Winning the Pink Ribbon

Forgive the reuse of this image, but the issue here is much more important than a snapshot.

This is an awful club to get into, not at all discriminating, far too easy to join and the dues are sickening.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. And thanks to Mrs. Blandings for reminding me.

Cancer, of any kind, is communicable. You can’t get it from someone else, but it sure has a devastating impact on everyone around its victim. Do what you can to kill off at least one strain of this terrible disease. Talk about it, donate to the cause, rally around a friend or family member who is fighting like hell or just show your silent support by wearing a bit of pink today.

But above all else, be aware. Early detection is crucial to your survival. Believe me.
