breast cancer is a common malignancy, with almost 200,000 new cases diagnosed in the United States each year.
Palos Park, IL (PRWEB) September 25, 2007
Online women's health community, http://www.Womens-Health.com, is joining the fight against breast cancer during October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The forum will contribute up to $10,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, based on the number of new threads started by community members. This allows members to directly get involved with the donation process without having to contribute their own funds, while becoming better educated about breast cancer issues themselves.
"We want to do our part to help fight breast cancer and raise awareness of this often tragic disease afflicting women worldwide," says Anthos Chrysanthou, founder of Womens-Health.com. "We want to give the members of our community a chance to get involved in raising money to support the cause, while taking part in discussions to allow them to become better educated about breast cancer and other women's health issues."
According to the Breast Cancer Information Center, "breast cancer is a common malignancy, with almost 200,000 new cases diagnosed in the United States each year."
Womens-Health.com is a free online health community where women can discuss female health issues from stress to pregnancy to diseases such as breast cancer. The site will be contributing ten cents for each new discussion thread started by members during the month of October. New threads are not limited to the discussion of breast cancer, but instead any health issue affecting women. Membership is free, and can be initiated through a simple registration form on the site.
