  9. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and my town is going all out. The fire hydrants are painted pink. They have painted the lines in the street pink. All the stores are decorated pink. There are pink balloons everywhere. Tonight the stores in town had festivities and music and several donated a percentage of their sales. Coming up there will be a huge walk here with thousands of people expected to walk for Breast Cancer Awareness. It is a wonderful thing to see so many people work together on this cause. I know that cancer is a terrible disease. I lost my father when I was 18 and my mother a decade ago, as well as several friends. I know women who have breast cancer who are considered cured and others who have died. I have a neighbor who has just gone through very aggressive treatment and is the process of reconstruction and lost another neighbor a couple of years ago. I know what it is like to go through the suspicion of breast cancer, fortunately everything turned out fine with me. But we all know that scleroderma is a terrible disease also. I lost my mother-in-law to it, my best friend's mother, and some of my sclero forum friends. I know how it affected all of my organs, took a job I loved away from me, and isolated me from my friends. I know how all of you suffer, the things you have given up, the parts of your life lost. I know the procedures you have gone through, the body parts/organs lost. I rationally understand that it is a numbers issue, that many more are affected by breast cancer than scleroderma. But there is a part of me that emotionally doesn't understand it. I want to shout out 'but what about us?" When are you going to put even a small part of funding into more research and searching for a cure? Almost everyone has heard of Lupus or Multiple Sclerosis... I do not mean to minimize the seriousness of breast cancer or any other disease. I just wish there was a way to bring more awareness to scleroderma. I did write to my congressmen to have them create a rare disease bill and fund more money for research, and have written to make scleroderma a recognized disease for disability which it now is. Sigh (as Shelley would say)... miocean
