Pink

Lavenderavy

Rather than focus on one specific “cancer” for a month – or for “walks” – etc… Why not focus on all types of cancers as a whole? There are more cancers than Breast Cancer. And don’t say that I’m insensitive; my grandma had breast cancer.

If you donate money, why not donate to the American Cancer Society (or the like) and ask that your donation be spread across multiple cancer research programs?

If you “walk” for one, why not walk for them ALL? Change out of the PINK (or other specific cancer color) and wear LAVENDER: the color that encompasses ALL Cancer Awareness.

Make a stand against all cancers, not just one.

“Think Different”

Steve

R.I.P. Steve, you will be greatly missed.

                         Here’s
                        to the
      crazy ones,      the       misfits,
   the rebels, the troublemakers. The round
 pegs in the square holes.  The ones who see 
things differently. They’re not fond of rules, 
and they have no respect for the status
quo. You can quote them. Disagree with 
them.  Glorify or vilify them.  About 
 the only thing you can’t do is ignore
  them. Because they change things. They 
   push the human race forward. And while some 
    may see them as the crazy ones, we see g-
     enius. Because the people who are crazy
      enough to think they can change the
       world are the        ones who do.
