I had an opportunity to attend a Casting for Recovery Retreat. It was everything wonderful and nothing bad and I would encourage any women breast cancer survivors to at least check this organization out.

Gynecological Cancer Research Network

Type: 
Web site
Description: 

The purpose of the Gynecological Cancer Research Network is to assist the medical community in its investigational (non-clinical) research efforts about gynecological cancer prevention, risk assessment, and early detection. It is our hope to build a network of people who are willing to be called upon whenever the medical community needs participants for investigational studies – to assist them in finding answers more quickly and less expensively, and to make their funding dollars go further. If this model works, it could be used as the prototype for developing similar panels for other diseases, allowing researchers easier, quicker access to hard-to-reach target populations.

In the initial stages, we'll be blogging on topics to gauge interest.
