PFAS are called “forever chemicals” because they don’t break down, and evidence shows that even very low levels of PFAS exposure is not safe for human health.
Please consider joining Breast Cancer Action in their campaign to call out corporate giant 3M for pinkwashing while continuing toproduce and use toxic PFAS. 3M says their pink products are a “reminder of a good cause” even though their toxic “forever chemicals” may increase the risk of breast cancer. This hypocrisy is called pinkwashing.
Read Kara Kenan’s story. She was exposed to toxic PFAS for much of her life and diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35.
I am originally from New Jersey and moved to Los Angeles with my family at age 12. After graduating from San Diego State University with a BA in Journalism, I had a short-stint in magazine advertising sales before landing my "dream job" with Club Med. For two years I worked at resorts in Mexico, The Bahamas, The Dominican Republic and Colorado. My husband Glenn & I met in Ixtapa, Mexico and we embarked on a two year honeymoon around the world. This was also a research project for a book we wrote called "When The Travel Bug Bites: Creative Ways to Earn, Save and Stay Abroad." I am also the author of a quote book for new graduates -- "Cheatnotes on Life: Lessons From The Classroom of Life." In 1997, we settled in San Diego and I was blessed to work part-time from home for non-profit organizations while raising our two boys. In 2010, a DCIS diagnosis changed my life. DCIS 411 is the culmination of my on-going journey and discoveries.
