Everyday my TweetDeck is full of new breast cancer news. What I should eat. What I shouldn’t eat. Which vitamins? New ways to detect. New genes found. Etc. It’s all very exciting and pretty overwhelming sometimes but it makes me realize that there are so many people thinking about this disease. And that’s really good news. I’ve taken small steps like switching to all organic cleaning products. Not sure if it’s helping but I know it can’t hurt.
The latest news shows three genes that, when present, help breast cancer spread to the brain. Why is this good news? Because knowing the genes is the first step. The next step is finding the way to block the process if this gene is present. Keep going guys. Don’t stop this research that will continue to keep me cancer-free and rid this disease from everyone’s lives. I’ll keep raising money, spreading awareness, and listening to all the tips out there if you keep moving this research forward.
What steps have you taken to keep cancer out of your life?
