Tues. Feb. 4: World Cancer Day

In honor of current Westminster students, Westminster parents and friends, my parents, and everyone else we know affected by cancer, find a way to support someone this Tuesday, World Cancer Day 2014. Ask people how their loved ones are doing after chemo or radiation. Ask even if chemo or radiation was five years ago. Offer to transport someone to treatment. Send a real card in the mail. Change your Facebook profile to a purple-tinted photo (link below). Debunk cancer myths. Donate to the American Cancer Society or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or your favorite cancer charity.

Everyone can do something.

Here are three links to webpages with more information.
