WORLD CANCER DAY




It is supposed to be Tasty Tuesday...
BUT....


Today is WORLD CANCER DAY.  Yes IT, the miserable unwanted deadly thing gets a whole day. Ok, No that is not so.  Actually, http://www.worldcancerday.org/  details the purpose of today, very well.


I quote:

World Cancer Day 2014 (4 February 2014) focuses on Target 5 of the World Cancer Declaration: Reduce stigma and dispel myths about cancer, under the tagline “Debunk the myths”.
World Cancer Day is a chance to raise our collective voices in the name of improving general knowledge around cancer and dismissing misconceptions about the disease. From a global level, we are focusing our messaging on the four myths above. In addition to being in-line with our global advocacy goals, these overarching myths leave a lot of flexibility for members, partners and supporters to adapt and expand on for their own needs.

Cancer has taken our friend Benny.  We are all so proud of Lily for celebrating Benny's life by
 Joining Team Fight Like A Frenchie: FLAF Nation
and participating in   the Morris Animal Foundation K9 Cancer Walk In memory of Benny and on behalf of  her friend Murray Muffin who is bravely fighting the fight.

PLEASE spread the word. CANCER is being defeated daily. We are making strides. Soon, it will be a disease of the past avoidable with proper immunization.

Benny, we miss you. We will honor you with the Morris Animal Foundation and we invite everyone to do the same. You fought a brave fight and taught us all in the process.
