Bravo to the South Hampton Chamber of Commerce Long Island NY for this clever holiday themed display to promote breast cancer awareness. A month-long series of “Paint the Town Pink” events and activities aimed at highlighting the cause and combating breast cancer follows a pink tree lighting event on October 1. Throughout the month of October, village trees will be lit in orange during the day, because they appear pink, and pink lights at night.

Overcoming aggressive breast cancer with a new drug
A drug that boosts chemotherapy success could be used to treat aggressive breast cancers, according to scientists at the London-based Institute of Cancer Research. The drug forces cancer cells to divide quickly, making even chemo-resistant cancers susceptible to treatment. Multiplying faster than normal produces errors within the cancer cells and means chemotherapy is more likely to kill them.  http://www.inkl.com/news/new-drug-may-prove-key-to-overcoming-aggressive-breast-cancer?
