Breast Cancer Study Needs Your Help

The NIEHS, NIH, and DHHS are planning a breast cancer study, the Sister Study, and they need your help. The study's goal is to learn about the environmental and genetic causes of breast cancer. This is a national, long-term study of women, aged 35 to 74, who do not have breast cancer themselves but who do have at least one sister who has had breast cancer.

If you fit the criteria, please consider joining the study. If you know someone who might be eligible, please bring this study to their attention. And all of you: please help spread the word. The researchers are looking for women all across the United States; in particular, they'd like to enroll as many women as possible in New York [Manhattan and Long Island].

While I was searching through Blogger I came past your site, it is not really the information I was after about breast cancer symptom but I did stay to read your blog and found it interesting and well done. Keep up the good work and hopefully I will visit again sometime and also find the information on breast cancer symptom that I was looking for in my travels.
