Hey all!!
Just a side note, as we get wrapped up in details of our jobs and professions, just a quick reminder that october is Breast cancer awareness month. My future mother in law is a 1 year survivor and we are running/walking the komen race for the cure in lexington this coming saturday the 27th of september.

If you're interested and are in the lexington/cincinnati/louisville area and want to run/walk with us, PM me and I'll provide details.

If you can't make it, there's always the Komen donation center for the national fund for early detection.

Fly safe.

I can merely offer a word of support.

My mother in law is fighting that bastard right now, and on behalf of that old battle-axe*, thank you, Bryan.

*I love that sweet lady dearly. Toughest person I know... heck, she put up with my wife for years! ;) She's doing fine. Weak, but fine. And tough as shoe leather. Thanks, B.

Keeping the ladies in mind.....

More men die of prostate cancer than women of breast cancer....

Just the facts so we can have perspective... support Bryan and Komen....

Unfortunately Rez, you're correct, but they haven't given us a ba** awareness month....so we'll make due. Thanks for the kind words.

I saw a couple Eagle 145s with pink ribbons on them the other day at ORD. Anyone know any more about that?

Seventeen months ago my mom was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer and given 2 years to live. Though her time may be getting short she is happy, active, and enjoying the time she has.

Thanks for bringing up this great cause.

Stay strong for her. Hope, she and all others that people know here, get well soon.

Wow, that is tough for you too. Please accept my heartfelt support and prayers for you and her during this ordeal.

Indeed, a worthwhile cause if ever there was one. Mods, any chance of a sticky?

I forget where I heard the statistic, but I've heard most breast cancer is detected by a partner?

So, even if she complains, make sure to do your part for early detection! ;)

Should we take up the collection for your bail money now or later?

Blesko,
Great cause, great walk/race!

Everyone:
If anyone has anything left over after helping Blesko, I'm walking the Breast Cancer 3 -Day walk here in DFW in November. It's 60 miles over the course of 3 days....I'd appreciate anything y'all could add to my fund raising! All the proceeds from all the 3-Days nationwide also go to the Komen organization.

Thank you!

They might do good research related to breast cancer but they also use the money you send them to support planned parenthood who is the largest provider of abortions in the world.
Is seems a bit ironic that an organization that does such good work in providing for the well being of persons suffering from this terrible disease also is a major contributer to the culture of death in our country. Planned parenthood accounts for up to 4000 abortions a day in the U.S.
I don't mean to put a downer on the good work they do but alot of people don't realize the other side of them.
A good alternative to them is The American Cancer Society...

Moreover, more women die of lung cancer than of breast cancer and still more die of heart disease. In fact, while more men get heart disease than women, it kills women far more than men.

My mom has breast cancer too. Doctors told her she only had 4 years to live...That was 14 years ago. Just stay positive, have faith and maximize your time with her.

I'm also participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day (in Atlanta). My wife and I are walking and it has done wonders to encourage my mom to keep fighting. We're walking for her mom, your mom and everyone affected by this horrible disease.
