DONATING A MAMMOGRAM

The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily
to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an
underprivileged woman.

It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram"
for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their
corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram
in exchange for advertising.

Visit the site for more information www.thebreastcancersite.com

(why not send an E-mail to your friends asking them to visit the site also)

Younger Womenís Forum..... Breast Cancer Care held a Younger Womenís Forum in Brighton on the 5th and 6th of October. Covering topics such as a medical overview of younger womenís issues, diet and nutrition, and massage and aromatherapy. It also offered topic based discussion sessions, and an evening dinner with entertainment, giving participants a chance to talk to others who have had a similar experience.

The programme was professionally supported by health professionals and trained volunteers.

I have been advised by Lisa Grosser of Breast Cancer Care that the forum was a great success and that other forums may be planned for the near future in other parts of the country.

PLEASE VISIT THE BREAST CANCER CARE WEB SITE FOR MORE INFORMATION.
