Army of Women - Breast Cancer Research
Army of Women is one of thousands of sites devoted to eradicating breast cancer, but this one has a brilliant approach. Instead of gathering a group of women who already have breast cancer and testing various possible cures on them, Army of Women wants to perform cancer research on one million HEALTHY women. All you have to do to help is a) be a healthy woman, and b) sign up for free. Every month, you will receive an email detailing research projects that need volunteers within a certain demographic. For example, some researchers want to examine women who are between 50-59 who have never had children; others might want women between 30-39 who had a child before the age of 18, and so on. Currently, the Army of Women has roughly 250,000 women on their email list, but their goal is to reach a million. If you don't want to sign up, or can't because you aren't a member of the fairer sex, you can still drop $5 on a "Beyond the Cure" pendant and help the cause. Spread the word. By gathering as many volunteers -- and as much information -- as possible, one day breast cancer will be a distant memory.
