Breast Investigators Blog by Michelle Stears, Recognized by Nancy Brinker
Nancy Brinker clearly agreed with what Michelle Stears had to say in her blog about the Missing Voices in the Discussions of Susan G. Komen. In Brinker’s plenary address at last week’s Susan G. Komen Leadership Conference, she not only mentions Michelle Stears, but also uses her very words to describe the importance of Komen funding. A need Stears sees first hand in her role in Grant Support at Sarasota Memorial Breast Health Center assisting women newly diagnosed with breast cancer through the system. A position made possible because of the Suncoast Affliate of Susan G. Komen. http://www.breastinvestigators.com/content/missing-voices-discussions-susan-g-komen

"I Survived Breast Cancer and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt!" | Yes, Breast Cancer CAN be Funny!
Please share this video with anyone you know who would enjoy and appreciate a good laugh. Because yes, breast cancer CAN be funny! Joanne Dodge, founding Board member of BreastCancerStories.org / My Breast Cancer Support hosts the 2010 comedy show, "I Survived Breast Cancer and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt!" The event, a fundraiser for http://www.BreastCancerStories.org, took place at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, NH. Sadly, Joanne lost her 4th battle with breast cancer February 28, 2012. She was a very funny woman, a true advocate for breast cancer support initiatives, and she touched so many people's lives. Her daughter, Wendy McCoole (also a survivor), founded BreastCancerStories.org in 2005 with her Mom by her side. Joanne's legacy lives on in all of us.
