(Harrisburg) -- This month minor league ballparks across the state will host amateur home-run derbies, and many of the teams are captained by state lawmakers. The series of contests is part of the "Take a Swing Against Breast Cancer" campaign organized by the PA Breast Cancer Coalition to raise money for breast cancer research.

HARRISBURG, PA— Some studies have shown that blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, can reduce biochemical failure––cancer recurrence that is detected by a rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) level––the risk of metastasis and even death in localized prostate cancer. These studies, although very telling, have all emphasized the need for more data. Now, with researchers at Philadelphia’s Fox Chase Cancer Center having concluded the largest study on this topic, there is substantial data suggesting that aspirin improves outcomes in prostate cancer patients who have received radiotherapy.

HARRISBURG, Pa.  (August, 27 2011) – From Los Angeles to Atlanta to Harrisburg, Free to Breathe® event participants across the country will walk, run, stretch and tee off this year to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by lung cancer through the National Lung Cancer Partnership’s research, education and awareness programs. Harrisburg-area residents will have their chance to join the movement at the second annual Free to Breathe® Harrisburg 5K Run/Walk on August 27, starting from Riverview Pavilion on City Island.
