“Samantha King explains how, beyond being an all-too-frequent and still-too-lethal disease for many women, breast cancer is a corporate dream come true.” —Herizons “Fascinating. King’s deft and thoughtful interpretation of the pink ribbon phenomenon is an important wake-up call. Going against the grain, she takes a clear-eyed look at a trend that often seems to outshine the disease that put it on the map.” —Women’s Review of Books “King’s criticisms of breast-cancer philanthropy provide a new means of looking at one of our culture’s most celebrated causes. For anyone who has ever squirreled away yogurt lids for the cause, Pink Ribbons, Inc. is food for thought.” —Bitch “A fascinating read for anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer.” —Curve “Breast cancer advocacy is being transformed from meaningful civic participation into purchasing products. To understand the personal, social, and political costs, read this book.” —Barbara Brenner, Executive Director of Breast Cancer Action In Pink Ribbons, Inc., Samantha King traces how breast cancer has been transformed from a stigmatized disease and individual tragedy to a market-driven industry of survivorship. Here, for the first time, King questions the effectiveness and legitimacy of privately funded efforts to stop the epidemic among American women. Highly revelatory-at times shocking-Pink Ribbons, Inc. challenges the commercialization of the breast cancer movement. Samantha King is associate professor of physical and health education and women’s studies at Queen’s University, in Kingston, Ontario

Pink Ribbons for April - In Memory of April Jones

It was a tragedy which shook the world. On 1 October 2012, the disappearance of five-year-old April Jones from the mid Wales town of Machynlleth sparked an almost unprecedented wave of concern. Within Wales the event drew people of all ages and backgrounds in their hundreds to help in the search. Further afield social media websites spread the story worldwide and in turn brought messages of hope and support to those directly involved. It demonstrated a community response on an international scale. Today Mark Bridger is serving a life sentence for the horrific murder of April Jones but this book is not about the details of that extreme act of cruelty, it is about the various acts of kindness from within the town and from far outside it. This is book tells the unfolding narrative of April's story over the twelve months since she was taken from her home and her home town, in the words of the people who live there and with the support of April's family. But more than the telling of the tragic events, it tells the story of how people pull together in extreme circumstances; how in today's technological world, community is not about geography alone. It's about strangers coming together. It is a story about hope and humanity. Proceeds from the book will go to the April Jones Fund. The fund set up to aid the search for the missing five-year-old will be divided between local charities, schools, and search and rescue organisations.

This is a book of collected poetry, art work, and a short story that started about twelve years ago. The poetry started with a simple muse. A thought that required no thought what-so-ever. The inspiration and the desire started with a girl sitting in the same classroom, later writing became a pleasant way to pass the time. The art work started with a severe case of writers block, which lead to drawing lines on paper. It isnt really supposed to look like anything, just whatever is seen in the eye of the beholder. The short story came about from the passing of someone that was dear to the heart. A grandma, who prayed every day for a grandson she barely even knew. The Pink Ribbon is a short story about a little girl with a pink ribbon tied in her hair, fear, and death. There are two wishes that are made with this book. Helping those with cancer is the first. Weather it is the treatment, care, or cure. A percentage of the authors proceeds will go to helping those that suffer from cancer. The second wish is helping the author find The Muse; the girl, who is now a woman, which first inspired and encouraged him to write over a decade ago.

What would you do if you knew your time was short? Pink Lips and Fingertips answers this question through the life of Jeri Ivison Paholek, who was born with a rare heart defect called common ventricle and given a death sentence by the medical community. Instead of retreating inward and playing it safe to extend her years or embarking on extravagant global adventures, Jeri chose to impact the world for Christ-whether by corresponding with convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh on death row or starting a prayer stand immediately after the 9/11 attacks. Her indomitable spirit in the face of death will inspire and captivate. You will not approach life the same way after reading this book. "Rick Weber has always searched for greater understanding of his subjects and the obstacles they face. Finding solace and inspiration in their tales goes beyond merely the details of his career, but permeates who Rick is on a personal level. It's again obvious in his best work to date, Pink Lips and Fingertips. Jeri's story isn't just for those of faith, but for those who simply need to understand the will to survive and thrive in the face of life-threatening challenge." -Jason Cole, Yahoo! "This is an inspiring story that recognizes all heroes don't march in parades or speak before crowds. Jeri is petite and literally suffers from a broken heart. But she refuses to disconnect from God, who authors a supernatural miracle activated by love, courage and faith." -Armando Salguero, Miami Herald RICK WEBER graduated from Penn State with a B.A. in journalism. He has won the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism, been honored twice by the Associated Press Sports Editors and contributed to Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Golf Book. He lives in Katy, Texas, with his son, Austin.

The Ripper's Wife

Publisher: Kensington Publishing Corp.
ISBN: 0758288905
Category: Fiction
Page: 369
View: 6925
A spellbinding novel of the Whitechapel murders and history’s most notorious serial killer from the author of The Secrets of Lizzie Borden. I was the first or, perhaps, the final, victim. Maybe I was neither. Maybe I was both . . . Maybe I destroyed myself . . . My name is Florence Elizabeth Chandler Maybrick . . . I was Jack the Ripper’s wife . . . It begins as a fairytale romance—a shipboard meeting in 1880 between vivacious eighteen-year-old Southern belle Florence Chandler and handsome English cotton broker James Maybrick. Courtship and a lavish wedding soon follow, and the couple settles into an affluent Liverpool suburb. From the first, their marriage is doomed by lies. Florie, hardly the heiress her scheming mother portrayed, is treated as an outsider by fashionable English society. James’s secrets are infinitely darker: he has a mistress, an addiction to arsenic and strychnine, and a vicious temper. But Florie has no inkling of her husband’s depravity until she discovers his diary—and in it, a litany of his bloody deeds . . . Drawn from the found journals of the alleged Jack the Ripper, and the twisted marriage of the real-life Maybricks, Brandy Purdy delivers a tantalizing and “compulsively readable” spin on the shocking Ripper crimes, and the desperation of a woman who, herself, was driven to murder (Historical Novel Society).
