I just cooked and ate dinner with my family. I had to come back and post this as I am so angry inside. Robert had a thoughtful positive post and most of what I saw on there was negativity. Why are you all so mad at the color pink? It's just a color. While I agree that some people take advantage of it, that happens in all aspects of life. To me if a candy shop wants to wrap it's bags in pink for October and it reminds just one person to get their mammogram I'm happy. If you don't like pink for a color that is fine but why be negative to Robert's positive message? I quite frankly think some people take themselves a little to seriously where their cancer is concerned. I'm not trying to offend anyone but if you have to be able to laugh at some of this stuff, like the NFL and all it's pink. I love it. It makes me smile, probably because I love football. Just so you know I am stage 4 with mets. I've had six surgeries and multiple infections. I still make jokes about my cancer it's my coping mechanism. Laugh once a day it will make you smile.
