Yesterday was my mom's 11th anniversary as a breast cancer survivor. Because of her, I refuse to change anything about my products or labeling to exploit the consumers' tendency to "go pink" this time of year. Usually, I send her pink carnations (her favorite flowers), but since she was on vacation, I decided to give a different gift.
Before I go further, let me say that I hate - passionately - getting sticks. I'll tolerate shots and finger pricks, but anything involving a tourniquet and needing a vein, and I avoid it like the plague. I've been known to pass out as soon as the nurse or phlebotomist even starts thumping my vein. Yeah, I'm that much of a wimp about it. So, that being said, I decided to donate blood in a Red Cross Blood Drive.
