A news report earlier this week profiled the work of two strong women. The two women formed DeCesaris-Prout Cancer Foundation which raises money towards cancer prevention and research. This money has gone to a variety of large and small organizations including the work of the American Cancer Society. This alone is something to write home about. These women didn't have to set up such an organization or contribute so much to the cause. But it is the personal stories driving these women that really speak to the power they exhibit. These are stories which have driven them to the work that they're doing but also which speaks to the strength that has helped them survive through difficult times. For example, one of the women had a series of medical problems that she was concerned might be ovarian cancer. She went to her doctor who told her that she basically had a weight problem and that she would be fine. Instead of just taking the word of her doctor, she insisted that a CT scan be done. Indeed, it was found that she had cancer. This is the cause behind her support of cancer research but also speaks to the power of her own personality. Question of the Day: Would you take a doctor's diagnosis such as this one at face value or insist on a preventive scan?
