If you didn't see my post yesterday, please look over it and come back.
As you read there, I support breast cancer awareness. I really and truly do.
There are other cancers. Ugly cancers. Cancers that people cringe when you talk about them.
Remember Farrah Fawcett??
Noone wants to talk about that. Or buy/wear little brown ribbons in support of Anal Cancer awareness.
There is no "Lung Cancer Awareness Month" (or if there is, then it's so poorly advertised that I haven't the foggiest when it is).
But here we are smack dab in the middle of Think Pink month.
Lung cancer kills more every year than breast cancer and is harder to treat. And prostate cancer isn't far behind. But there is no special awareness month for them.
Because boobs are pretty. Everyone likes boobs.
Either you're a man and they make you feel warm and fuzzy, or you're a big breasted woman and proud, or you have itty bitty titties and you have boob-envy.
Everyone likes boobs.
So of course everyone wants to "Save the TaTa's".
But shouldn't there be more of a campaign for the ugly cancers??
What about skin cancer?? Or Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma??
What about Leukemia??
We should be having just a "Cancer Awareness Month" and giving information on all cancers. Because they all kill. Even the ugly ones.
