I have to agree with you. Now, I understand that breast cancer is a big issue. And I sympathize with those affected by it. However, it tends overshadow all other types of cancer, even those which claim more lives or are more difficult to treat, substantially.

I'm not trying to start an argument or belittle the effects of any cancer, because the truth is that any type of cancer is bad. But why does breast cancer stand above all the rest when it comes to awareness?

And now I see shirts all over the place that aren't even being sold by organizations trying to raise money. It's a sad world we live in when companies try to milk (no pun intended) deadly disease for profit. It's almost like breast cancer merchandise has become a fashion statement.
