Petition Closed

If the PINK VACCINE is as safe and effective in women as it is in mice, it has the potential to eliminate 95% of all breast cancer worldwide. We must develop the PINK VACCINE right here in the United States where is was created by Professor Vincent Tuohy, not in China where it appears to be headed at the moment.

Let the record show, Professor Tuohy, winner of Cleveland Clinic's Sonnes' Innovation Award 2010, had his experimental data exhaustively vetted by a panel of experts before his paper was published in the peer-reviewed journal, "Nature Medicine" in May 2010.

See the Cleveland Clinic promotional video for details: bit.ly/TuohyVaccine.

This appeal is made on behalf of the 5 women who started this campaign for the PINK VACCINE, the Champions for the Pink Vaccine - four breast cancer survivors and one breast cancer surgeon.

We're going right to the top! This appeal is being made directly to the President. Mr. President, you must help protect every woman in this country and around the world from breast cancer. Only you can do it. Thus far, every other organization has refused to give it a chance. This is worse than the sacking of Rome!

As Mary Lasker said in the full-page ad she took out in the New York Times in 1970: "Do something, Mr. Nixon."

To which I would echo: Do something Mr. Obama!

Letter to
Breast Health and Healing Foundation President Obama, and every woman concerned about preventing breast cancer.
I just signed the following petition addressed to: President Obama, and every woman concerned about preventing breast cancer..

Fund the PINK VACCINE, the world's first preventive breast cancer vaccine.

This appeal is made by the Champions for the Pink Vaccine - four breast cancer survivors and one breast cancer surgeon who've banded together in an affinity group to see that this vaccine gets funded.

We're going right to the top! This appeal is being made directly to the President. Mr. President, you must help protect every woman in this country and around the world from breast cancer. Only you can do it. Thus far, every other organization has refused to give it a chance. Make no mistake, leaving the world's first preventive breast cancer vaccine to collect dust on the shelf at the Cleveland Clinic is a national disgrace, worse than the sacking of Rome, for it is a self-inflicted wound that cuts into the vital force of civilization, its women.

Mary Lasker, activist responsible for crafting the "National Cancer Attack Act" , launched her campaign with a full-page ad published in the New York Times in 1970. It began, "Mr. Nixon, you can cure cancer."

Mrs. Lasker's statement was 9 parts hype and 1 part hope: but she successfully prevailed upon the President and the country to declare a "war on cancer' - a war that Nancy Brinker turned into a race, a race that has become a marathon, a marathon that has become more mirage than miracle, a miracle that hovers, ghostlike, over the graves of literally millions of women who have died of breast cancer since the great pink war began.

If there is a vaccine that might prevent breast cancer - and there seems to be - then we should spend a portion of the billions allocated to breast cancer research, diagnosis, and treatment to see if it's safe for use in women. (Approximately $6 million) If it is safe, we should spend additional money to see if it is effective. (Another $12 million) If it is effective, we should develop it, here in the United States not in China.

In summary, we implore you, Mr. President, please do something!
