Cancer Culture Chronicles

BLOG by Anna Rachnel 40 years old, loving life, dealing with metastatic breast cancer, and blogging with an attitude. I am fascinated by the pervasive and popular culture that seems to surround the disease of breast cancer, and this is what motivates my writing. I find much of what I observe to be completely and utterly insane and I'm not afraid to say so. It's time to move beyond pink ribbons and messages of "breast cancer awareness", and start agitating for real and meaningful action in the fight to eradicate this disease for good.
