Having had enough of everything being breast cancer awareness (even my prescription refills come with pink breast cancer awareness caps), I posted the following as my FB status. I also made an additional significant donation to my surgeon's research project - if what he's working on comes to fruition, there will be a lot of happy people on this forum!Alice
Support Cancer Research! Please share.
In honor of “Pinktober” I made a donation to a research project in colorectal and rare cancers. Let’s use the pink to remind the world that there are other cancers for which awareness could save lives; other cancers that need research dollars. Most cancers don’t have enough survivors to get large a movement going.
This month, make a donation to cancer research or support to honor you or your friend or family member who struggled with any cancer; colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, blood cancers, brain cancers, rare cancers, to name a few. Make the donation for general research or dedicate it to your particular cancer cause. Let the world know of your cause.
Mine is Appendix Cancer. I am a 6 year survivor, but I know many who have not been so lucky. My donation is aimed at giving more appendix cancer patients a chance of survival.
