PANCREATIC CANCER & PLASTIC POLLUTION … FIGHTING TWO SILENT KILLERS

October 16, 2009

I am passionate about fighting plastic pollution  … I am equally passionate about fighting pancreatic cancer, a disease my family knows all too well . My mother and my step-dad lost their fight against this disease.

Ironically, pancreatic cancer and plastic pollution have a lot in common … both are silent killers &  both are not recognized by the public.

We usually hear about plastic pollution as Earth Day approaches , when the MSM decides its time to ratchet up its coverage about being green.

We hear about pancreatic cancer only when a celebrity like Patrick Swayze passes away.  What we hear afterward are the sounds of silence. {{crickets … hello … anyone there? crickets}}

These are issues that are, for the most part, out of sight and out of mind. It’ time to shine light on both of these killers.

Today Say No to Plastic is waging an ongoing campaign to help defeat these two scourges.  When you go to the Silent Killers tab you can make a donation that will work for both causes.

Your donation will be equally divided between Ocean Keepers and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.

November is pancreatic cancer awareness month.  Please help!
