It is breast cancer awareness month. I decided to use my blog to provide some controversial research about this month’s tidal wave of pinkwashing propaganda. Many of you know that I am a two-time cancer survivor (last of which was breast cancer in 1999). However, you may not know that I am most definitely NOT a fan of Susan G Komen and here’s why:

The rewards are endless! I’m here to assist with you and your Family Health!
Lego is celebrating 6 decades with Stephanie Wolfe! It’s okay, I’ll share my 60th years with the most famous toy in our country. BUT, I’ll bet they didn’t plan to complete 60 Goals by 60 Years Old!
