Hadassah and Komen

Hadassah is racing for the cure in Jerusalem with Komen. The city was awash in pink lights on the walls of the old city and on the Shrine of the Book (which many say resembles a giant breast anyway).

This is all a little too pink for me. I will be very curious to read the press coverage. Will they even mention women living with metastatic disease? The 40,000 American women who will die of breast cancer in 2010? Or will the press focus on prevention and early detection, both important topics, but NOT A CURE.

Why are we still racing? When will someone find a cure?

  1. I'm so glad Pinktober is done for this year. A friend emailed me an article about "Breast Cancer Barbie". It is all way too much. I like pink because it looks good on me, not because I'm stage 4 B.C.
