And I think we've lost the perspective that there are many more kinds of cancers that impact women's health and indeed kill them. We all need to have an increased awareness of the symptoms of all kinds of cancer. Early detection of ANY cancer is key to treatment and survival. In the sea of pink washing, I think we've lost sight of that.
So I'll be over here wearing a burgundy ribbon for multiple myeloma awareness, along with a black one for melanoma awareness. Or maybe yellow for all cancer awareness.
Don't fall into the trap of forgetting about the other cancers. They could take your life, just as breast cancer could.
For the haters out there who will disagree with my opinion--I have done my part and raised thousands of dollars for breast cancer research. I just think it's time to broaden our horizons.
