I AM MAD. Should I sugarcoat it? Nope. Not happening. Not anymore.
If you own a TV, computer or phone, you’ve seen that Nike has made Colin Kaepernick the face of Nike ads and that some people are losing their minds. While I don’t plan to express my views on the situation, I can’t help but ask WHY. Why during childhood cancer awareness month have I seen more people lose their minds over a Nike ad than the FACT that 45 kids lose their lives to cancer or cancer treatment EVERY SINGLE DAY?! Why are you COMPLACENT with childhood cancer receiving 3.8% of research funding, but PUBLICLY protesting a brand over an ad? Why are we settling for an ad boycott to get hundreds of thousands of likes and shares, but a family who lost their child to cancer is begging for funding and you turn a blind eye?
September is my favorite month. I, along with thousands of other families are TRYING to get you to see the REALITY of childhood cancer. While we do this every single month, we really push it this month. Why are you more concerned with an ad on a commercial, than the beautiful child at the hospital fighting for their life because they have no research funding to provide better cures? If you’re really set on boycotting and protesting Nike, let’s take it the next step… that $75 you typically spend on a pair of Nike’s? Donate to childhood cancer research. That will actually DO SOMETHING.
