As you know, I am a breast cancer survivor (sometimes I say I’m a breast cancer treatment survivor). While the cancer is gone, the trauma of the treatments will have a detrimental effect on my health for the rest of my life. If only there had been someone with knowledge and information who could have taken me aside when I was in my 30s or 40s or 50s and shared with me the importance of vitamin D. Shortly after my diagnosis, I discovered my vitamin D level was 18 ng/ml. What if I knew then what I know now and had started supplementing and getting more sun at 40, or earlier, would I have gotten breast cancer? We can never know for sure what may have been different, but our research says that my risk would have been reduced by 50-80%. No one can go back and tell the younger me about vitamin D, but I can help spread the word to others today; and I hope that you will take the opportunity to spread the word as well.
Could you change the life of a woman you know? Would you like to? We have launched D*parties to do just that. We provide you with all the materials to host some women in your house. I challenge our readers to have 100 D*parties focused on breast cancer. What effect would that have in your communities? In the world?
We appreciate you, our D*action members and followers. Without you, this research would not be possible.
