We support the efforts to bring awareness to breast cancer during the month of October, but we are frustrated by Pinking and Pinkwashing. Please, join us as we seek to improve knowledge re: breast cancer.

Vision Statement:To bring full awareness of the reality of breast cancer to the general public; the surgeries, the treatments and the horror that there is NO cure. To ensure that proceeds donated to the cause are publically noted and distributed in an appropriate manner for the community in which the funds were raised. To keep corporations accountable for the use of pink products and the medical field driven to move the cure closer to the finish line.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

Wearing pink never CURED anyone


We're aware, now let's find a CURE

Until the time when someone comes up with a definitive "cure", we each have to cobble together what we believe will be the most effective treatment that we can live with, not merely survive.

Barbe gets my vote. PatMom is a close second. No one gives a rat's a** what color bra you announce you wear on Facebook. Cancer sucks comes to mind, but that's a given. Also, I don't want to hear your story about someone you know that died from BC when they least expected it, but thanks anyway!
