The Minnesota Ovarian Cancer Alliance (www.mnovarian.org) makes a difference in in our state.

This organization offers support, information and resources to help those in their healing journey. Unfortunately they do not provide financial help to patients. Nor do any others.

They meet the Charities Review Council Standards (smartgivers.org). They are listed as a Community Health Charity. I have talked to the program manager about their mission, where their money goes, and their awareness materials. I also have picked up their materials through the years. The belong to The Valued Guide Star Exchange. It is always best to check with Guide Star and Charity Navigator before donating money to non-profits. How much goes to research, salaries, operating? Also you can check Clinical Trials.gov to find out if they are getting federal monies for trials.

They have given  a lot of money to research that is documented. That is their main mission besides education medical providers.

Read this statement: ” SUPERYOU-MN.ORG–” You’ve Got the Power-The power to protect your family from cancer with genetic counseling. For those with a family history of breast or ovarian cancer, genetic counseling give you the super power to protect you and your family from cancer.

This organization funds ovarian cancer research and has awarded nearly $5 million to more than 60 research projects.

Reducing Breast Cancer Risk

Posted by peggysue on September 5, 2014 in Admirable, Courage, Food, Healthy Choices, Hope, Passion and Joy, Selfless People, Uncategorized with Comments closed |

Research has shown that the anti-diabetic drug, Metformin suppresses IGF-1 signaling in  human pancreatic cancer cells in culture. Research shows that women with plasma levels of IGF-1 with levels of less than 120 ng/mL are more likley to survive breast cancer according to a new article in the October 2014 Life Extensions magazine.

There are natural ways to suppress this receptor such as coffee and all the others are listed in the magazine. Always consult a physician when mixing different drugs with various nutrients.

It is important to reduce your exposure to carbohydrates and IGF-1. This very detailed article with documented research spanning 3 pages can be picked up at a magazine distributor such as Barnes and Noble.The title of the article is: Deadly Carbohydrates-The Lethal Sugar/Cancer Connection by S. Martinson
