We believe everyone here is responsible and understands that, but it is important to re-state.

Breast Cancer website-One click helps others

Postby Kat Lady » 05 Feb 2008, 14:15

Health and Healing Moderators, please feel free to move this if you feel it is better served elsewhere.

As many of you know, Cancer has become the number one killer for Americans under the age of 85. One type of cancer, Breast Cancer, has a high rate of successful treatment if detected and treated in its early stages. As you also know, the US does not have socialized medicine. Unfortunately, this means that many American women, especially those with lower incomes, do not have yearly mammograms as they have no insurance to cover the cost of the test.

The Cancer Society has arranged with corporate sponsors/advertisers to have them donate free mammograms to those that need them. However, this means that they have a daily quota of people needed to visit their website and click on the donation portion. They have issued a cry for help as they have been having difficulty meeting the required quota for the corporations to donate.

It costs nothing but a minute of your time to click on the website, well that and maybe the possibility of some obnoxious pop-ups! :grin:

So, I am putting this website here for those that may be interested in taking the moment to click for the cure: http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/

And ladies, do your monthly breast examinations, especially if you are in a high risk category. (Kat steps off soap box now.)

Hi Kat...

This thread is perfect in this forum, and is such a worthy cause, so worthy that I have chaned it to a "sticky". I will click daily...and ask that others do the same.
We are all in this fight together.

(In fact, this site is the same as the "animal rescue site" that I requested everyone to click on daily....different tab :) )

You want to know a little about tumors/lumps go here.

Don't get uspet if your Doc knows nothing about this, Oncologists only have to do their refresher every 10 years!

So by time you get the newest treatment its probably about 15 years old.

Small request, unless the idea is not good. Please put the clickable charities in one spot. I think people would do more this way.

I'm really glad this link was here! I clicked every day for quite a while on my last two computers, but since I've had this one it failed to cross my mind to search out the website again. This served as the reminder I needed; have added to my favorites, clicked today, and will recommence daily clickage!

Another good website to check out is Relay For Life. We've participated for the past three years, ever since my wife became a cancer survivor, Breast and Ovarian.

That's how it used to be. Board certifications now have to be maintained by CME.

My mother is a breast cancer survivor. We were lucky. Her mother had it and had one breast removed. When my mother got "the touches of it" she said "Screw it. Take them both. Do it now. JUST DO IT" and she went through a couple of doctors before one agreed to do the surgery. She had both taken off and fake ones put on (she hates them but she doesn't regret the decision) and it was gone. I guess certain doctors felt that she should have tried more "traditional" treatment first but she was a single mother and she wasn't about to take any risks. If I ever get it (heaven forbid) I plan to do the same thing. If it can be gotten rid of in the early stages that...I don't want to say "easily" because that's not right, but for lack of a better word...then it's worth it.

Drink little or no alcohol. Alcohol is associated with an improved risk of breast cancers. Women should limit intake to no more than one drink per day, regardless of the type of alcohol.Sure above link(into your post)will be referenced long into the future...

Breast cancer isn't just one disease; there are several different types of tumors with different biochemical and molecular characteristics. Likewise, all women aren't alike. It is true that, on average, 2-5 drinks per day tends to increase a woman's risk of getting breast cancer by 1.5 times over the risk of that non-drinkers have. Yes, it's an increased risk, but in real numbers the difference is not huge.

Please note that I'm not advocating excessive alcohol consumption—I just wanted to point out that there are few to no absolutes when dealing with breast cancer, other than that having breasts and getting older increases one's risk. See http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcanc ... sk-factors for a comprehensive list of factors that can affect a person's (men can get this cancer, too, remember) risk of developing breast cancer. (On second thought, don't follow that link. It's going to tell you more than you really want to know.)
