As a prostate cancer survivor I am always called on to take some action and to advise people, to encourage people. I was therefore saddened by this letter from the American Cancer Society as penned by the Deputy President. please read on and decide for yourself if this isn't even more the reasons why you should take care of yourself. Good health must start with us. Good health like good manners must be practiced from home.

This is what I know ... and it can't be refuted.
- Colon cancer research saves lives
- Federal funding for cancer research is down 26% since 2003, adjusting for inflation
Today, we're launching a massive new campaign - the One Degree Project - with our friends at Stand Up to Cancer. We're calling on Congress to increase cancer research by $1 billion over the next two years. Yes, billion with a b!
We all know someone who's fought cancer (it might even be you). That means we're all just One Degree away from this terrible disease.
I need you to take just 60 seconds to sign our petition calling on Congress to restore this lifesaving funding. Our petition will also allow you to share the name of your One Degree - your closest connection to cancer.
We'll assemble all of the petition signatures and One Degree names into a massive petition to your Members of Congress.
Scientists say the next major cancer breakthrough could be very close. But without more colon cancer research, it will remain out of reach.
Sign the petition and let's make sure the voices of those touched by colon cancer are heard loudly and clearly in the halls of Congress.
