I shot out of my chair yelling at the screen as if I was live with tens of thousands of other WWE fans, wherever they were broadcasting from, except I’m screaming “WTF! Breast Cancer month is not until October! No fair!!"
When I first went shopping on line after my recovery from lung cancer surgery for something to wear as a badge of honor, I felt lung cancer got the left overs of marketing. First of all what’s with ‘clear’ or ‘pearl’ as a ribbon color, who picked that? I go to my first lung cancer 5K and I get recognized with a “survivor” shirt in mucus green, who thought of that? Eventually I had to order my survivor hat from Zazzle instead of any lung cancer organization.
Lung cancer is deadlier to women than breast cancer but gazillions gather to run or march for the less dangerous cancer. What is wrong?
What is John Cena doing promoting merchandize in mid-September for Susan G Komen?
Shouldn’t there be rules of fair play about fundraising? September is 'pediatric cancer month' can’t the pink fundraising bullies wait two weeks. Here I go sounding pre-geezer again but I remember a time that celebrities used to support pediatric cancer with ads for St. Judes.
It’s a damn shame cancer fundraising can’t be shared but that is not the American way.
I also hope it is not about numbers. I mean there are 24 lung cancer organizations. Lincoln observed that "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Hint, hint - maybe less lung cancer organizations would make for a stronger voice.
