Monday, May 6, 2013 is World Cancer Day

  • A lot of progress has been made in cancer care, but there is more to do to find the cause and cure. As survivors, we can help in that pursuit by donating our time and/or financial resources. This time of year there are many opportunities to participate. The American Cancer Society sponsors the Relay for Life. The Baltimore Women’s Classic 5K run will be on Sunday, June 23rd in downtown Baltimore. Yesterday, I volunteered with Katie for Komen Maryland at the Arbutus Town Hall. A number of vendors sold wonderful gifts for Mother’s Day. Katie and I shared educational materials on breast cancer and encouraged participation in the Komen Race for the Cure on October 20th, Komen’s largest fundraising event of the year.

    With everyone doing their part, maybe there will be a time when we won’t have to recognize World Cancer Day.
