Somebody Hold Us All

Abby Zimet

To remind us of the life and death battle so many face each day, an extraordinary photo of Aileen Crimmings O'Brien Graef, who died today at 46 of breast cancer. Shortly before she died, her brother brought her dog Jethro from her home to the hospice to say goodbye. At least 1 in 8 American  women will get breast cancer in their lifetime. From Boing Boing.

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news outlet. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Won't Exist.
