This young entrepreneur created Bravelets jewelry to inspire hope in those coping with cancer and other diseases. Bravelets is also a great way to fundraise for a cause you love.
Offering cause jewelry, Bravelets was started by a daughter who wanted to create a symbol of bravery for her mom who has cancer. It's a great fundraiser.

If you want to help a friend who has #Cancer, this physician and #CancerSurvivor suggests you “Send a housekeeper to clean up their place. Take care of the details so they just need to be there to open the door.” This is a great list from someone with first-hand experience. http://huff.to/XeVQrc

Does where you live affect your cancer risk? Data collected by the American Cancer Society illustrates how residents in certain states may be at a greater risk of developing cancer due to #cancerriskfactors like obesity, smoking and failure to receive early screenings. http://n.pr/1Sl5srq
The prevalence of smoking and other major cancer risk factors varies widely by state. So does the uptake for preventive screening tests.
