WDAM Viewpoint- Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Few things strike terror into a human being than to be told that they have Cancer.  Cancer is a scourge that has touched almost all of us either first hand or second hand with its horrible consequences.  We've all had close friends and loved ones beset with this awful disease even if we have so far escaped it ourselves.  Here at WDAM we've lost 3 long term and cherished co-workers and members of the channel seven family in the past several weeks to cancer of one kind of cancer or another.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month as we are reminded every time we see the color pink.  Medical science has come a very long way in fighting this enemy of the human body…but many treatments and cures still elude us.  Let's use this month to raise our awareness of cancer of all kinds.  Check yourself or get checkups regularly.  Give generously to cancer research.  Wear pink as a reminder that we still have a long way to go against this formidable and hated foe. 

I'm Jim Cameron.  Let us know what you think.
