While I feel sorry for any one dealing with Breast Cancer, I can't help but feel jealous the attention given to it
Sure, it is a terrible disease, and and a terrible thing to deal with.
How-ever - there are A LOT of disease that the is an end in site.
I was diagnosed with Neurofirbromatitis at age 4. ( I will wait while you Google it ). I have had 9 surgeries so far, and will need more.There is no cure. I lived with it for years, and will continue to live with it until the day I die. It will never go away.
Do I get a special month or even week? NO. Our numbers are too small. It seems (to me at least) that unless your medical problems involve a large number of people, it can be ignored. Fine. Lets face it, the more people that have a disease, the more attention it gets.
Does changing our linen bags to pink really change our awarenenss? Does giving our pink pens, locks, sticky pads, whatever,really change the awareness and outcome of Breast Cancer??
