Our Army of Women is now 268,000 members strong, and I’m sending heartfelt Valentine’s Day wishes to each and everyone of you.
Valentine’s Day is all about love and commitment, and the commitment each of you has shown to this effort surpasses anything I might have imagined.
I also wanted to let you know that I’ve just begun working on the 5th edition of my Breast Book, which will incorporate everything that we’ve learned over the past four years. And, of course, it will mention our amazing Army of Women!
What would you like to see in the next edition? What do you find most confusing about breast cancer prevention, detection, and treatment? What do you feel your doctors don’t tell you enough about? I look forward to coming back to this blog to read your suggestions!
And for those of you who might be interested in moving from participating in research to advocating for more money nationally and a different research agenda, you might want to look into the National Breast Cancer Coalition Advocacy Conference in Washington, DC May 2-5, 2009. This is a group I helped start in 1992 and it is responsible for much of the success in the breast cancer movement. I will be at the conference as will breast cancer advocates from around the country and scientists who realize the importance of working together. To learn more, click here.
