When Judy Lafferty prepares for a race like the annual cross-Iowa run, she makes sure her bike isin perfect shape. She inspects and adjusts every part. She tunes and balances the whole machine, so it can go the distance. Because she treats her body the same way, she discovered a lump in her breast a few years ago. She discovered it early And these days, 85% of early breast cancers can be treated successfully Judy has since had reconstructive surgery, too. And she feels like herself again. Alive, vibrant, ready to get on her bike and take on the world. Judy Lafferty is just one example of the kind of prog ress we're making against cancer in its many forms. The American Cancer Society takes some credit for that progress. But credit won't finance our work. We need your money to help us win this race. SHARE THE COST OF LIVING. GIVE TO THE AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY. This space contributed by the publisher as a public service.
