It is one of the most deadliest killers in the world, and it cares not what your race, religion, or gender is. It strikes like a "thief in the night," completely ravaging the defenseless victim, and leaving a sea of despair in its wake. The menace is cancer, and every year it claims hundreds of thousands of lives world-wide..
Many of my friends have had this hated disease, and this year it claimed my aunt and my sister-in-law's lives. In an effort to assist in the continuation of the "cutting edge" cancer research, Much More Than a Mom--her father has cancer--has "created a line of merchandise and built an online store to raise money for cancer [research]."

Also, please pass along this info to friends and family through email, word-of-mouth, or posting it on your blog. Let's all join together in stopping this killer.
