It has been suggested in another post that maybe a Fund in the name of MamaBlue be created and donations taken for Breast Cancer Research. I have no Idea how to start a fund but I do Know I would be more than happy to make a Donation in MamaBlues name. Sorry about your loss. I lost someone close to me and at first I felt I lost something and with time I realized I lost nothing because I still felt the influence and the love of that person even stronger than before. Sorry only time realy helps.
hey man, I don't want to sound too negative but from my experience donating to "research funds" is not a very practical thing... a very small portion of the monies ends up going directly to actual research..
If you REALLY want to do something then convince all the females in your family to be screened for breast cancer if they fit the screening criteria.
While you are at it, have every male family member over 50 get screened for prostate cancer and have a colonoscopy.
And every female family member greater than 18 and those that are less than 18 but sexually active get a Pap and get screened for HPV.
And anyone who smokes in your family should be encouraged to stop. Don't order junk/fast food anymore and cut down on alcohol consumption.
These behaviour modifications and screening practices would probably solve a lot of the of health care problems ubiquitous to the North American population. A lot more effective than starting a fund for breast cancer research.
Just my opinion though...
