I received an email recently from the Asbestos Cancer Victims' Rights Campaign, asking if I wouldn't join them in spreading the word for National Cancer Prevention Month. The Campaign is run by Susan Vento, an advocate for mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Her husband, former U.S. congressman Bruce Vento, died of the disease.
The article I've been asked to share is a great piece, highlighting prevention and early detection as the key methods of avoiding a cancer diagnosis. I couldn't agree more, and I'm happy to aid in Susan's message any way I can. Because it's not only Susan's message, it's all of ours. Here story belongs to many of us. We've all had a husband, a father, a daughter, a sister struggle with or fall victim to cancer. And it's about time we dealt with the problem head-on.
Take a look at the article here. And please think about ways you can engage in cancer prevention too.
