      I get so angry when I compare the pink ribbon bullshit  squad to my wife's suffering.  We know many women with this disease from her hospital and support groups.  We all despise SBK.

      Know that when you "race for the cure" every step you take is an insult to the dying.  My wife may have one year or ten, we don't know.  But without research that SBK does not fund it is unlikely to be any longer than that.

      "Awareness" is code for "bullshit."

      Read Barbara Ehrenreich's "Cancerland" for the straight story.
