    When I was unexpectedly diagnosed with colon cancer, Donna Shalala and her team at University of Miami-Sylvester threw me a lifeline. Five years later, I am not only alive but healthy. Surviving Colon Cancer is a valentine to thank them for my life and to let others know that colon cancer is an equal opportunity tormentor. It strikes the young, the old, the rich, the poor, men, and women. However, it is the one cancer that can be prevented before it becomes cancer. You have the opportunity to protect yourself.

      Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg battled colon cancer. Justice Ginsburg was diagnosed with colon cancer in 1999. Ten days later, I was in Washington for the International Women's Conference, and she was scheduled to speak. No one expected her to come. However, exactly on schedule she stepped onto the stage, perhaps a bit pale, but erect, and spoke to a standing ovation. When I wrote to request an interview, she agreed within fifteen minutes. She is an incredibly giving person.

        As a survivor of Colon Cancer, I can tell you that cancer is not fun. Colorectal cancer is an equal opportunity tormentor. It attacks the rich, the poor, the powerful, the famous, the young, the old, male, and female. But the good news is colon cancer can be prevented.

              DemocracyNow.org - The U.S. Supreme Court has unanimously dismissed the largest class action lawsuit in history filed by 1.5 million current and former female employees of Walmart, who say they were allegedly paid less and promoted less often than their male counterparts. The Court found women who worked at Walmart did not have enough in common to constitute a "class" in a class-action lawsuit. It did not address whether Walmart had discriminated against women, but in writing for the minority in part of the court's ruling, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote, that the “plaintiffs' evidence, including class members' tales of their own experiences, suggests that gender bias suffused Walmart's company culture." Democracy Now! interviews former Walmart employee Stephanie Odle, one of the original plaintiffs in the case, and to Liza Featherstone about the “limits of a courtroom remedy” in this case. Featherstone is the author of the book, "Selling Women Short: The Landmark Battle for Worker’s Rights at Wal-Mart."
