Let's Put the "Brakes on Breast Cancer"
26 independent auto repair shops from different states in the U.S., have joined together to support and bring awareness to Vincent Tuohy, PhD of the Cleveland Clinic's Breast Cancer Prevention Vaccine.
Dr. Touy has created a vaccine that is effective in preventing breast cancer in mice. He is ready to take it to clinical trial in humans.
I am a breast cancer survivor. I have a daughter, two sisters, a mother and a boat load of girlfriends that I never want to have to go through what I did. Breast cancer has touched everyone. Statistically, one out of every seven women in the United States will have breast cancer in their lifetime. That number is huge... and if this vaccine could move forward and succeed, the number could be 0.
The polio vaccine changed the world in 1952, and this vaccine could change the world once more. BUT, it needs some help to bring it into the limelight. The word needs to get out about this vaccine, so that Dr. Touy can get the support he needs to push it forward to clinical trial.
BrakesforBreasts.org is the website that our group of 26 shop owners has created. If you go there and you scroll down, you will see a pink link that takes you to The Cleveland Clinic's website with more information about the vaccine.
Social Media can be a beautiful thing. Please help us spread the word and push this information forward!health Visit Project Website
