Campaigning shirts at a Breast cancer walk appropriate? Yes or no?

I'm looking for your opinions. Thank you for reading and replying. At the Susan G. Komen Breast cancer walk. We saw people campaigning and wearing shirts campaigning for who's running for office. Where Everyone there is wearing Breast cancer shirts, teams and in memory of.. But this person who's running for office. Was a breast surgeon. Was my Breast Surgeon. But did one of my surgeries earlier. While I was doing Chemo to shrink the tumor. My surgeon decides to close the practice. So wouldn't do my surgery or finish what was started. I had to amongst all of my Breast cancer find a new surgeon! I said I'd quit Chemo immediately and let my surgery be done. No. Even the employees only got a one day notice! So the campaigning at a breast cancer walk! What do you think? Right or wrong! When you're not a breast surgeon anymore. And was so talented! What are your thoughts? Thank you for answering this.

  • NO your not campaigning for who's in office you're campaigning for breast cancer. The focus needs to be on raising money for breast cancer not who's wants who in office next.

  • Inappropriate to campaign (which they were doing by wearing those shirts) during the serious theme of the walk.

  • That's pretty tacky, even for a politician.


    Answer by scout_mom at 9:00 PM on Aug. 23, 2010

  • The focus should have been on breast cancer, not people's political aspirations. It was wrong of them to do that.
