Cancer has affected my life in many, many ways, it stole my dad when he was only 44, it tore away at my grandfathers body taking him far to soon and most recently it nipped at the heels of my great niece but the spirit of that strong willed three year old managed to beat it back. Our little bizzy bee beat the demons back and is a shining example of the results of medical improvements, strong will and loving family.
Cancer has touched all of us, I am not sure I know anyone now that has not been touched in one way or another. It is a horrid disease that I hope one day we will beat but in the meantime every bit of hope and comfort we can provide to someone matters.
Did you know that February was the month that the American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR), the American Cancer Society, and thousands of cancer survivors throughout the country celebrated National Cancer Prevention Month. While it’s true that other cancer awareness efforts from Breast Cancer Awareness to Bladder Cancer Awareness has accomplished a great deal when it comes to raising money for cancer research, National Cancer Prevention Month seeks to attack the problem from a different angle.
