Your Imprint Here

April 5th, 2010 by Elizabeth Kissling

Cover of Breast Cancer Awareness catalog, Spring 2010This catalog showed up in my office mailbox today. Do I need to say any more than Think Before You Pink?

In other breast cancer news, Rachel at Our Bodies, Our Blog has a good summary (with lots of links) of the recently announced federal court decision to invalidate the patent on breast cancer genes.

    My day job is in health education, so I’ve been receiving Positive Promotions’ catalogs for eons. And they were one of the early pink adopters. They’re insanely guilty of pinking everything, but leaning heavily towards products that primarily women use, like nail files. Which does nothing to support the men who are affected by breast cancer (either as partners/family members/friends, etc. or as patients themselves). And of course, not one dollar donated to Komen or other charitable organizations.

    Yuck. That’s just about all I can say. Yuck.
