Meet Breast Cancer Action's new Exec Director

Breast Cancer Action, the organization that brought us "Think Before You Pink," has a new executive director. BCA is a great organization that talks more about preventing breast cancer than the others. Yes, they are seeking a cure, but they really want us to consider why breast cancer is on the rise or seems to be. Each time I hear of a friend of a friend discover she has breast cancer, that friend says, "Seems like it's getting worse." I feel more like it's zeroing in on us...Ya know what I mean? I'm tired of buying trinkets to save our lives. I want action. It's nice to have rabblerousers in the mix reminding us to push harder.

If you have had experience with BCA, please share!
