Reach Out on World Ovarian Cancer Day

Posted on Wednesday, May 08, 2013 in Awareness

Today is the first world ovarian cancer day. The first time that the all the concerned people of the world are getting together and saying, "Hey, hear about this tragedy. Lend a hand. Be aware. We can make a difference." That is big stuff.

So today, CancerDancer is asking everyone to pick one person, and send them the following note, through email, facebook, a phone call, or a visit. This is a simple and free way to be part of the solution, and this should target someone you care about. That is reason enough, isn't it?

Our mission has always been to provide information and help people connect. That is one of the reasons that we are so excited about this new website. With this new set of tools, we will be able to reach further and connect deeper. Although we don't believe that technology is the answer to every problem -- and no website will ever substitute for a warm smile or a good hug -- we have seen how effective it can be.

Something to Agree On.

Something to Agree On.

As you know, CancerDancer calls Richmond, Va. home. As you also know this is a battleground state for the presidential election and a state that can elect either Democrats or Republicans depending upon the race, the date, the weather, etc. Accordingly, we are inundated with vitriolic ads and lively debate here in the Old Dominion.

CancerDancer is thankful that Governor Bob and First Lady Maureen McDonnell are opening the Governor’s Mansion to CancerDancer on September 10 to mark Ovarian Cancer Awareness month. I have tweeted the President and asked him to join us. Who knows, right? He lost his mother to ovarian cancer.

In doing so, it struck me  that this is an event that EVERYBODY can agree on. Cancer is not partisan, it does not lean left or right. It is tragic and we can all band together to support those that have it and seek a cure.
