People talk about breast cancer. They talk about hope. They talk about pain and suffering, treatments and medications.
They talk about the loss of hair, strength, and spirit. People talk about surgeries and scars. They talk about fear. But they don’t talk about money.
People don’t talk about the cost of breast cancer. About how your benefits will run out before your cancer is gone.
About how millions of dollars are raised in the name of breast cancer, yet those diagnosed struggle, not to survive, but to afford to survive.
People don’t talk about that. But we do.

Just say no to “Pinkwashing!" Pinkwashing is a common term that refers to companies that claim to care about breast cancer by promoting pink products but at the same time, produces, manufactures and/or sell products that contain toxic chemicals with a known link to breast cancer.
