A Colorful Cure?

White, hot pink, lavender, leopard, none

Who knew being viral could be such fun.

but what color you wearness

should turn into awareness

Or what was it we were supposed to have done?

Worse than any virus is cancer

It should never be left to chance or

there will be no hope.

For the best way to cope,

Early detection is the best answer.

If you are over 40 have a mammogram

Over and under do a monthly self exam

If you’ve some money to give

It could help someone live

If you don’t, click this link, it’s not spam.

While humor is used to draw attention, cancer is no laughing matter. Cancer claimed the lives of my own mother and two other people very dear to me.

According to livestrong.com, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. However, improvements in cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment have increased the survival rate for many types of cancer. About 64 percent of all people diagnosed with cancer will be alive 5 years after diagnosis.

Please take a moment of your time to help yourself and others. The links I have included throughout this limerick are all American organizations. If any of my Jordanian readers have information regarding donating or educating oneself to cancer, please let me know and I will include them as well.
