    Too bad breast cancer has to be so prevalent huh? Too bad there isn’t a cure or known cause huh? Oh wait, there are cures for cancer and known causes. 😉 women can start by stop getting mammograms that increase the chance I’d cancer by 30% and that the very act of smashing any possible cancer will metastasize it. Maybe make MRIs the gold standard and not mammograms. Let’s hear all the people calling me crazy on this one now Haha.

    What is the awareness walk making people aware of? Is there any goal to making people aware of cancer or is there any offered solution to breast cancer? Just trying to grt people to shift gears forward about cancer. Let’s do a cancer walk exposing the fraud of the cancer industry.
