In what I consider to be one of the absolutely best ways I have ever seen to help everyone who has received a breast cancer diagnosis, Allstate has partnered with author Hollye Jacobs to give a free copy of her book, "The Silver Lining - A Companion Guide" to all in the United States through October, 2015.
In 2013, Noel Franus founded P.ink, which stands for "personal ink," an organization that helps breast cancer survivors who have undergone mastectomies and breast reconstruction by connecting them with a tattoo artist. The artist works with the survivor to create tattoo designs to cover and hide scar tissue from such operations.
The metaphors of cancer and terrorism are easily interchangeable. Breast cancer is a terrorist organization of cells, threatening mass casualties in the rest of my body. ISIS is a cancerous growth, metastasizing at an alarming rate. But waging war on cancer and ISIS do little to address root causes or prevent the conditions that cause these terrors in the first place.
