    Thanks Harry. I've checking there daily for some time, I just hope it does help someone.

    I do have mammograms each year (OUCH !!). Still no signs of cancer but did have a non-cancerous fibroid removed some years ago.

    Thanks Harry

    Great site. I'll click on it as much as possible. Interestingly enough, there are also very nice pieces for breast cancer awareness. My "younger" sister is a survivor so it's near and dear to my heart...

    I think they only let you click once a day but if enough people click, it gets the job done. hj

    My sister

    ...will be undergoing another mastectomy on October 8th. For those of you who pray, please put her on your prayer list. She is a 7 1/2 year survivor from her first mastectomy on the other breast. Girls, get your mamograms.

    Support

    Folks, almost all of us are touched in one way or another by breast cancer. Please go to this site and click to help offer a free mammogram and also go to the place within the site to sign a petition against drive-through mastectomies. How absurd that a woman must be kicked out of the hospital in less than 24 hours after having her entire breast removed along with lymp nodes and having a drainage tube that must remain for several days. She is tramatized physically and emotionally and needs support, which caring nurses may begin if she is allowed time to stay a little longer. My sister did the nurturing and support for others as she was an oncology RN and needs the same support this week, which she will NOT receive in the hospital.

    I won't get off this soapbox....I love my sister.

    One of our gals in the Vision Therapy department is being treated for breast cancer--had her last treatment last month, woo hoo! Our director of the VT dept has already gone through this years ago. I've got two aunts that have gone through treatments, also. So this is important to me, too.

    Some of us in the office are walking in the Race for the Cure this weekend. I'll post some pics when it's all done.
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

    It does count

    I clicked again this morning and for example 14.5 mammograms were donated just because of those from yesterday. Please just take a little time. And BTW, there are wonderful things on the site. Information as well as the cutest things to purchase.

    Let's help

    I've told this to my co-workers and they promise to donate once they've been available online. It's a good thing that there are kind of people like you, who have the heart to help those in need and not at lucky as we are. Let's keep this going.

    There's a spot on the page that you can sign up to have daily reminder emails sent, with a direct link for the button. I have a separate email I use for things that need a log-in, so my real email doesn't get bogged down with solicitations. I check it every day, so I get an easy link to come click on this page. It only takes 30 seconds, if that.

    This is too easy! Keep clicking!
    It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice.

    From Shwing this AM...check it out!

    This will bring a smile to your face ~ it's awesome!
    Emily Somers created, directed and choreographed this in Portland last week for her Medline glove division as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This was all her idea to help promote their new pink gloves. I don't know how she got so many employees, doctors and patients to participate, but it started to really catch on and they all had a lot of fun doing it.


    When the video gets 1 million hits, Medline will be making a huge contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the community. Please check it out. It's an easy and great way to donate to a wonderful cause, and who hasn't been touched by breast cancer?

    I plead guilty.....

    I don't always remember to stop by and punch in, as it were! We bumped it to keep it at the top but sometimes we don't see it when it's right in front of us. Kind of like the peanut butter in the cupboard our wives send us to look for. I'd like a nickle for every time I've said it wasn't there, only to have her walk over and pick it right out!
    I did punch in today.....thanks Fezz

    Thanks for keeping this going. My friend and co-worker, Carole, is a survivor. She was doing chemo a couple of years ago and working.......she's awesome! She had to go south for radiation for 2 months and was sorely missed. When she came back the docs paid for our flu shots so she wouldn't get sick. We are family!
