1. Anonymous said: Breast cancer awareness. I think I want ads that say "hey, women aren't the only people who can get breast cancer." things like making sure hospitals and their employees are super sensitive to gender, like, if a transman is in because of breast cancer, make sure he's still called him. things like that.

Dear Friends,
This is Sarah. Sarah has been a major contributor to SHYB over the past year (and more!) She is the author of this incredible poem. She has spread positivity throughout the tumblrsphere and beyond, and she’s just a fantastic person.
Recently she was diagnosed with cancer and had some pretty serious surgery. As she is recovering, her bills are piling up. With chemo ahead of her, she’s unable to go back to work. You can read more about her situation here.
She’s set up a donation page, and it would mean so much to me if anyone here could give back to someone who’s given this site so much. Even just five dollars can add up. And if nothing else, a reblog of this post would be awesome. I’ve seen Tumblr come together as a community and do some unbelievable things—let’s make this another success story!
Here is the donation page: http://www.gofundme.com/ozgh4
Let’s all send Sarah good thoughts and hope for a speedy recovery. She is brave and strong and wonderful, and she’s been through a lot this year.
Thank you so much, guys!
Love,
Amber

Hey guys! Sarah still needs any help that anyone can give her. She’s started making some beautiful jewelry that you can purchase at http://sarahcatecreations.tumblr.com/, but any of the above links are still totally okay too!
Please donate, reblog, take a look at her jewelry (it’s so gorgeous!), spread the word!

    Hi. I decided now was as good a time as any to discuss this.

    This is my mom. 

    She was recently diagnosed with a very rare cancer— salivary gland cancer. While it is not  terminal, and likely to be resolved after treatment, it is very expensive to treat. 

    The cancer started out with a tumor that she had removed last month, but not all of it could be removed due to its location.

    My mom has already undergone surgery to remove her teeth and prepare her for her radiation treatment. This surgery alone was very costly as will be the dentures she receives after she’s treated for the cancer.

    The type of treatment she will get is called Neuron Therapy Treatment— only three places in the United States offer this treatment. This means we will be required to move up to Seattle, WA while she is being treated. As far as a place to stay, my uncle has paid our one month’s rent at a two-bedroom apartment. However, there are still expenses that need to be covered.

    What I’m asking for is a donation. If you can, please visit this website  to read more about my mom’s story and make a donation if possible. I’m not asking you to give anything you can’t afford, but everything helps. In one week we have raised five thousand, our goal is 20k. 

    Please, if you can’t donate, reblog this and signal boost. Our family and friends have done so much already, but help and support from anyone is greatly appreciated. 

    Like my moms says “this is no trubs for a family like ours.”

    please help this chick out omfg aaaauughgsfhg sdgf if you don’t i will PUNCH YOU

    "I have folded 1,584 paper cranes since I turned 11.
I’m 15 now.
A girl who survived Chernobyl folded them with me.
I made my wish, she made hers.
Mine was to recover from depression, hers was to recover from cancer.
Both of these wishes came true.
There is hope.”

This picture really made me cry. If you know Heather’s father died of cancer when she was 14-years old and now she is standing there in that shirt to support ‘stand up to cancer’. I can’t imagine how many feelings she had when she was standing there. It just making me sad and so proud. I’m so proud of Heather, that she did this.
If you have any respect for Heather doing this please Reblog this. Reblog this to show your love to Heather, her father and all those others how are still fighting or died by this awful disease.
please, STAND UP TO CANCER.

  8. [Image: A white man with a large surgery scar on his chest, holding a letter. The letter reads as follows below.]

I am an American.I pay taxes.I worked.I was the guy who worked in his field for 20 years, until the economy collapsed.Then I was the guy who brought you your pizza. You know, a job? Not employment?
Then I got cancer.
Minimum wage and part-time insurance meant I needed Arizona’s welfare, AHCCCS (Access), or I needed to gather my affairs.Minimum wage meant I made too much money, according to Access, and I was denied Access.Cancer solved the problem and removed my ability to work.Access approved.
Despite what you’ve been told, the hospital will turn you away if you’re broke.Despite what you’ve been told, churches and private institutions will not pay your medical expenses.
I was diagnosed April 1st, 2011 and had major surgery on May 12th.I am still recovering from radiation and chemo treatments ended in August.I am alive because I’m unemployed.
Does any of this make sense?
I am the 99%
