Hello, all -
I'm a 3-year breast cancer survivor, and an active member of the CSN breast cancer board. I hope you don't mind my sticking my head in here with a question for any of you who might like to share your thoughts?
On October 28th, I'm leading a worship service at my church to honor all cancer survivors, and we’re very intentionally holding this service in October, when breast cancer gets all the attention, to do what we can to make the month a tiny bit more inclusive, and to talk about how this month feels to survivors of other forms of cancer.
I would love to hear any of your thoughts on this issue: Do you have any feelings about all the pink ribbons everywhere you look in October, or about all the attention that breast cancer receives, or the whole fuzzy issue of "awareness"?
As a breast cancer survivor, I realize that I have my own perspective and biases, and would love to be able to speak from a slightly wider perspective.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts you'd like to share,
