Most of what we talked about I knew, however they had a couple of extra things to say that made my day!
1. The breast cancer stamp was started in 1998 and has raised over 71 million dollars for research. It is up for re-authorization and it is SUCH an easy way to raise money it should continue to do so!Article on the Subject
3. The average 5 year survival life expectancy when the organization was founded 30 years ago was 70%, now it is 98%.
4. And as another encouragement to everyone to participate in the Race for the Cure, all proceeds from the local races go right back into the local communities to support education and early detection services. The 3 Day for the Cure funds the national organization- all are important. BUT if those funds remain local in part, then it could be one of your friends who needs to use those community services.
