“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.

Il y a un siècle, après une guerre meurtrière, la Terre a été colonisée par une civilisation extraterrestre à la technologie avancée : les Zhrees. Même si la paix a finalement été instaurée entre les deux peuples, les Zhrees dominent clairement la planète, l'utilisant comme avant poste militaire et source de matières premières. Sapience, un groupe de résistants, lutte activement pour le retrait des Zhrees et l'indépendance du genre humain. Donovan, 17 ans, est chargé quant à lui de faire régner l'ordre. À l'âge de cinq ans, il a été sélectionné pour être un EXO, un soldat d'élite des Zhrees. Grâce à la technologie extraterrestre, son corps a été renforcé par une exo-armure, le rendant quasi-invincible. Il est aussi le fils du Chef du gouvernement qui collabore avec les Zhrees. Tout ceci destine le jeune homme à un brillant avenir. Jusqu'au jour où une intervention tourne mal et que Donovan est enlevé par Sapience. Il retrouve alors sa mère - celle-ci avait disparu quand il était enfant -, qui est devenue un membre haut placé de la résistance. Peu à peu, Donovan découvre qu'une menace plus grande pèse sur la Terre et que le destin de l'humanité repose maintenant sur ses épaules. Tiraillé entre son devoir d'Exo et son amour pour Anya, une jeune résistante, la tâche s'annonce ardue pour le jeune homme...

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.

Enquête sur le dépistage du cancer du sein - Essais - documents

Page: 551
View: 5908
Chaque année, le mois d'octobre se pare de rose et de placards innombrables appelant à partir en croisade contre le cancer du sein grâce à la mammographie. Pourquoi une telle volonté des responsables de santé publique, des médecins, des associations ou des laboratoires ? Les femmes sont-elles réellement bien informées des risques qu'elles encourent en se soumettant à un tel dépistage ? Et les bénéfices qu'on leur fait miroiter existent-ils vraiment ? Révoltée par l'obstination des gynécologues à lui imposer la mammographie, Rachel Campergue a mené sa propre enquête. Ce qu'elle découvre est effarant. Infantilisant les femmes, les pouvoirs publics promeuvent la confusion entre prévention et dépistage. Les médecins ne disposent pas des connaissances adéquates garantissant que les consentements qu'ils arrachent à leurs patientes sont effectivement «éclairés». Quant aux associations, elles sont les agents d'un business juteux qui profite avant tout aux fabricants de biens de santé. La conclusion de ce travail foisonnant, précis et non dénué d'humour, est sans appel : un cancer détecté par mammographie n'équivaut pas à une vie sauvée, et, si vous choisissez d'en passer une tous les deux ans, faites-le en toute connaissance de cause. Rachel Campergue a exercé durant 14 ans comme kinésithérapeute avant de consacrer 10 ans de sa vie à filmer les requins sur l'atoll de Rangiroa. Médecin fondateur du Registre vaudois des tumeurs à Lausanne et membre du Formindep, le Dr Bernard Junod a été, jusqu'en 2009, enseignant-chercheur à l'École des hautes études en santé publique à Rennes.

Ribbon Culture explores the history, meaning, and sociological implications of the popular practice of 'showing awareness'. The book suggests that we see the rise of awareness campaigns in terms of a growing interest in personal displays of compassion in a cultural climate where empathy has become a by-word for authenticity. Not only this, but Ribbon Culture highlights charities' use of slick awareness campaigns to 'reach' their target-audience and explores the repercussions of the transformation of charity into a commercial enterprise.
