I was going to post about Blog Out Loud Ottawa (#boloottawa) but that's going to have to wait because I want to tell you all about something that's happening tomorrow.
The text reads:
"The Honourable Dr. Hedy Fry, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Centre and Federal Liberal Health Critic, will be joined by the Canadian Breast Cancer Network to discuss the tabling of her Private Member’s Bill calling for a National Metastatic Breast Cancer Day on October 13th of each year. The Canadian Breast Cancer Network will be represented by Ms. Niya Chari, Government Relations Manager. Ms. Laurie Kingston will represent the Metastatic Breast Cancer community."I paused for a moment at the description of my role at the table but then realized how very accurate it is. As much as I wish I didn't have metastatic breast cancer, I am very proud to consider myself part of the MBC community. I'm among some very good, smart, organized, supportive, strong advocates for change.
Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day has already been designated by the US Congress and Senate. A Canadian MBC Awareness Day won't effect change on its own but it's a step in the right direction.
