The painful side of positive healthcare marketing.

Lori was interviewed by the local NPR station – I particularly like this quote from the piece:

TODAY.com: Mom of newborn twin dies of breast cancer a week after diagnosis

1) Heartbreaking.
2) This sentence should not be necessary.

"She was health conscious, kind and generous, with a positive outlook."

People want to know what we did "wrong" that caused our cancer. The answer is NOTHING. People need to STOP blaming cancer on lifestyle choices. Healthy, positive people develop cancer, and die, every single day.
