I’m sick of it. All of this cancer awareness stuff is going to be the death of me, I swear. Now, don’t get me wrong. I think that there should be plenty of money donated to finding a cure for cancer, but all of this pink, blue, green, whatever ribbon stuff needs to stop. All I hear is “omg don8 fer breast canzers,” and it makes me want to kick a kitten. How good am I supposed to feel knowing that I may be donating to breast cancer research, when there are 100’s of other cancers out there that are just as deserving of that money as the breast cancer research is.
You sure as hell don’t see anyone asking for money to research a cure for Lung Cancer. Why is that? It’s clear to me that the average population thinks that whoever has lung cancer did it to themselves, or in some way can be blamed on smoking. Brain Check: My mother died of Lung Cancer, never smoked a day in her life, and never was around any more second hand smoke than the average human being. Are you going to tell me that just because a cigarette causes most of the lung cancer cases in the world, my mother shouldn’t be able to get the respect she deserves? Trust me, she didn’t get that respect more times than not.
