    Yeah, i get it. I have a mother, a sister and a girlfriend. I want a cure for breast cancer as much as the next guy, or girl

    but to put almost all our attention on tits, instead of other cancers that have a higher mortality rate like say pancreatic or liver cancer is just beyond stupidity

    Breast cancer is the 2nd most common cancer after lung cancer. 40,000 deaths per year.

    and what percentage of those deaths could have been averted had they detected it earlier?

    thats why we have this focus
    to get the tests done to detect it as early as possible

    Are you kidding me?
    Live a woman's life and care for an ample set of milky white soft breasts and then talk to me!
    You don't get it because you don't have breasts to call your own.

    a few of you seem to be missing the point.

    #1 breast cancer is obsessed over, like its the only cancer

    #2 their are even more deadly cancers like pancreatic and liver

    #3 why the obsession over only women's cancers, when men are dying just as much from prostate cancer

    Anyone know anyone that has DIED from breast cancer? I do. Many. Anyone know any breast cancer survivors? I do. Many...and they live with the fact that it can return at any moment.

    Truly is nothing to make fun of..ie posting sexy breasts....as those sexy breasts can easily be eaten up with cancer..

    im not opposed to awareness, but can we have some awareness for other cancers too?

    All I ever see is awareness for breast cancer, but nothing for prostate cancer, or even rare diseases.

    dont those kill and maim too?

    Why don't you start a campaign to make Prostrate Cancer Awareness as Mainstream as Breast Cancer?

    I lost a dear friend Jennifer (she was 32 and left her husband and 3 year old son) last summer to breast cancer, and my best friend and daughter's Godmother has it now. I pray to God EVERY DAY that they got it all, and it doesn't return like it did in my friend Jennifer.



    Anything any of us can do to help find a cure for any kind of Cancer is a win-win, eh?
