October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but if you don't already know this, you live under a rock.  Everyone has jumped on the pink bandwagon.  I thought it was because I had ovarian cancer that it was so annoying, but it seems that I am not the only one.  Last week I volunteered with my friend Melinda at a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Action and learned that one of their campaigns is "Think Before You Pink".  It asks consumers to not blindly assume that companies with pink products are altruistic, but to question these promotions.  I was so relieved to learn I wasn't alone, and I was really happy to support such a group.
The evening was hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence
