I think it miight be my pneumonia talking...


Recommended Posts

I posted this in LC in the News, by mistake. Sorry.


My antibiotics must be kicking in (or affecting my judegment, for the worse--one or the other. Geoff isn't here to tell me).

With the recent smattering of LC affecting women's health in the news--I began wondering who are all the corporate donors supporting BREAST cancer research. So I did a quick Google to find the extremely influential Susan G. Komen Foundation site to see who their top donors are.

Below is a clip from their web site:

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation is dedicated to setting new standards for creative collaboration in the fight against breast cancer. The Foundation develops outreach, awareness and fundraising initiatives with the dedication, commitment and support of blue-chip corporate partners. The partnerships with these companies provide an opportunity for individuals to join in the fight against breast cancer and help spread the life-saving message of early detection to millions of women and men around the world -- in a way that is meaningful to them. To learn more about the innovative programs, promotions and initiatives created with our corporate partners, please click on a name listed below.

Is there an influential LUNG CANCER foundation? As you all know, I'm relatively new to this--so I'm just trying to see how we can help to raise more money for awareness and research. I don't want this recent rash of media publicity to remain just that. I want it to be the snowball that starts an avalanche.

Maybe my temperature has gone back up and I need to return to bed...
