As we turn the calendar to October

let us be aware of the many who have and who continue to suffer, not just from breast cancer, but cancers of all kinds.
There are reminders everywhere that this is breast cancer awareness month, I got mine from Yahoo this morning.
I was encouraged to read about the Athena project beginning at UCSD.
It seems likely that this will lead to a breakthrough.
I can't help but remember those who have returned to heaven after suffering with this disease, but everyday there are more and more who are cured. I also would like to pay tribute to the hundreds of thousands who have walked thousands of miles to help raise money for this cause. Surely it was your steps and your blisters that have brought us this far.

I read that, too, Ann - about the ATHENA project. I think it's a hopeful start to a long process of further research, much-needed research. I'm happy it's happening. THANK YOU FOR THIS POST. -- Davi
