Welcome to my blog!

I’ am hoping that you are interested, and want to know more about the effects of breast cancer in women. It is not only affecting women but the toll it is taking on the world is extremely alarming. Millions of women are being diagnosed with breast cancer each day. It is the largest killer of women in the world, which is why I’ am interested in keeping all women informed with this issue. I will be posting articles on treatment and awareness. I also will be posting ways for women to lead healthier lives and exercise plans. Women need to take control of their lives and be strong.

I will be proving information on what women could do before hand to lessen the chances of being diagnosed, and the treatment you should consider if you are already diagnosed such as “advanced radiation, chemotherapy, surgery or hormonal therapy” (

There are many women fighting for the government to take action and help donate and raise money and new treatments for women. One celebrity that is extremely involved is Marcia Cross from the hit television show “Desperate Housewives”. She recently went to Capital Hill, lobbying Congress to pass the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act of 2007 to end “drive-through” mastectomies for women forced to leave the hospital hours after surgery.” She is campaigning to give women more time in hospital facilities to recover.


  1. Lakeria, great introduction. I am interested to hear more news about the Breast Cancer Patient Protection Act as you find out more information on it

    Maybe you can find information on a committee in congress that does cancer research. How much money is put aside for that type of research?

  2. Hey Lakeria,
    Great welcome to your blog. I just want you to know you are taken on an important issue. You are showing light on this dark illness. By giving people the knowledge you are doing a big part. Keep up the great work.
