If anyone else is upset over the latest Breast Cancer awareness game which insinuates that the player is pregnant, I suggest you read this blog post which a friend of mine shared.

Thanks for sharing this. I received a message from a friend to participate in this game. I explained why this game is insensitive and suggested posting a link to information about breast cancer instead. Of course no one posted a link but I don't think they participated in the game after reading my reaction to it. I think they are using breast cancer awareness as an excuse for an obnoxious prank.

That's just awful! The part of her blog that really struck me was her mention of how many breast cancer survivors are infertile after treatment. I hope that people find better ways to promote breast cancer awareness, because this isn't a good one at all.

I am not a fan of this game too!! I almost got a heart attack when two of my friends posted that they were 13wk and 12 wks respectively and craving whatever! I think it is such a dumb game and what is the sense of bresat cancer awareness if we are only making women aware? I think it is important to make everyone aware not just women. I admit that I have in the past participated in theses games and I am sure that the ppl who started it weren't aware that it would cause us pain but as you said we should help others understand that it does affect us.


Me - (Amanda 27) My dh-- 26 We have been ttc # 1 for 3yrs 5mths My dh has severe oligospermia, Ivf with icsi is our only option. Ivf # 1--- failed Ivf # 2--- failed Ivf # 3-- hopefully in March 2013 at a new clinic!
