You did it! Now 100 of us have signed up for the Thunderclap on Oct 1! Now we know our social media message will be sent out at 7am PDT/10am EDT/3pm BST. Thanks to everyone who signed up and shared our tweets, posts, and blog messages, urging your friends to join in to inject some reality into the same old tired pink narrative this Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
We still have much to do, of course. Keep urging others to sign up–the more tweets that go out at that moment on Saturday will only make our voices louder–and HEARD! Not only that, but continue to tweet out as many realities of your experience ALL DAY on Saturday. I know, I know. It is so much easier to just nod when someone says something irritating and clueless–because they have not had cancer and just don’t know. Well, rather than rolling our eyes and shrugging–let’s clue them in! Affect some change!
But right now, I’m taking a moment to breathe, to revel in my gratitude to all of you, for joining us on this crazy quest to try and start changing the narrative just a little. It’s true, I am a Curmudgeon–that will never change. But I am gleeful that so many of us share this load–and are willing to shout it out!
I can never thank you all enough!
