The spirit in Pan Pacific Park was electric this year, and the enthusiasm that permeated the crowd was inspiring. It is a privilege to work with every one of you as we push hard to end cancer as a threat to women. Your support ensures that our doctors and scientists continue research that is giving us better treatments, improved screening, and saving lives. Together we are making a difference!
In this season of celebration, I want to thank everyone who made run for her 2011 such an outstanding success. I would also ask that as you celebrate with your relatives, use this time to learn more about any cancer history in your family. Knowing your familial risk for cancer is one of the best tools we have to keep you healthy and cancer free.
From the entire Women’s Cancer Program family, best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.
