Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we’ve been and what we’ve overcome. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That’s what we like to think. But that’s not always the way it is. Sometimes there are things we just have to learn over again

Pink Ribbons STILL Suck Ass

I belong to a cancer site that I frequently post on and get replys or just someone placing a comment on my story. Here is one I got today that annoyed me . ( FYI, my name is NOT carol)


Carol, You are strong and one thing for sure you have rolled with the punches so far! As a survivor, I have been going threw the same things and even though I am now cancer free... I have not left this disease behind me. I choose to support and be there for my fellow fighters. really does suck that your job was the way they were towards you. I know, I had a great support team at my job, and worked threw some of my chemo. Its hard but when it is all said and done you have to do what you have to do. Cancer is something that you can beat and we all have to stick together during the good and the bad times. Help one another during the struggle. So please, dont hate Pink Ribbons... we have something beautiful that represents us... we dont have to like the disease but like the PINK support. Thanks for the add! God Bless!- AngelRibbons


Here is my reply to AngelRibbons:

Thanks for your reply. Honestly I have no problem with the color pink, I used to actually like it and I love to support fellow CA fighters, however I am against PINKWASHING and unfortunately that seems to be the way of the corporate world today.Thanks to Susan G Komen breast cancer will forever be dehumanized by the infamous "pink ribbon". So as much as I stand up for a cause, unless you are helping people that I can actually see, don’t ask me to contribute to  yet another nameless corporation that has jumped on the “Pink” bandwagon. If SK inc. had been working as hard as they have said over these last years with all of the donations, walks, products, etc CANCER WOULD BE CURED. And they would not be going after the little guys who use the pink ribbons,(using contribution money) they would rejoice in the support!  So for me pink ribbons represent a CEO making hundreds of thousands a year off the backs of breast cancer survivor fighters, and families, while I struggle to pay my mortgage, buy food and LIVE thru this nightmare. I hate the disease and I still think Pink Ribbons SUCK ASS!

Thanks for the blessings, back at ya.
