Penn Team Finds Ovarian Cancer Oncogene in "Junk DNA"

http://www.uphs.upenn.edu/news/News_Releases/2014/09/zhang/

For those of you interested in genetics, here is a fascinating article relating new findings with "junk DNA" and it's effect on BRCA genes and mutations.

I am not a scientist myself, it takes time to read.

What impresses me is that this particular type of research enables us to create a way to stop cancer if the links are proven and consistent.

There is always hope.  I thank my cousin for sending this to me from Penn State.


Peace and Blessings,

The Seattle Great Wheel Turns Teal

The Seattle Great Wheel is a hometown favorite, not just because it's lighting displays are so colorful, but also due to the company's contribution to the Seattle community. 

After my treatment last week I went down to the Wheel, it was  pure TEAL.  As you may be aware, September is ovarian and gynecological cancer awareness month.  Being able to benefit from this beautiful display of color makes us happy. 

The folks at The Seattle Great Wheel care.

I have been exhausted and extremely scatter-brained. For example, I have actually misplaced purchased groceries three times in the last 2 months.  I am overheated all the time. My hands have not really worked well for almost a year now.

I just stumble along doing my best to make a difference.

Thank you Seattle Great Wheel. www.seattlegreatwheel.com

Please share this with 100 women.......you will make a difference.

I hope you enjoy the ride and the beautiful view.

Love,

Pierce Brosnan : Joining Our Forces To Disarm Ovarian Cancer



Pierce Brosnan shared with the nation a few hours ago the enormous pain and suffering he and his family endured due to ovarian cancer.  He lost both his loving wife and adoring daughter to this terrible disease.  

He stepped on stage during the Stand Up 2 Cancer Event on 09-05-14 with hopeful eyes and an urgent voice.  He brought with him a powerful message.  A message that the three most powerful non-profit organizations dedicated to ending ovarian cancer are teaming up to save lives.  

I feel confident and empowered.  I hope you feel the same.

Please watch this moving You Tube video clip and go to the OCRF website for their important press release and details about this unprecedented movement in ovarian cancer research.

I pray for his family and the souls of his dearly dearly departed wife and daughter.

Peace and Blessings,
