Prevent. Detect. Share.
What is Blog for Hope?

Yahoo! Health and the American Cancer Society have joined forces in a 30-day Blog for Hope event. Here is how they describe it:

Blog for Hope is the nation's first celebrity blogging initiative to dramatically raise awareness of cancer prevention and early detection. Celebrities and public figures from every walk of life share triumphs, insights, and personal stories of how cancer has affected their personal lives.

There is no script when it comes to cancer. You may be surprised to learn that some of your favorite celebrities have survived cancer, while others have been profoundly touched by it. With Blog for Hope, you can read celebrity blogs where new entries are added throughout the 30-day event. You also can express your thoughts, exchange information, develop communities, and share inspiration and support with cancer patients, survivors, and others affected by cancer.

Produced in cooperation with the American Cancer Society and Yahoo! Health, Blog for Hope focuses on cancer prevention and early detection by stressing the importance of changing bad habits to reduce risk, knowing treatment options, and adopting healthy lifestyles.

Bloggers include Fran Drescher, Hillary Clinton, Deepak Chopra, Tom Green, Peggy Flemming and many others. Stop by and give them a visit. You'll find everything from statistics to personal stories, hopeful posts to humorous posts. A veritable potpourri of cancer blogging. Enjoy.

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.
