Please Vote for Dumb Things People Say


Click on photo to go to contest page.

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to ask a favor.  I was invited to enter one of my videos into a contest sponsored by a Canadian film fest dedicated to breast cancer topics.

“Dumb Things People Say to People With Metastatic Breast Cancer” is the running to be shown as one of the fest’s  Short Subjects. All of the videos can be found here:

Please go there and vote for my video. You only have to vote once–you do not have to go back and vote every day. Each person can vote up to three times per email address. There is no registration–you enter your email address and vote.

While it would be gratifying if my entry won, I am more excited about the educational potential–in only a few minutes people could learn so much about a often misunderstood or ignored demographic. Please vote!

Although I created the video–I have to credit Janis Fitzgerald. It was she who started the original discussion and then challenged me to make a video. Great idea, Fitz!

Again, please vote and encourage others to do so. Voting ends February 14, 2014.

    Doot–Just voted. Very impressive, I saw it awhile ago and like it just as much this time (noticed some updates). Good Luck! Ellen

    Just voted. Thanks for making the “dumb things people say” into a video. Hope a video will reach a wider audience. The original on “I Hate Breast Cancer” was one of my favorites and I also commented with some of the idiotic things that have been said to me. But why the Hawaiian (sp) music? A little distracting.
