#573 Metastatic Breast Cancer Day

Maggie and Heather speaking at the Die in

October 13--MBC Day

Goal # 13
This is not necessarily a goal but an extremely moving video on the only day dedicated to metastatic breast cancer--October 13. Click to view--The Die in video--not to be missed. It is worth the time to watch it in its entirety.  The three of us speaking at the event were all diagnosed within months of each other and I am the only one left to continue advocating for more for Stage IV.  Heather and Maggie were wonderful young women who had so much to offer--but time ran out.  Their daughters now inspire me to continue to raise more funds for MBC.   Please donate for Heather and Maggie's daughters at More For Stage IV fund at the UW Carbone Cancer Center . 100% of all donations go directly to the researchers.


                                        MBC Fact #13

#572 Ha! Ha! Ha!




October 12


Goal #12
 Laugh--just laugh!  I have friends and certain family members who can induce snorting noises at the silliest things. The phrase, "laughter is the best medicine," tends to be an accurate description for those of us needing a lively chuckle every once in a while. Visit this site to find out how a good belly laugh will help you--laughing at a joke  

MBC Fact #12
There are no definitive prognostic statistics for metastatic breast cancer. Every patient and their disease is unique. MBCN



Thanks for reading #572 of 7777+.  This is no joke--
while you are laughing go to More for Stage IV at UW Carbone Cancer Center and donate.
