Million Cancer Survivors March on Capitol Hill

Million Cancer Survivors March on Capitol Hill
Event on 2014-06-01 11:00:00

Be 1 In A Million — Uniting the Cancer Community for Change 

The Million Cancer Survivor March is the first ever attempt to organize an anti-cancer march and rally in Washington, DC on June 1, 2014 for National Cancer Survivor Day .

America's cancer population, a nation of patients, survivors, caregivers, friends, families, advocates and organizations, all citizens affected by all types of cancer, will gather in Washington D.C. at the National Mall to mark this historic advocacy event. The MCSM offers an opportunity for our country’s cancer community to rally at our Nation’s Capitol and show the leaders of our country that we are one group united to compel changes to end all cancers.

Nearly 12 million people nationwide are living with cancer. By the year 2020, the number of cancer survivors in the US is expected to double. They have faced a diagnosis and survived the treatments, therefore labeled “survivors.” As for the more than half a million that lost their life to cancer last year alone, they left behind countless numbers of grieving loved ones. We are the cancer population, living with the after-effects of a cancer diagnosis. We share one belief: Something has to change.

Cancer accounts for nearly 1 in 4 deaths in the US. If it isn’t you, it’s someone you know. This disease kills well over half a million people every year and costs our country millions of dollars to treat annually. Yet our government, the number-one funder of cancer research has drastically cut budgets for the National Institutes for Health, the National Cancer Institute and the Centers of Disease Control, thus limiting prevention and research for all cancers. The National Institutes of Health estimates overall costs of cancer in 2010 at 3.8 billion: 2.8 billion for direct medical costs (total of all health expenditures); .9 billion for indirect morbidity costs (cost of lost productivity due to illness); and 0.1 billion for indirect mortality costs (cost of lost productivity due to premature death) according to the American Cancer Society. Modern science has made advances in survivability, but it doesn’t end with being a survivor. The treatments, which are sometimes ineffective and even deadly, put survivors at risk of developing new forms of cancer, new diseases, other health issues and the possibility of reoccurrence is still there. Some patients don’t have access to the best treatment by means of seeking and having access to specialists because of insurance or lack there of (the Affordable Care Act doesn’t come into affect until 2014). Cancer, before, during and after treatment, can cause financial burdens, forcing people to stop treatment, lose their jobs, their homes and even declare bankruptcy. At what point will we stop putting a bandaid on cancer and find a cure, find better ways to detect it and treat it early and with less harmful methods? Our Nation’s leaders want our votes, and we want them to end the War on Cancer!

The Million Cancer Survivors March is free, a signature event by Kill The Beast in partnership with Pink Sky At Night. It is not affiliated with any cancer organization and is working independently as concerned American citizens to organize an anti-cancer march and rally in Washington, DC. The MCSM supports survivors and anyone affected by cancer, and we hope together to empower our American citizens to collectively make their voices heard.

If your organization is interested in speaking at the MCSM, please submit your organization’s name, website, mission statement and contact information to dgkaufman@killthecancerbeast.com. For sponsorship and media inquiries contact us at dgkaufman@killthecancerbeast.com.

Best Western Plus Executive Inn Seattle.

Best Western in the world’s largest hotel chain. In recent years, the chain has created three brand names to distinguish its properties and their amenities. The basic Best Western, the mid-priced Best Western Plus and the upper-scale Best Western Premier.

I booked the Best Western Plus Executive Inn Seattle, and was very satisfied with both the room and the service.

Is vaccine a type of medicine?

February 28th, 2014

Question by ipod.addict123: Is vaccine a type of medicine?
I’m doing a school project about medicine… and I just needed to know if vaccine was a medicine.. is it/

Best answer:

Answer by Waenhir
Vaccines are not medicines but are actually agents which contain a small amount of the virus that is injected into your body for your white blood cells to fight. Your body will then be able to recognise the virus the next time it attacks and become immune to it.
There are many types of vaccines:
1) Flu, cholera vaccines are actually dead viruses that had been killed.
2) Tuberculosis vaccine, a non-contagious strain called “BCG” are a live virus. (I have had that. It leaves a small scar on you arm.)
3) Toxic based vaccines are used for fighting virus that are caused by the tonic in the organisms.
4) Protein vaccines like vaccines against Hepatitis B virus are taken from the surface proteins of the virus.
5) Conjugate vaccine is used for bacteria invasion. It creates an immunity to the bacteria.
6) DNA vaccines go into the core of a virus’ DNA and use that as a fight against it.

There are also some new vaccines but these are the only ones I know.
