Check out this month's newsletter from the Leukemia organization.....

You all know that I have a passion for kids fighting Leukemia and Lymphoma. I often refer you to the website for more resources.
Again, I will refer you to this months email newsletter if you do not subscribe. One article indicates that although the economy is in the toilet, the newly elected 111th Congress may delegate more funding to Leukemia and Lymphoma research and treatments.
This is of course, good news. Check out www.LLS.org for the complete information and other equally interesting resources for families dealing with these treatable blood cancers.
Also, I will be finding resources for other cancers as well. More funding and research is needed to treat other cancers but is sometimes not as available because those cancers affect fewer numbers of the population. Pancreatic cancer lacks funding because it affects much fewer people than say breast cancer. Not a good reason to have lack of funding and lack of information.
Stay tuned to this blog for more current information on other cancers and sponsoring websites.
Continue to check it out.
