Giving Tuesday: Help advance medical research

CTCA

Today is Giving Tuesday, a globally-recognized day dedicated to charitable giving. Last year on Giving Tuesday, donors gave more than $19 million to nonprofit organizations.

This year, PatientsLikeMe, an online patient network, is teaming up with our Philadelphia hospital to encourage a different kind of donation—health data. Over the next “24 Days of Giving,” people with cancer can help advance medical research simply by sharing their health information.

National Diabetes Awareness Month brings attention to a disease that affects nearly 30 million Americans, with another 86 million Americans at risk for developing the disease.

People with diabetes have an increased risk of heart attack or stroke, kidney failure, vision loss and nerve damage. Growing evidence also suggests that people with diabetes are at higher risk for developing certain cancers, including liver, pancreatic, endometrial, colorectal, breast and bladder.
