OK, so it won't change history YET!

Researchers have been working on a vaccine for breast cancer tumors for 10 years...they now have a vaccine that targets tumors and stops them from growing.

Apparently they're hopeful to come up with a breast cancer vaccine in time. (10 to 20 yrs)

This is wonderful news...my mother is having a mastectomy on Wednesday. Hopefully, she will have available to her the vaccine if more tumors come back via clinical trails!

This is her second round of breast cancer please say a prayer for her on Wednesday...:)


*when this was told to us this morning from a reporter--it was our understanding there WAS a vaccine to prevent breast cancer. Still good news!

Breast cancer is such an awful disease. I've watched two people die from it. Anything that slows or stops it is good news in my book.

I am thinking about your mother & will continue to.

This is good news. I hope this comes to fruition before they believe it will. That's wonderful for us & our kids.

I really hope that the research continues & leads to other cancer treatments that actually eliminate the disease or at least prevent it from ever returning in a body that has had to fight it.

Stay strong!
