Common Questions and Answers about Breast cancer donations


Avatar f tn Stand Up To Cancer is dedicated to providing this much needed new source of cancer research funding. Donations made to Stand Up To Cancer will fund research that will lead to and accelerate new treatment breakthroughs across all types of cancer. While the campaign will address those breakthroughs that are most promising within distinct disease areas, it will potentially lead to new discoveries that can be applied across the entire spectrum of cancer.
282804 tn?1236837191 $0 are you kidding me. $0. I can't stop saying it. Lung cancer, breast cancer, whether or not the president likes jelly bellies vs. Raisinets gets more funding than Ovarian cancer. Their latest studies where back in 2000. Hold on a minute I need to turn on some classical music to calm down....................... Ok. This site is very broad in it's coverage of topics for ovarian cancer. I like how a celebrity who actually has OVCA is speaking out.
Avatar f tn The doc just called and the new sighting was benign. I still have the other cancer tho so I am not overly excited. Its like saying the melon (like the pun...) is only half rotten.
Avatar n tn It actually angered me when I opened Sundays paper to see a target add in the month of Sept covered with Breast Cancer awareness items (all in pink). While I am not knocking breast cancer by anyyyyyy means ( my mother had it) but just the fact that there is all this for breast cancer and nothing for ovarian cancer... here is the site http://www.lorealcolorofhope.
Avatar n tn Clomid affects the entire body whereas these two other drugs are FDA approved to treat breast cancer. They specifically target your body to suppress estrogen production to force you to make more which will cause you to ovulate. My RE said they use Clomid first because it is FDA approved for fertility treatment and has been around longer for that use, thereby setting a precedent for itself.
295767 tn?1240191914 This funding represents $3,000 for each breast cancer or prostate cancer death—but only $650 for each ovarian cancer death. Carlebach told the senators that while it is terrible to have cancer, it is even worse to have cancer that has a relatively low incidence rate with a lower pubic profile, less funding, less research and less hope for successful treatment.
Avatar n tn While talking with a group of casual acquaintances yesterday about financial donations to cancer research, one of them said, "I can't see where donations do any good as they are still doing the same thing they did 50 years ago..cut and poison." As a breast cancer survivor whose treatment consisted of a mastectomy (cut) and chemotherapy (poison) completed in April, 2004, she used me as an example of lack of progress.
93532 tn?1349374050 Komen Foundation in the fight against breast cancer. I will be walking 60 miles over 3 days to raise money for this worthy cause. My own little personal page for the event is at this link: I have to take the time to personalize it a little bit when things settle for a spell. John and the boys donated (with my debit card,lol) to get me started towards my minimum goal. I am so excited, but nervous as well.
198419 tn?1360245956 Martha started this project and continued to work with it despite her mestastic breast cancer. Mary was SO PROUD of her sister for doing this. Thought you might want to know how important this was to Mary and to Martha. The Oak Clinic is a self funded MS Clinic so donations there would be helpful as well.

