you know I agree w/all of you....and I know a very nice man, he is 94 and has seen quite a bit in his life, lots of wisdom etc.....and one day he was visiting and I wouldnt want to shake him up or argue etc with him, as he is my buddy...but we chatted about BC as he has been a great person to me prior to bc and now, but you know I think kind of like he does, yes we need to spread the word on BC, but he mentioned prostrate cancer, and I agree as he said they need to know more and more knowlege about that too.....ALL the cancers do.
BC to us is at the top of the list and it is! but so many others are also, as so many men dont realize what man be going on in their bodies...but he promotes yes BC, and I think if I wasnt one of the stats he wouldnt know much.....
About getting to the media, on one channel here they have like at he 5 pm news soemthing called "medical in the news" and they chat and let ya know, but so I think they need to know more, not just diff races to raise monies, but to actually know.
when some solisitor calls on the phone, and its an easy one about which channel do you liten to on the radio, I say sure I'll take your quik survey IF you listen to what i have to say afterwards about what I have to say...so he does his quick talk then hasnt forgetten what i said and says "ok mam" what do you now have to say...and I start by saying are you married, so you have a wife, do you have a daughter, neice, goodfriend, girlfriend, etc etc "of women" and usually answer yes, and then I kind of tell him and try to be brief as I dont want to not take his time but give him some important things about his wife, daughter, girlfriend etc..and so many of them have questions that who ever they are talking about have brought up a lump etc and doesnt know what and where to turn...yes I give him this add of bc.org if they have a computer, and they www.y-me.org site as they have a group of women who can answer questions on the phone or direct them in the right direction...they also have many diff languages so the person who called can talk to someone in their language.....
I also do this to people at maybe a store or where ever I may be, and they do want to listen and learn, especially if a loved one has or brought up the topic of not knowing what and where to go.
Just FYI on what I do...and yes Ive wrote alot here and appologize, but then again I dont' as we need all sorts of ideas here to get the word of BC.....
hope this helps a little.
It's better to be effective than it is to be right.-
