Komen Race for the Cure before, but I didn't really know what it was all about. So, even though I hardly consider myself a runner, I decided to run in the race and learn about the event. I learned a lot.
The surgical oncologist and plastic surgeon came to see me first thing every morning. The nurses and clinicians were so helpful and caring during my time as an inpatient. I was born and raised in a small town on Long Island in New York.

Researches on the complex, multi-dimensional, and dynamic natured organisms reveal new findings and beauties pertaining to creation. Recent researches made in relation to various aspects of the breast milk have once more verified that the baby food formulas, supposedly enriched by modern techniques, are not at all equal to the breast milk which is a clear and evident Divine miracle. The newborn babies who are fed with infant formulas are becoming sick more frequently and are four times more prone to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome SIDS as compared to babies who are breast-fed.
A drug that can slow the progression of advanced breast cancer has been shown for the first time to lengthen survival in women whose disease started before or during menopause, researchers reported on Saturday. In patients who took the drug along with a standard treatment, 70 percent were still alive three and a half years later, compared with only 46 percent of those given the standard treatment alone. The standard treatment uses drugs to block the hormone estrogen or stop the body from making it, because estrogen feeds the growth of breast cancer in many patients. The new findings apply only to women who have not yet reached menopause or are still going through it, and whose tumors are sensitive to estrogen but lack a protein called HER2.
