Post Breast Cancer Patients Say Pink Ribbons Exploit Them 
http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/magazine/articles/2009/10/04/sick_of_pink/

Groups of breast cancer patients and survivors say that the annual Pink Ribbon campaign to raise funds for cancer research exploit their illness for corporate gain.

Welcome to the real world, ladies. Every event that is sponsored by a corporation and raises funds for a cause is intended to garner good will for the company whose logo is prominently displayed in the advertising and merchandising.

Stop the self centered whining. The Pink Ribbon campaign is probably the major reason that breast cancer is at or near the top of recipients of research funds. Lots of us see public campaigns that bring up uncomfortable feelings for us personally. Get over it, and focus on the good work done ON YOUR BEHALF and be grateful for it.

Post Breast Cancer Research Paying Off 
http://www.chicagotribune.com/entertainment/chi-tc-health-bc-detectoct04,0,3480714.story

80% of women now diagnosed with breast cancer will likely be cured and eventually die of some other cause, researchers say. Sounds like early detection and advances in treatment are beginning to pay off nicely.
