Breast Cancer Thank-Yous
Kevin Salwen on Culture

We probably don't write enough about the specific good works companies do, but here's one worth talking about: Georgia-Pacific, through its Quilted Northern bathroom-tissue line, is hosting a contest in which breast cancer survivors can thank their co-survivors, the people who have been 'a source of strength and support through your diagnosis, treatment and beyond.' As we all know, survivors of any trauma often rely most on a single, special person to help pull them through the crisis.

Survivors can nominate their co-survivor for a chance to win a weekend at Victory Junction Gang Camp. To enter or learn more, click here. Cool idea.

Amen to that! Both my parents are cancer survivors. My mom went through it first, and she said that going through my dad's cancer experience as a bystander was harder than being in the middle of her own.

That support plays such a huge role. I love seeing those people recognized as well.

Prize or no prize, I think it's cool that we're recognizing the caregivers or compatriots who help us fight.

Cancer has had a scary presence in my family. We learned from experience that communicating with others in the same predicament is a huge help. I think programs like this are terrific!
