Traveltext - this is awesome. Thanks for sharing. Men are so underrepresented when it comes to BC, probably because it's commonly associated as a woman's "illness" for lack of a better term

I second the blue pompoms in October lol.

taveltext: Thanks for the link. I so TOTALLY agree. Men are never mentioned except in ads that promise Stage IV HER2- an extra 8-10 months of life which isn't very uplifting either.

MODS: Fix my signature line. I AM NOT HER2- !!!! I keep going back to my Profile to fix but it says HER2+ there and has an extra ER-/PR- that I never entered. EVER
