Of course. I mean, for the end of 2009 and the better part of 2010 my mom was battling breast cancer. She is young, relatively healthy, optimistic woman who did win the battle. She's been cancer free for 3 months and I'm so happy to report that. So I have obviously seen the affect that breast cancer can have on a women and a family. I get it. I do, I truly do. So this is the love side of how I feel about raising breast cancer awareness...
The hate side is as follows:
- Breast cancer is not the only cancer women face or the only one deserving of attention.
- Diseases like heart disease are bigger killers of women.
- And yet, like all aspects of society, there is a hyper focus on boobies.
- Finally, how far does awareness actually go vs. actual action?
