This story was on our local news last night. Some local woman was hosting this theme party prior to her double mastectomy (prophylactic, she has BRCA 2 gene). The newspeople said that a lot of women are having "parties" like this. Really? Maybe so. I personaly know another woman who had a "shower" prior to her mastectomy for beast cancer.
I believe in being positive and having the support of your friends, but I find the concept of a celebration prior to a life altering event (not to mention life threatening) offensive. And I truly believe the public perception of having breast cancer has gotten out of hand. It is NOT a party. And I could go on and on.
