every year, since it is recommended for women my age.
I am curious about cancer research and the funading for such research. I know that someday a cure will be found and the better funded the research, there is a better chance of finding a cure sooner rather than later. Places like cureLauncher.com, provide you a venue to learn about and support cancer research. I want to know what is going on and what new advancements there are in the treatment of this deadly disease.
I want to know that if a friend or relative is stricken with cancer that there is a cure out there. I have two daughters and it would be great to think of them growing up in a world where cancer is no longer a threat.
