Breast cancer unawareness month

October 7, 2011 – Perhaps no other disease gets the attention that breast cancer does during October, National Breast Cancer Awareness month. There are countless walks, runs, and relays for breast cancer, NFL players wear pink shoes, politicians appear in public without a pink ribbon at their own peril. Amid all the hoopla about beating this dreaded disease, there are all those breast cancer survivors who are not so lucky. Instead of marching triumphantly having beaten the disease, they survive with hour glass with the sand running out on their survival. These are women and yes men who live with metastatic breast cancer, and there is no cure for this advance stage disease. This report on MedPage Today brings that perspective to Breast Cancer Awareness month.
