This angers me, too. A friend’s partner died of liver cancer yesterday, and a RL family member is… probably not going to be around for the Relay For Life survivor’s lap in July.
This is unjust; it stratifies cancer charities into “worthy” and “unworthy” if small charities can’t use the phrase or even the word “cure” for their events.
I am still collecting links and trying to verify any relationship between Relay For Life, a charity of the American Cancer Society, and the Susan G Komen Foundation.
I will no longer be buying products using the Susan G Konen foundation logo, ribbon, or color.
I hate pink, anyway. Nasty color. But now I will associate it with injustice and intolerance, not to mention arrogance.
“I used to give money to Komen all the time, but now I’m just kind of wary of them,” she said. “I’m not buying Yoplait yogurt or anything that has the word ‘Komen’ on it. They seem to have forgotten what charity is about.”
