Why does Breast Cancer get all the attention? what about all the other cancers?

Thyroid cancer is the no.1 cancer out there! up by 400% in the last 10 yrs and everyone seems to be getting lung cancer but there is nothing ever said about these or any other cancer. All Cancer is is horrible and they should all have fundraisers and marathons.
What are your thoughts?

  • I think it's political. I was also floored that all the money raised does not go to breast cancer research. Planned Parenthood gets a portion of it, as well as other organizations.

  • Breast cancer is usually found too late and has a high death rate. It has a higher survival rate if found sooner.


    The rest don't function in the body or are they found or cable to be cured in the same type of way.

  • I know. My mother died of colon cancer when she was 37. Pancreatic cancer is a death sentence. Lung cancer is a big one. It's the #1 cancer killer.
