Sorry to say it, but I'm going to start boycotting pink ribbons.
Everywhere you turn its pink this pink that. Over 700 million dollars donated last year to breast cancer and they still can't find a cure???? WOW they must have some pretty dumb scientists working for them...Not to mention They can't be bothered to share with any of the other cancers out there that have a higher mortality rate?
I'm disgusted. Now to top it all off there newest sponsor is Yoplait???? WTF People that’s like letting ciggy makers support a black ribbon on packs of ciggys. It’s become nothing more than propaganda anymore.
I feel for these women with breast cancer, or any type of cancer for that matter, but come on people breast cancer survives for an average of at least 5 years beyond diagnoses and here ovarian cancer can't even get an accurate diagnoses test. I'm sad to say that for the first time today I refused packaging that had a pink ribbon on it. Yes I went to my local grocery store and on their paper bags for this month they are supporting pink ribbons, and I asked for plastic instead. I will no longer support the pink ribbon until they stop hogging everything.
