Hi! I just watched your interview by Katie Couric, and congratulations and thank you for the touching work, and I applaud your other wonderful work. Just in case you are not aware, I want to suggest some resources related to this important issue of cancers and indicate that many possible causes of cancers are human made and preventable by, for example, government regulations, but the governments are not doing their job. As you might know, numerous chemicals have been produced by a variety of industries especially since the mid-20th century, and we are all exposed on a daily basis - most, however, are not even regulated at all by the government. Many researchers have preliminary evidence that many of these chemicals are responsible for many diseases, such as cancers, ADHD, and other developmental problems (inherited genes cannot account for the vast majority of cancer cases). I encourage you to check out these information as a starter: https://www.commondreams.org/headline/2014/05/12-2 (link to a scientific report) A documentary: "Unsafe: The Truth Behind Everyday Chemicals", 2013, 27 mins, http://www.linktv.org/video/9214/unsafe-the-truth-behind-everyday-chemicals (available for free at this site) Since you're from Chicago, I'm sure you are aware that low income minority neighborhoods are more likely exposed to toxic chemicals, thereby affecting their health conditions among others. The above documentary discuss this issue, too. But, let me suggest a Chicago example. "Altgeld Gardens: Life in a Toxic Environment", 2009, 5:22 minutes at http://vimeo.com/6688840 Thank you for your attention and time. Keep up your great work! Best wishes!!
