Take it to the Hill
After watching the debates last night, it hit me how many insignificant things we have made political. I say we clear some space for issues that truly matter to us. This one matters to me.

This October marks the 20th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a time to reflect on the progress we’ve made in the war on breast cancer and a reminder of just how far we still have to go. Right now, with the elections fast approaching, we have a special opportunity to put breast cancer on the national agenda. The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is asking supporters to send a letter to the presidential candidates, asking them where they stand on breast cancer issues.

The Komen Foundation has made it very simple for you to send a letter to the presidential candidates in less than two minutes. Follow this link and simply fill in your information. It is really that simple. If for some reason my link doesn't work for you, you can also copy and paste this Internet address http://komenpolicy.org/campaign/NBCCEDP2?source=200409_sig_listings.

Over the past twenty years, we have made great strides in advancing breast cancer research, education, screening, and treatment. Let's mark the 20th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by renewing our commitment and asking presidential candidates to do the same.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
