Today is World Cancer Day. The message from the sponsoring group? DO SOMETHING
The Komen Fund made the right choice and reversed its mistake of letting politics reduce cancer screenings. Now it’s up to the rest of us to do something, such as:
Sign the petition at worldcancerday.org.
Speak out against politics in cancer.
Speak out against cancer killing 600,000 Americans every year. In a decade, that’s the population of Chicago.
Speak out on funding – our government spends $ 50 billion per year on homeland security but gives the National Cancer Institute only $ 5 billion for cancer research. Osama bin Laden killed about 2,100 people. That many people die from cancer every 2 days. Money is being spent in the wrong places.
