Breast Cancer: Forces Unite For Powerful Cause

By: Jennifer Curra - September 30, 2013

One organization devoted to fighting breast cancer is a force of good, but three organizations coming together to research the side effects of treating the disease is a force of power.

Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation (DSLRF), Susan G. Komen, and Young Survival Coalition (YSC) are all combining forces to research short-term and long-term ramifications, both emotionally and physically, of breast cancer treatments.

All three organizations had members recently speak about the union. Dr. Susan Love is the Chief Visionary Officer of the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation and she recently spoke about the far-reaching problems current sufferers of breast cancer presently face.

“There are more than 3 million people in the United States living with a history of breast cancer, but the cure comes with a cost. Whether they are people living with metastatic breast cancer, people whose cancer is in remission, or carriers of genetic mutations who choose to undergo prophylactic treatment, the side effects of today’s breast cancer treatments are wide-ranging, often debilitating and generally overlooked by the medical community. The price of being treated for breast cancer, though often effective at keeping the disease at bay and prolonging life, is physical and emotional as well as financial,” Dr. Susan Love said.

Nancy G. Brinker from Susan G. Komen mentioned the importance that the union may bring to the larger medical community.

“We were pleased to join with Dr. Love to find answers to these critical questions. The information gathered here can help the medical community better serve breast cancer patients today, and the larger HOW Study will give us information that could identify causes and preventive strategies for this devastating disease,” Nancy said.

Jennifer Merschdorf is both a survivor of breast cancer and the CEO of YSC. Drawing upon her own strength at overcoming personal obstacles from the disease, she spoke enthusiastically about the union.

“This powerful collaboration will ensure that the right questions are asked, including those specific to young women and breast cancer. It is paramount that young women are well represented in this study since the collateral damage from breast cancer treatment more significantly impacts their personal and professional lives, including their ability to bear children,” Jennifer said.

    Breast cancer is just as easily controllable as any other cancer. Nature has provided us the enormous power of being as healthy as Gods, we just gotta activate it.

    Is there a cure for cancer? – That is the question – And the answer to cancer is – A BIG YES! – The End Of Cancer Has Come! – And much more than that – The End Of All Infectious Diseases – plagues like HIV/AIDS, Flues, Malaria, etc. (to name a few) – no epidemics or pandemcs worldwide can be at all possible in the future. Travelling around ghe world, nobody will feel concerned of any infections, for such will not exist anywhere on Earth.
    Diabetes also can be prevented or completely cured.
    I am The Lord of the Cancers and Infections – Because I got the PCK – The Personal Cancer Killer – a devastating weapon of unlimited power against any cancers and infectious diseases on Earth – the prevention and cure for kids and adults of any diseases – from the common cold to cancer – just an exercise for a minute a day for prevention and for 3 – 4 minutes a day for the cure – no slicing, no poisoning, no burning will ever take place inside your body.
    Doing the cancer killer for a minute a day, at winter air temperature of -15C (5F), I walk around town just in my summer shorts and T-shirt for many hours without getting sick – I cannot catch cold, flu, HIV/AIDS, or cancer – my body is absolutely proof against such things.
    The price of the Cancer Killer for the whole world is 2,25 Trillion US Dollars, Euro, or BP (just 300 dollars for everybody on the planet), because it can erase any cancers and infectious diseases from the face of the Earth once and for all.
    I accept any checks of 50 or more Million US Dollars, Euro, or BP to describe the Cancer Killer personally and how one can feel like a God/Goddess all the time, all his/her life – absolutely untouchable for any diseases – known or unknown on the planet.
    Many celebrities lost their lives to cancers and ifectious diseases, but the Cancer Killer will guarantee a complete protection to evrybody in the future.
