Because i am with you on your journey, in supporting your hopes and understanding your fears. My feelings about pink are just that: feelings. Opinions.  many writers take on pink - look at the writers of the breast cancer consortium and the work of my  #bcsm  co-moderator alicia staley.   join us on one of our monday chats for the input of deanna j. Attai, md, facs and the other medical oncologists, radiologiss and surgeons who routinely join our chat.   pretty in pink?  not always.  some 30 percent of all breast cancers will metastasize. On october 13, metastatic awareness day, we will recognize women affected with stage iv cancer.

Sometimes it reminds me of how christmas has been commercialized - it starts early, is in your face, and makes myth of the experience itself. buy viagra pills online  it can trivialize a serious disease, divert discussion and dollars. Buy viagra toronto I happen to think if we continue to act fearlessly - as friends, as survivors, advocates and activists -  in bringing our intellectural collective to bear on the issue we can change the landscape for your daughters.   last week i was stunned to hear someone on our weekly #bcsm chat express the thought that we - co moderators alicia staley and deanna attai, md and i -- had a political agenda.  if having an anti-cancer, evidence-based, pro-survivorship, community-based agenda is political then yes, i'll be the first to print campaign buttons and banners.  on my dollar.  not from pimping cancer. Here's looking at you, kids. worldpharm4u buy viagra usa #   #   # this past week we were shocked and saddened to hear of the recurrence of lisa adam's cancer.  if you are not familiar with her or her story please read: "what to do when you are diagnosed with stage iv cancer.
