You too can make a difference

Written by InvoKause on September 27, 2009 – 8:32 pm -

The Buckeyes For A Cure program will sell individual buckeyes through this site for $2.50 each. A significant portion of each buckeye sold will go directly to the Stefanie Spielman Fund. Initially, Stefanie and Chris Spielman had a goal of raising $250,000. Today – through their work and the extraordinary grassroots support by Community Partners – more than $6.5 million has been raised to support breast cancer patients and research at Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.

Did you know?:

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer (other than skin cancer) in women. It affects hundreds of thousands of women in the United States each year, including more than 200,000 newly diagnosed cases.

A woman’s risk of developing breast cancer over her lifetime is 1 in 8, or 12 percent.

A breast cancer can be found on a mammogram, or it can be felt by the woman herself or by her physician. Not all breast cancers can be detected by those means, but regular mammograms and breast examinations greatly increase the chances of detection and successful treatment.

Although rare, with only about 1,600 newly diagnosed cases per year, male breast cancer is an important disease. Unfortunately, due to its rarity, it is often not readily diagnosed.

The Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research is devoted to advancing research in breast cancer. Over the past few years, the fund has supported researchers and their efforts in fighting breast cancer.

Even though there has been a lot of progress made towards the advancement of breast cancer research there is still much work to do! By purchasing a buckeye you will help make a difference in finding a cure.

    My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting Stefanie and Chris Spielman on the first Buckeye Cruise for Cancer in 2008. She was truly an amazing woman! It is wonderful to be able to help Chris carry on her legacy.
