Monday's health links

This seems to be a quiet week in cancer research news. A quick scan of the news sites does remind me, however, that we are entering the season of the cancer run. I encourage you to throw a little cash the way of any of your friends or neighbours who are getting off their butts in the name of cancer research this spring and summer. Some organizations do a better job than others of making sure funds raised get into the hands of researchers. I'll let you pick the one that you most trust. In the end, the act of running or walking in the name of someone you know who has been touched by cancer is a powerful thing. When we know so little about what we can actually DO to fight cancer, it is an empowering experience to think that this small act, putting one foot in front of the other again and again, is what might lead to the dollar that leads to the cure.

So, only one link today, from a recent concert in New York, the sublime Matisyahu singing "One Day" with the help of Luke Weber, a young fan currently battling cancer. via Shalom Life.
