Pink you can believe in

Call it Pinktober, call it Breast Cancer Action Month, or call it "Wake me when it's over," it is October 1st and I would be one crummy BC blogger if I didn't post something.

The funny thing is I find myself more filled with contentment than dread. Sure I have seen some icky stuff benefitting bogus charities, but then I saw this.

Bestill my heart, fresh lettuce benefitting my charity of choice, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation!!!

OK, someone out there might complain it's not organic, but we have come a long way from the pink pimp cup I saw at the store, or pink guns, or what ever the worst possible product you can think of is!

I am also in a really good mood, because the community where I worked as a news anchor until well, today, had a really successful Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk. The area was hit hard by a flood three weeks before last year's event, raising money here is tough, so I guess this October 1st, I am seeing the world through rose-colored glasses!


  1. As a survivor, I take the "wake me when it's over" approach. You can't eat anything, visit a store, etc. without the pink ribbon staring you in the face. It is a constant reminder and can be overwhelming. Don't make the mistake of thinking me unappreciative of the money, support and research which the various organizations bring but breast cancer is so much more than wearing a pink ribbon. If healthy women only knew the horrificness of this disease - they would run to get a mammogram! Wishing you good health.

  2. Tracy, I get it. The first year it drove me crazy. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the Dress in Pink Competition has already started! Wear Pink with your friends/family/colleagues and take a picture! Let's have a crazy and colourful month! Cheese! Read more about the competition here: and join our event here:

  4. This is a tell tale sign that this is getting out of control. But the bottom line is the cure is getting donations. I guess the ends justifies the means.

  5. In clinical practice, doctors personally assess patients in order to diagnose, treat, and prevent disease using clinical judgment. The doctor patient relationship typically begins an interaction with an examination of the patient's medical history and medical record, followed a medical interview and a physical examination. Thanks.
