Promises to maintain and enhance the breast cancer surgery at Llandudno by previous health minister Edwina Hart have been broken.
The centre at Llandudno hospital provides an excellent service and cutting surgery will see a reduction in the services available.
Over time, we fear it will lead to the centralisation of local health services away from our community.
My baby sister was recently SUSPENDED from Lamar Middle School Lamar School District RE2, for wearing a "I <3 BOOBIES" bracelet, supporting breast cancer awareness among the younger crowd. She was sent home crying because they would not allow her to wear it.
Awareness means a lot to her and my entire family, if it wasn't for my mother being aware and getting checked last minute, her breast cancer would have been over looked and taken her life. She survived it, and we support the awareness in any which way possible.
Please help me petition to stop the banning of these awareness bracelets across the U.S. its unneeded censorship!!!
As many of you already know, CancerCare Manitoba has decided to cancel the 2008 Weekend to End Breast Cancer, citing this event as "too large scale" thereby consuming a significant portion of the fundraising potential of Manitoba.
We do not buy this... we believe that Manitoba is fully capable of supporting this fantastic event as well as the multiple other fundraising initiatives that benefit CancerCare therefore we refuse to go down without a fight!
Please help us show Cancer Care Manitoba that this event needs to be held in 2008.
Kylie Minogue has been diagnosed with breast cancer and will undergo treatment in Melbourne.
She learned she had early-stage breast cancer during a routine check-up and immediately postponed her sell-out Australian tour, which was to start in Sydney.
We wish you the best for an early recovery Kylie!!
Nestlé holds about 50% of the world's breast milk substitute market and is being boycotted for continued breaches of the 1981 WHO (World Health Organisation) Code regulating the marketing of breast milk substitutes. Nestlé encourages bottle feeding primarily by either giving away free samples of baby milk to hospitals, or neglecting to collect payments. It has been criticised for misinforming mothers and health workers in promotional literature. Nestlé implies that malnourished mothers, and mothers of twins and premature babies are unable to breastfeed, despite health organisations claims that there is no evidence to support this.
Evidence of direct advertising to mothers has been found in over twenty countries such as South Africa and Thailand. Instructions and health warnings on packaging are often either absent, not prominently displayed or in an inappropriate language. All of these actions directly contravene the Code regulating the marketing of baby milk formulas.
Over 3000 infants die every day from baby bottle disease (WHO), and formula dependant babies create massive economic strain on poor families, contributing to unsustainable land use.
Thanks to this site for the info:
Sears, the WNBA, and NABCO are raising money for breast cancer research, which is highly commendable. But, they have this pink-and-white ball in their commercials and online ads for the cause. I, personally, would love to buy one, in support of breast cancer research. I think it would be a great thing for them to do to raise money.
