Stand up to Cancer telecast

Standard

I don’t know how anyone could miss this hour long show Friday, the 5th as it was on all three major networks. Maybe cancer can be cured in our lifetime. As someone who had a close call with it last year, I appreciate all the research they can do. Meryl Streep talked about how the March of Dimes was started by Eddie Cantor, on the radio, when he asked people to send a dime for polio research. And we are lucky as a vaccine was found for polio. It could happen with cancer too.

I was touched to see Patrick Swayze speak and hear James Taylor and Sheryl Crow sing ‘Fire and Rain’. Sheryl had the calcifications like I did, but hers were cancer. She looks beautiful now and her little boy Wyatt is adorable. Dana Delaney had her mammogram videotaped. The doctor had felt a large calcification-the bigger they are the better.  I had the small microscopic ones.

I went to the site and went shopping for some little things at Cafe Press. I wanted a t-shirt, but all they had were a trucker’s hat, buttons and stickers. I bought the later two for the time being.

I’m going to keep this as a sticky post (something new at WordPress-yeah),

so you can go shopping if you’d like. If I had more moola, I’d buy more. If I get a little more down the road, I’ll send some to this org.

<————–keep clicking the buttons in my sidebar! The breast cancer site is doing a fundraiser of sorts by the number of clicks they receive.

  1. It would certainly be wonderful to see a cure for cancer in our lifetime!! They’ve come a long way but still have a long way to go. I didn’t have the tv on at all yesterday so I missed that show…darn it! Having lost so many loved ones to cancer, including my dad and gran, I would have been interested to watch it! xoxo

  2. I missed that the other night. I was really wanting to see it. I admire Robin Roberts so much with sharing so much about her breast cancer on morning t.v. and going bald in public. She is a brave person in so many ways! It would be wonderful to find a cure for cancer in our lifetime. My daddy was dx last year with prostrate and bone cancer. The Dr. said he won’t die from the cancer, but with the cancer. He hasn’t been the same since he was dx though,

    I hope all is well with your mom. Hopefully she will be better in the morning. They can so such amazing things with eye surgeries now. I’ll keep her in my prayers and hope she has a speedy recovery!

    Have a great day Dianne!
