What does Breast Cancer Awareness mean to McGill University?

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is of great importance to me personally and to so many people. I would like to share a video with everyone that I think is absolutely amazing. Everyone in this video is a scientist, student, lab technician, faculty member at McGill or a doctor. These people along with many hard workingl volunteers did such a wonderful job with this video that highlights only some of the work that is done at The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre located in Montreal, Quebec. This centre first opened in 1978 and was originally called McGill Cancer Centre.

The sponsors of this video, "Medicom, state that a donation will be made for each hit to support advances in cancer research at the Goodman Cancer Research Centre."

The Rosalind and Morris Goodman Cancer Research Centre

The centre was renamed after receiving a very generous donation from Rosalind and Morris Goodman-Owen Egan. Mrs. Goodman who attended McGill University graduated in 1963 receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mr. Goodman spent one year at McGill doing his undergraduate degree here before attending Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Montreal. They loved McGill so much and wanted their children to have the best education possible. Three of their four children studied at McGill.

Important discoveries are made at this centre on a daily basis focusing on improvement for treatment of cancer and prevention. For more information on this centre please click here.

Thank goodness for these types of people! Every person is special, but those who dedicate their lives to making the world a better place and especially with the fight against cancer have a special place in my heart. Thank you for sharing this video and reminding me to remember those who have fought with cancer and against cancer!

Dynamite!! My kid loves this album and it has been playing in our home for a while.

Loved how all the hospital authorities co-ordinated to dance on it. What a way to show their equality and their focus!

Here's a shout-out to McGill for their work in cancer research and to you, Susan, for reporting it so well.

Had a thought about those three doctors dancing near the end of the video. Enghusiasm, yes. A choice of Dancing as an elctive, no.

The video was superb and the song wonderful!!

I think the 3 older guys in the lab were definately the best dancers!!LOL! I'm sure that this video will inspire anyone who watches it to have hope and be positive about the future, whether they unfortunately suffer from the illness or are recovering from it. I loved the logo 'A Team Spirit For a Lonely illness' this says it all about these remarkable people and the invaluable work they do.

Video and hub voted up + awesome!!

Good song, yes, and a good job dancing by a bunch of scientists (I was going to say eggheads but decided not to.) Good hub, Susan, I enjoyed the bloopers at the end too, and after seeing the bloopers I think these people did a great job!
