Pinktober

October is breast cancer awareness month, and I'm proud to say I'm an 11 year survivor.  So as a survivor, you might be surprised to learn that I hate the pink ribbon.  I have grown to despise the pink ribbon, in fact.  The entire month of October has me doing whatever I can to stay out… Continue reading Pinktober
