Just got back from the grocery store and noticed more than usual the number of pink ribbons, etc... on packages...Energizer alone says they have given more than 400K last year to BC, it's on cereal, dairy products, and even dog food.
It made me think - we get (and we contribute to) all sorts of campaigns by way of phone calls and letters in the mail for other cancers, heart disease, and other diseases. Not once in my life do I remember getting anything to support PC. This isn't a put down on what BC is doing, I just find it amazing.
- Tell me that PC organizations have all the money they need for research and awareness?
- I wonder how much was donated to support PC compared to BC and other diseases?
- It makes me want to go out and start some type of campaign to raise money and awareness? Is it worth it...where should the money eventually go...