Avatar f tn I have posted previously the details about my breast cancer but the long and the short of it that it is tubular breast cancer - considered low grade - estrogen driven - not in the sentinal nodes. I am also on Tamoxifin for the next 5 years (so far so good as far as NO side effects but only on for 3 weeks so far).
1530342 tn?1405020090 Elizabeth Edwards, who had previously been diagnosed with breast cancer, separated from John Edwards in early 2010 and died later that year. If found guilty of all six counts, Edwards could have faced up to 30 years in prison and a $1.5 million fine. Each individual count carries a maximum sentence of 5 years and a fine of up to $250,000. Attorneys for Edwards, a former U.S.
1347434 tn?1282595378 Because of that, and my maternal grandmother having breast cancer a few years ago, my GP told me to come in once a year for mammo's to be safe. I actually ended up going about 1.5 years. I pulled up the images of my mammo from 8/2009 and looked at the breast that had no issues, the weird thing was when I looked at the same breast from 2/2011, it had all these white spots in it scattered around. Those weren't there before.
136849 tn?1327325110 I very much want a cure for breast cancer, too. My cousin I have loved for 49 years has fought breast cancer. I just want ovca to get a fair portion of funding for research.
1530342 tn?1405020090 The Komen foundation, known for its Race for the Cure fundraisers, has collected more than $1.9 billion for breast cancer research and programs. It has affiliates in more than 100 U.S. cities and 50 countries.
Avatar m tn The reason "cure" is not used in breast cancer is that 80% of breast cancer is estrogen and progesterone positive. It can recur in other places even decades later. It is fed by hormones. That is not true of hepatitis C. There is no remission.
Avatar n tn There is no history of breast cancer in my family, but I have been told by my doctor that I am fibortic (not sure if that is the right term). The results of the mammogram show there are two cysts in my left breast. I have been instructed to see a breat specialist to see what, if anything, should be done at this point. There have been suggestions that aspiration would be a good idea. There have also been suggestions that unless it is painfull, then action is not necessary.
203342 tn?1328740807 I believe there are many deserving charities. I wish I could give more than I do. I have donated to the MS Association, breast cancer, muscular dystrophy and to the local humane society (I love animals). I also give to the Children's Miracle Network. There are so many and I wish I could do more. I also give blood to the Red Cross. I watched the new television series "Secret Millionaire" last night!
Avatar f tn Wow, I think it is just a cool thing, Even if you can't walk, look at the breast cancer walks and awareness stuff. There are a lot ways to give. it is our disease, we now have a walk! Maybe a ribbon too!
Avatar f tn The breast tissue came back DCIS which is not supposed to be invasive. In my axillary lymph node they also found breast cancer - a different type, I don't remember what the relationship to estrogen was, but they are now saying there is invasive breast cancer somewhere that was missed and it requires further work up. On Wednesday I will have blood work and a breast MRI with more biopsies to see what they can find. On Thursday I will meet with the dream team to find out what the plan will be.
865902 tn?1239312521 ” When I mentioned the recent recommendation that prostate cancer screening be stopped after a man reaches 70, his faced turned red. “That report is clearly an attempt by the liberal media to set the stage for rationing of healthcare. It was a flawed study and should not be taken as the final say on the matter.” He went on to recount cases of otherwise healthy 80 year-old men who developed high-grade prostate cancer, suffered, and died.
362249 tn?1441318618 Then I would have to have a big long hard think about where it would be most useful. Child Abuse, skin cancer, thyroid research, cancer, women's issues, men's health, mental illness, domestic violence, drug education, children's education, breast feeding awareness, fix up the schools here in Australia, the Aboriginal communites, the the list goes on! Ah...if only I were rich!
Avatar n tn She initially had some blood clotting problems after 2 breast surgeries in March 2012. She sailed through both surgeries but bled heavily after the second one. No one understood why. Although she was not young, she had great health and finess. Then she developed a lump on her ribs. She was poked and prodded, x-rayed, sedated (yet again) had needle biopsy. (She detested going to the vet and it stressed her very much.

Avatar f tn The concerted effort to shut down Planned Parenthood and women’s health clinics throughout the nation was thrown into focus in January 2012, when the nonpartisan Susan G.

120255 tn?1197070547 It is used for women with breast cancer but is known to work for ovulating. Also, asked your doctor about PCOS.
189269 tn?1189759425 whoa, I always get a little crazy when folks start talking about how they got this virus, do they ask folks with cancer that same crazy ass question? I remember when the American Liver Foundation came out with an article about how we should not call ourselves heppers, it was a pigeon-hole kind of name that does not do the American public any good as far as becoming educated. Too easy to write "heppers" off.
541150 tn?1306037443 But I'm glad to see there are no-kill shelters like yours where good care is offered always. Do you guys ask for donations? Do you get donations at all? Many no-kill shelters are forced to close for lack of budget. It's so sad. I'm glad you have a good vet. After all, our pets' lives depend on them for the most part. I will be waiting to read all about your baby. Keep taking good care of him. I'm sorry they have to go through this, but they aren't alone, that's for sure. They have us.
