UPDATE: Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC)

I received the following comment to my blog post about Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) last night and I thought that I I should share it with you.

Thank you Mike for keeping this story going. Every man woman and child needs to know about this devastating breast cancer.
Sadly, in the first video my daughter Kristine (Tina) lost her battle on August 29, 2007. In the second video Deena lost her battle just 4 months before Tina. They are our angels now, watching to make sure we keep spreading the word, there is a breast cancer without a lump, and mammograms rarely see it.”

Patti Bradfield, President
The Inflammatory Breast Cancer Foundation

Patti,
I am deeply sorry for your loss.
The good Lord had a purpose for your daughter, so you can feel comfort in knowing that her death was not in vain, because of her and Deena many more are now aware of this deadly disease.
Several women close to me have either passed away due to breast cancer or have been diagnosed and are living with it so if there is anything else that I can do to make others aware of IBC please let me know and I will pas it along.

All the best

If you haven’t seen the Video’s about thus deadly disease yet please see my earlier blog post on the subject of IBC

>McCain’s history of hot temper raises concerns

>By David Lightman and Matt Stearns | McClatchy Newspapers

WASHINGTON — John McCain made a quick stop at the Capitol one day last spring to sit in on Senate negotiations on the big immigration bill, and John Cornyn was not pleased.

Cornyn, a mild-mannered Texas Republican, saw a loophole in the bill that he thought would allow felons to pursue a path to citizenship.

McCain called Cornyn’s claim “chicken-s—,” according to people familiar with the meeting, and charged that the Texan was looking for an excuse to scuttle the bill. Cornyn grimly told McCain he had a lot of nerve to suddenly show up and inject himself into the sensitive negotiations.

“F— you,” McCain told Cornyn, in front of about 40 witnesses.

It was another instance of the Republican presidential candidate losing his temper, another instance where, as POW-MIA activist Carol Hrdlicka put it, “It’s his way or no way.”

There’s a lengthy list of similar outbursts through the years: McCain pushing a woman in a wheelchair, trying to get an Arizona Republican aide fired from three different jobs, berating a young GOP activist on the night of his own 1986 Senate election and many more.

McCain observers say the incidents have been blown out of proportion.

“I’ve never seen anything in the way of an outburst of temper that struck me as anything out of the ordinary,” said McCain biographer Robert Timberg.

“Those reports are overstated,” said Rives Richey, who attended Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Va., with McCain in the early 1950s.

Historians point out that it’s not unusual for a president to have a fierce temper, but most knew how to keep it under control.

“Harry Truman wrote scathing letters, but he almost never sent them,” said author Robert Dallek.

“George Washington spent a lifetime trying to control his temper,” added historian Richard Norton Smith.

But Washington didn’t have YouTube replaying videos of his tantrums, nor did he have to make decisions about nuclear weapons.
