Peggy Orenstein’s Op-Ed on booby bracelets drew sharp comments from people with breast cancer, defenders of free speech, professional comment baiters and, of course, the people who make their living by peddling plastic gewgaws to the gullible public.
We’ve commented on this before.
But we here at the I Hate Metastatic Breast Cancer Foundation have a saying: If You Can’t Beat ’em, Join ’em.
I am so pleased to embrace this noble cause for all of us on this brave and selfless journey of ours. Yes, the I Hate Metastatic Breast Cancer Foundation has now latched on to a surefire vehicle to beef up the anemic state of metastatic breast cancer research*: BRACELETS! But not just any bracelets, MBC Bracelets.
Our MBC bracelets are not a gaudy yellow or girly pink but a tasteful and understated black. Each one comes with a photo and the personal story of a U.S. person who died from breast cancer last year. Choose from more than 45,000 stories! More added every day!
Although cancer is regarded as a disease of the aged, you’ll find we have a wide range of wacky pink stories to share with you! College students! Moms! Nieces! Daughters! Grandmas! And even some men!
Choose from the following fun sayings on our black bracelets:
>Let Me Tell You About My Side Effects
>Neuropathy: It’s Not All It’s Cracked Up to Be
>Join the Fight Against Chronic Constipation
>Thank Goodness I Have Chemo Brain, Because You Look Pretty Forgettable
>Screw Research, I’d Rather Buy Pink Crap from a Shallow & Useless Group
>What Part of Incurable Disease Don’t You Understand?
Collect ’em All! Support Breast Cancer Research! Wear Black & Save the Rack!
*Research, like charity, begins at home, which is coincidentally where I, as the Nancy Brinker of the IHMBC Foundation will be looking for the cure. Could it have slipped between the couch cushions with the remote control? Please support this vital and important work! Buy more bracelets!
