Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer

I’ve gotten so used to watching local talk shows where two starlets battle it out with words or where the hosts speculate about a potential showbiz hookup and grill the involved people endlessly that I’ve forgotten that there may still be good news in Philippine showbiz:

Some GMA 7 artists are proudly wearing pink scarves that symbolize Avon’s Kiss Goodbye for Breast Cancer campaign this year.

For the second year, Avon has partnered with GMA 7 in its quest to raise awareness for the early detection of breast cancer.

The cause is close to the hearts of these personalities because many of them have loved ones who are victims or survivors of the disease.

Some of the celebrities involved in this cause are TV host German Moreno, news personalities Arnold Clavio and Rhea Santos, and young stars like LJ Reyes and Mike Tan.

    For an interesting twist on the topic of the “pinking” of breast cancer awareness, there are several articles I link to from my website, http://www.honestmedicine.typepad.com, that you might like to read. Here are just a few of them:

    To access the articles, go to the left side of my site, and look under “CANCER”:

    1) “Welcome to Cancerland: A Mammogram Leads to a Cult of Pink Kitsch,” by Barbara Ehrenreich. A classic.

    2) “Chemo Concession” (gives some surprising information about the chemotherapy industry)

    Both articles will give you another perspective on the “think pink” phenomenon. I hope you will find them informative. Thanks for giving them a look!

    Sincerely,
