THE STORY:

There is a great unifier in the U.S. and it’s waaaay bigger than the 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon. It’s cancer.

At Cancer Schmancer, believe we are all 1 degree of cancer. Why? Because last year, an estimated 1.4 million new cancer cases were diagnosed and over half a million Americans died. How could you possibly not have a husband, wife, parent, sister, friend, peer or coworker affected with the disease? It almost seems impossible today.

WE BELIEVE THAT LATE STAGE DIAGNOSIS OF CANCER CAN BE STOPPED (and this isn't pipe dream stuff).

How? Early detection. 90% of people who detect cancer early enough survive. Let's look at that number again. 90 PERCENT. This is a staggering statistic - and it means we have the power to save lives NOW by taking control of our bodies, educating ourselves, and partnering with our doctors to get the proper screening and diagnostic tests. This message is especially important to women, who are the caregivers in almost every home and the gatekeeper of health to their families.

So if you are 1 degree of cancer (which we can nearly guarantee you are!) you can help.

1) JOIN MY TEAM and get the word out to everyone. Early detection saves lives.

2) DONATE JUST $10 FOR EACH OF YOUR 1 DEGREES (Really, just $10!) so Cancer Schmancer can continue to save women’s lives through our early detection programs. Through our Early Detection Fran Vans, we are partnering with local screening services to help low income, uninsured women receive the screenings they need. And your dollars help us help women.

3) SHARE YOUR STORY- Who’s your 1 degree? How has cancer impacted you? Use your words, photos and videos so people can really put a face to this scourge and can't turn away.

“If we find cancer early, 90 percent survive. If we find cancer late, 10 percent survive.” --- Wired, “The Truth About Cancer” (Jan 2009)
