President Bush signs a proclamation declaring our nations support for our fight with Prostate Cancer. Sadly, these are only empty words as once again all cancer research, including prostate cancer research, has taken a real dollar hit!

George Bush and our congress don’t really care. I guess that they all view themselves as invulnerable. Someone should tell them that they too can get cancer.

Shame on our nation. We are more invested in killing people then in finding ways to remove suffering and extend lives.
