Stand Up to Cancer

Posted by and1grad on August 4, 2008


I’ve been seeing ads for something called “Stand Up to Cancer.” I hope this is a serious attempt to pay more attention to cancer and its prevalence in society. It seems like America is willing to just accept that cancer happens and people die and thats the way it is. Maybe that can change.
Christina Applegate
It was recently announced that Christina Applegate was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully it was caught early and its still treatable. She’s expected to make a full recovery. She’s lucky. Women REALLY need to stay on top of this health issue. Its already affected me and those close to me so the issue strikes a chord.
Livestrong
And this goes for men too. My dad watched a very close friend of his quickly deteriorate and pass due to cancer. In my opinion, there needs to be a full frontal assault on cancer with a special emphasis on prevention. We dont really hear a whole lot of what is causing so many people to develop cancer. Something like lung cancer is obvious but breast cancer? Prostate cancer..etc? Maybe its my own lack of research but I’ve never heard why cancer is running so rampant in our society. Is it all these prescription drugs? Things done with processed foods? Genetically altered meats & veggies?

A friend of mine lost her mother to cancer a week ago. Lets stand up to cancer so hopefully more of us dont have to watch our loved ones suffer and die.
