  1. Check these out... The ribbon would be white because from a branding perspective, objects are almost always available in white (and rarely in pearl).
  2. Hmmm, I just had an idea. Will post a mock-up later!
  3. Thanks for your feedback, everyone! Yes, I realize there are two sides of the coin, which is why I thought this would be a good place to gauge a response. I'm really not interested in doing something that wouldn't be widely supported. Just curious, what is the significance of purple?
  4. UPDATE: Scroll down for revised graphics! Hello my new friends! I think we all know that breast cancer has better marketing and 'brand awareness' than any other disease (including other cancers and even HIV). The keystone of the branding? PINK. You can't find one product category or professional sport that does not contribute to breast cancer research through their sales or display of pink merchandise. In Philadelphia, they even make the famous Love Fountain run pink on significant breast cancer awareness days. All of this is to say... No one knows about the white ribbon. Or is it pearl? And it was clear in the past... We don't have clear branding. I think we are also concerned that the public at large has NO IDEA how deadly lung cancer is. So... Without further delay, here is my idea for a new ribbon and new lung cancer awareness merchandise. I know it's very, er, forward, but it WILL get the conversation started! I know it's not for everyone, but I would love your feedback anyway!
  5. Sweet dreams, Judy! Ginny, I'm working with an oncoogist in a private practice here in Delaware county. I also consulted with a top surgeon at Penn when I was first diagnosed. He's awesome, but I'm non-operable. Anyway, I get a lot of (friendly?) hassle from friends and family because I'm not seeing a doctor inside one of the major facilities. But my treatment to date has been full of black and white choices, and I have felt confident in my doctor, to date. If I need chemo or another treatment change, I plan to get a second opinion at that time. And I'll probably ask the surgeon at Penn to recommend an onco for that. Gee, can you tell I've recited that explanation a few times? hee hee Everyone: Thank you for your kind words regarding my blog. It makes me feel good that I can do a little to enrich a moment of someone else's life while I share my story.
  6. Gina, the tone with which you write conveys the love you have for Chris. The best thing you can have going for you, as a cancer patient, is someone to love and support you. Don't forget to take care of yourself, too. Too often our caregivers think only of their sick loved one and don't watch after their own health. Best wishes Jessica
  7. Thank you all for the warm welcome! I'll take your recommendations and start my browsing in some of the fun threads. Warmest regards, Jessica
  8. Hello, I was diagnosed in November 2011 with stage IV BAC. I've learned a lot from the Inspire forums, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed with the volume of activity and that I can't find the right place to post if I just need someone to talk to. So, when I read the LUNGevity tweet about 24/7 support, I thought I'd stop by and check it out. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you and contributing to the forums! I've documented my journey with cancer on my blog: http://stageiv.wordpress.com. If you choose to check it out, I would be honored.
