Idea for Us All to Try--Please

September is Gynecologic Cancer Awareness Month. OK--we know that. much do you see/hear during September.
Pretty quiet, isn't it?


I just took literally a couple of minutes to e-mail CNN both for website (health) and CNN TV and told them about Sept. Gyn. Cancer Awareness Month--referred them to aCS and NCI sites and asked them to do awareness during September.

It can't hurt. Anyone so inclined, please go to CNN and maybe you'll think of some other national sites. Also, please contact your local TV stations. I've done initial contact with our main three TV network stations here and sent a packet of information and a request for Sept. I know they plan features in advance. I will do a followup as well.

Wouldn't it be great--Sept. Gyn. Cancer Awareness month really nationally acknowledged and discussed?

You go girlfriend.
I am right behind you.
When the ovca symptom story broke the other day, (even if we knew it wasn't new news, at least they were concentrating on three BIG symptoms) I emailed my local ABC, CBS, and NBC as well as the national networks.
To congratulate them on having the story so fast and saying we need more!!!!
I did receive one lovely email in return promising more coverage.
Apparently a 27 year old woman in their studio has just been diagnosed with ovca.
But we all need to remember to praise them when they do something positve for us, and not just criticise in an attempt to get more.

I am always quick to praise or do a "thank you"--I was on e-mail to the editor of the newspaper that had the news on page 1. Right now I'm planting the seed--will do CNN again in July a couple times, then August weekly... Now if local sources will do things...
