Fran Drescher's New Website

Fran Drescher has developed a new organization called "The Cancer Schmancer Movement" to advocate finding means for early detection of gynecologic cancers. I was diagnosed with 1B Uterine and 1C Ovarian cancers almost five years ago, and have learned how very important early detection is, and how very hard it is to get!

Because her book "Cancer, Shmancer" was the first book I read about a personal experience with gynecologic cancer (I read it while waiting for surgery), I have paid attention what Ms. Drescher has been saying, and she has been an advocate on Capitol Hill, using her celebrity status to promote Johanna's Law; that bill has been signed by President Bush somewhat recently.

I admire Fran for helping promote awareness for womens' cancers, and hope you will give the new site a look.

The website is at http://www.cancerschmancer.org/, and here's the mission statement of the organization:
Cancer Schmancer's mission is to have all women't cancers diagnosed at stage 1, when they are most treatable and curable.

The organization is featured in the July 2007 issue of Ladies' Home Journal.
