Support the fight against breast cancer, and help find the cure for this horrible disease! 267 People

    Know Too Many

    I guess maybe it has to do with my age, but I know far toomany women who have or have had breast cancer. Fortunately most of them are still with me as friends. Tremendous, strong women. I get a little chuckle sometimes, because none of us are exactly "pink" women. But...

    It Runs In My Family.

    According to the saying, "It skips a generation", I will be next to get it.  My grandmother died from it at the age of 35.  My great aunt on my dad's side had it.  Luckily they caught it early and cleared her of it.  My other grandma gets breast...

    What has this world truly came too? I Think we should be doing more for all sorts of cancers as well. I hate that if u cant pay to get wut u need from doctors, then they just let u suffer. This nation has not shown much that they care for their people. It is all about if they...

    Tata's Make Me Smile..but Seriously...

    My first wife survived pancreatic cancer for 3 years. I like to say that the beauty of what we went through spiritually outweighed the horror of what we went through as a couple. If you have breast cancer, first of all I want to say, "Bless your heart". You are...

    My Aunt had Breast cancer a few years ago and thankfully recovered from it.  We know how lucky she was and that's way I wear the pink bracelet and donate were I can to help others who are battling it right now!  Be Pink! Stay Strong!

    I've met and known a lot of people thus far in life. Though now when breast cancer is brought up my mind always returns to one specific woman, and the mangy half feral cat she rescued. My friend Michelle had a harsh home life, leading to her living in a foster home with this...

    Unite

    Both of my grandmas survived breast cancer. I'm fairly certain that I will get it one day as well so I just need to look out for it. But it affects so many people that it is vital that we all pull together to support finding and distributing a safe cure.

    Found a lump this morning.

    Didn't have to do an exam, pretty much an obvious lump right under my right areola and it is hard and painful. Ask pediatrician (was there for my son) and without showing her just describing what I found, we kinda both agreed it was a breast infection. Still going to dr on...

    I Don't Support Finding a Cure

    I support finding a cause. If you identify and fix the causes, you won't need a cure. Doesn't anyone wonder why cancer in all of its forms are so common? It's the most natural thing in the world these days for people to get cancer (pick a kind) and die. Most people...
