I missed this in October! Is this good or bad? Does it cheapen the White House or indicate that we are united from the top down in fighting this disease?

Six more days of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The first time I had cancer, there were no pink ribbons,

Danskin triathlons, no tamoxifen or test for the breast cancer gene mutations, no Race for the Cure, no Susan Love books; the Susan G. Komen Foundation had been established, but I didn’t know about it.¬† No internet either.

No Save Second Base or the site I found last week-Save the TaTa’s!

How did I do my research back then? (more…)

Bonus quote of the week!

I miss Molly Ivins’ humor and speaking truth to power. Here is how she began an essay in Time magazine¬† (2-18-02 issue) about cancer:

Having breast cancer is massive amounts of no fun. First they mutilate you; then they poison you; then they burn you. I have been on blind dates better than that.

Been there, done that, got the (pink) T-shirt.

Would Molly Ivins be involved in the health care reform debate right now? Yes, and I would love to know what she would have said.

Today I am speaking in public about some humorous things I have learned from being a cancer survivor. More on that later. And it is October 1st. It’s the first day of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Or the pink month……
