Thankfully, I also know people working on the research end of cancer. One of my friends is a world renowned cancer researcher at Georgetown University. I’m happy to report that her cutting edge treatment is having great, clinical trial, success. I’m also happy to report that my friend, Mike, is successfully battling esophageal cancer thanks to an amazing new treatment. All in all, things have come a long way, Baby. Progress is being made thanks to the people who are funding and to those performing the research.
One of the organizations I most respect is the American Cancer Society, www.cancer.org . For 14 years I worked closely with them as a volunteer with their Reach to Recovery program, the most successful patient service program in their history. I also did media (television and radio), and corporate speaking for them to raise awareness and educate others to topics related to cancer and health. I know them to be trustworthy in the information they share, on top of the latest cancer developments, careful with how they allocate and distribute their contributions, AND one of the largest funders of cancer research in the United States. They fund research for ALL kinds of cancers.
