"I love you, Lord; you are my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety." (Psalm 18:1-2, NLT)

I wanted to alert the members of this team to a vital research project that I just learned about today. The Sister Study: Breast Cancer Research.
Since I have had two sisters who lost their battle to this terrible disease, I have signed up for the study. Both of my sisters were diagnosed with Breast Cancer before they were 40. During their treatment, I felt totally helpless. No matter what I did to help them and their families to cope with the effects of the treatments, sitting by their hospital beds, and even caring for their children, I still felt helpless in the battle against Breast Cancer. No more! I can help in this research and perhaps help others by finding a cure. I can also help spread the word to other women to join the study.
You should join the Sister Study if —
*Your sister, related to you by blood, had breast cancer. *You are between the ages of 35 and 74. *You have never had breast cancer yourself. *You are a woman living in the U.S. or Puerto Rico.
If you have fought this terrible disease and have a sister, please tell them about this study. They will rejoice at the opportunity to contribute to the effort to discover a cure.
The Sister Study is the only long-term study of women aged 35 to 74 whose sister had breast cancer. It is a national study to learn how environment and genes affect the chances of getting breast cancer.
The Sister Study needs at least 50,000 women to join the effort to find the causes of breast cancer. They still need more women of all backgrounds, occupations, ages, and ethnic groups to join
Please see the web site at http://www.sisterstudy.org/English/index1. htm
If you have had a sister that has had breast cancer, please be part of the solution.
If you are eligible, join the Sister Study today and tell other women about the study!
Woman by woman… Sister by sister… We can make a difference!
