  "Finally, someone has dared to put in print what I feel. The whole pink ribbon "culture", as Ms. Sulik calls it, makes me feel as if people think those of us who have/did have breast cancer are children who need help instead of grown women who can make their own decisions and have their own feelings. I do not feel breast cancer made me a better person, consider myself some sort of hero or want to surround myself with pastel. I have long been offended by "Save the Tatas". It implies that my treatment was a failure or disappointment because all we managed to save was my life.In addition to breaking the code of the pink ribbon culture, Ms. Sulik also makes very salient comments about the motives of those companies who both support this lifestyle and make products that either treat or potentially cause cancer. Are these types of companies really committed to ending breast cancer or do they just want to get their names out there? If breast cancer is eradicated, don't some of these companies stand to lose millions?Finally, I feel this is a must-read for those who participate in pink ribbon activities, those who do not and those who don't understand why their loved ones are so offended. I intend to recommend this to my mother immediately."
