Common Courtesy

Some may consider this a rant, I consider it an observation. I have been debating this completely off topic post for a few days now, and a FB post from a friend prompted me to it immediately. It could very easily be considered a rant, because there will be a level of profanity (I promise), a little bit of outrage, and some snarkiness directed to members of society.

Sorry that it has been awhile, fairly busy summer overall. To add some details and examples to the video about the lack of support for Bladder Cancer.  I can’t even get Alberta Cancer Foundation, or the Alberta Cancer society, to retweet information about Bladder Cancer awareness, and the fundraising walk on social media.
