Let me start out with being amazingly clear on this. I, in no way shape or form, remotely support cancer as a disease. It’s an awful, devastating thing to happen. My father died of cancer when I was seventeen after having it for five years and his mother had breast cancer twice, so in absolutely no way am I trivializing it. However, it’s now Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I feel we need address the fact that breast cancer has been reduced to a fad in our society. I want to address this even though I know my opinion will be considered unpopular.
