Laughing at the Big C

(I will finish wineapalooza, I swear...but I had to share this).

Because I was criticized for not taking cancer seriously (um, seriously???), because I hate all the pink-bashing negativity, because people feel the need to remind me that my breast cancer might recur and kill me (gee, thanks, because, you know, I never think of that on my own) and because the thought of judging someone for how they handle cancer or how they deal with it after is ludicrously funny to me..

I love this article: Laughing at the Big C.

And my favorite quote is this:  
“I hope people take away the idea that there’s no right or wrong way to respond to the disease. We all screw up.”


Also, on a more serious note, I found this article on the advances in breast cancer treatment to be very informative, so I'm sharing it too:

Breast Cancer Treatments: No Longer One Size Fits All.

And this was the most reasonable discussion of the "Pinktober" Breast Cancer Awareness Month controversy that I've seen (and, yeah, there's controversy....surprises me too): The Huffington Post

I can't be all wine all the time. It is October after all.

(Oh, and if you feel like supporting a breast cancer cause in all means, feel free to click the link in the upper right hand corner and support my Team Legal Beagle in the Pink on Parade breast cancer walk supporting The Pink Ribbon Place breast cancer resource center. We don't do research. We help women get the mammograms and support they need. I think that's worthwhile.)


  1. The articles are great, really informative. I particularly like the first article

  2. That's a great quote, and I couldn't agree more! I've learned in the past year that there is no right, or wrong way to deal with grief or major life change, just as we are all different, we all handle it differently. But I think a little laughter and positivity goes a long way :-)


Comments mean you care. That's all I'm saying.
