Cushing's awareness bands for april 8
Posted 21 March 2007 - 06:07 AM
my parents and sister, on the other hand, have worn the yellow cancer bracelets and pink bracelets for breast cancer (my mom lost a friend to breast cancer and we lost my aunt through marriage to it also). they have many breast cancer items (ribbons, pins, stuffed animals). so it's not like they don't wear things like that. i just don't understand why cushing's doesn't seem serious enough to support through bands. it hurts me a great deal (amongst other things).
so i guess what made me think about this and what made me write about this is how april 8 is coming up. i asked my husband why he thinks they won't wear the bands and he says he doesn't know, but that they're just being jerks probably.
so anyway, do you guys wear the bands? do you have family or friends that do in support of you? if so, how did they acquire the bands? did you buy them and give them out? did they do it on their own? how did you inform them of them?
thanks. i hope i don't seem too sensitive, it's just what the whole thing symbolizes to me, i guess.

There's a link at the top of the page to them, where it says Awareness bands or http://www.cushings-...om/oscommerce2/
The current ones are light blue with yellow debossed print that says ♥ Cushing's Awareness ♥ on the front and It's About Time! on the back.
