Pink Ribbon Blues How Breast Cancer Culture Undermines Women S Health

Gayle A. Sulik Oxford University Press, USA

Medical sociologist Gayle A. Sulik reveals the hidden costs of the pink ribbon as an industry, one in which breast cancer functions as a brand name with a pink ribbon logo. Based on historical and ethnographic research, analysis of awareness campaigns and advertisements, and hundreds of interviews, Pink Ribbon Blues shows that while millions walk, run, and purchase products for a cure, cancer rates continue to rise, industry thrives, and breast cancer is stigmatized anew for those who reject the pink ribbon model. Even as Sulik points out the flaws of "pink ribbon culture," she outlines the positives and offers alternatives. The paperback includes a new Introduction investigating Susan G. Komen for the Cure and a color insert with images of, and reactions to, the pinking of breast cancer.

A Thin Pink Ribbon

Teri Carlson Covenant Books, Inc.

This book was born from my breast cancer journey and the inspiration I drew from my mothers. I felt from the beginning of diagnosis that my cancer was meant for a much larger purpose than my own. I felt God leading me through journaling to this end. I had so very many questions, wondering if what I was feeling was normal. I had to think many other women might have the same. This book contains my thoughts, journaling, reflections, and prayers throughout my journey. These are meant for reflection and how they might fit into your story or complement it. The title, A Thin Pink Ribbon, is a line from a poem I wrote about the connection between my mother and I through breast cancer. I hope this helps you in some small way as you travel your own path unique to you.

Pink Ribbon Stories

Tammy A. Miller

This book is a wonderful collection of stories from 123 women and men whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. There are all kinds of stories in this book. I am certain that something here will resonate with every reader. For some of the stories I should probably issue a "tissue warning," and for others a "laughter warning," just Depends - yes, the pun IS intended!! There are stories that will warm your heart; make you laugh; cause you to pause for reflection; and others that simply tell a story of a courageous journey through life.
