Do you know anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer? Did you know that 1 out of 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime…1 out of 2 men. So unless you are a family of one, with no friends and you are the luckiest person in the whole wide world…cancer is going to touch someone you care about, at some point. If you haven’t had to deal with the enemy cancer yet…consider yourself blessed beyond reason. There is a movement afoot to Stand Up To Cancer. It doesn’t matter if it is breast cancer, colon cancer, blood cancers, brain cancer,ovarian, or any other kind of cancer…it is a destroyer and needs to be eliminated. Please join forces to battle a plague on the world that we live in…help fight cancer.
The goal is to Stand Up To Cancer and understand it…take it apart…so that we can more efficiently battle it and WIN! That is the end goal. Cancer is the enemy…it is a thief…it has stolen enough, artists, doctors, mothers, muscians, pilots, cab drivers, babies, teachers, clerks, lecturers, fathers, students, writers, researchers, husbands, factory workers, miners, fire fighters, sons, nurses, daughters, child care workers, politicians, sisters, waitresses, brothers, lecturers, speakers, wives, caregivers, grandparents, role models, athletes, neighbors, librarians, friends, social workers, police men & women, military men and women, designers, dancers, clergy, you get the idea…Cancer is not picky about who it chooses to invade and try to destroy.
It could be you next, or someone you care about. Cancer claims one life a minute each day! Can you believe that? One person a minute per day is too many loses! That is 1,500 deaths per day… that is unacceptable. Protect your health best way that you can, eat right, exercise, protect your environment, take your vitamins, stay away from contaminants, be aware and educate yourself. Honor those who have fought with everything they have…help out someone in a health crisis with cancer…be a supporter to someone in need.
Once cancer strikes…there are many needs, physical,spiritual, medical, emotional, financial, transportation, and daily care needs. Do what you can to lift someone up! Life is precious. Will you make a commitment to be a force to be reckoned with and help make an impact in the fight against cancer?
For us to win the war on cancer it requires courage, support, awareness, education and funding. The television networks are joining together to bring those tools to the public and try to create a historic event that will hopefully rev up the odds of winning. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/StandUp2Cancer/ There are many celebrities who are adding their voice and their talents to the project. They have a wonderful website that you can view here that will explain more. In the meantime, look for the program to hit the networks on Sept 5th, at 8 pm. You can go to the website and read up on the idea here: http://www.standup2cancer.org/ Let’s not be idle and let others do the fighting…there is something that we all can do…what are you willing to do to help? Let’s envision a future without cancer!!!
