7777+ Days: #584 Help Us Reach Next October

The last day of October.  3,596 lovely people have died since October 1 from MBC.  That number times 12 = over 43,000 this year.  Let's start reducing these deaths beginning today.

#584 Help Us Reach Next October



Champion fundraisers!
October 31

Goals
The last day of the month and I would be remiss in not plugging the most important goal for me--raising a gazillion dollars for MBC.  Don't worry, I'm not expecting that from you, but a donation to  More For Stage IV fund at the UW Carbone Cancer Center would turn this pinkish month into a color we can all benefit from—the color of hope. Hope for life-saving research.

#582 Eat, Drink and be Merry With Your Dining Club

The table set for food from a movie theme.
October 29
3,364 gone from MBC since October 1

Goal
Our dining club began nine years ago.  Every few months we gather at one of the homes and are treated to a delightful evening based on the host's theme.  We've had a few mishaps but overall it has been quite a rewarding experience. Go to Dining club or other clubs to see how to get started.  

We did the main meal--Beef Bourguignon la Hassan from the movie, A Hundred-Foot Journey. Martinis from all the James Bond movies and wine from Sideways.

MBC Fact
  1. Do young women get metastatic breast cancer?
    YES. For young women under 40: 5% of the new cases of breast cancer and 3% of the deaths. Metastatic breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in this age group. For young women under 50: 27% of the new cases of breast cancer and 16% of the deaths.

Thanks for reading #582 of 7777+ .  Of course I will mention a donation to the More For Stage IV fund at the UW Carbone Cancer Center would be a perfect gift today!
