welcome to cancerland

Su shared this very witty but gripping essay with me about the pink ribboned breast cancer survivor culture that seems to be everywhere. I think no other group of cancer patients/survivors is more visible and chic (so argues the author) than the breast cancer community. Oh, you blood cancer people. Come on! We can be just as cool as them. Come on!

Anyway, here it is: Welcome to Cancerland: A Mammogram Leads to a Cult of Pink Kitsch. It's well-worth the read.
