    I used to just tune out their repellent ad for the three day but now I have to turn it off. The minute I hear that woman with the melodious voice full of barely contained excitement saying, "I never thought I could walk 60 miles in three days!!!!!!," my radio is OFF. I always knew something about it bothered me, the fact that it was so triumphant and joyous and FUN — and we are talking about a potentially life-threatening medical condition, which is NOT fun. Not saying one should not have a positive attitude and be glad if one gets better, but this always seemed to me all about sucking out women patients' identities and replacing them with "CANCER SURVIVOR!"

    My sister had breast cancer five years ago and I think she'd be embarrassed to be identified as a disease she formerly had as opposed to all the things she does and loves.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
