I tried to do my part in celebrating and spreading awareness about International TUMORS SUCK! Day on October 25th by passing out stickers to friends and faculty at my high school. Last year most of the teachers declined the opportunity to wear a sticker and support the mAss kickers of the world, probably because they disliked the use of the word “suck.” But, this year I think that the teachers recognized the fighting message within the campaign, and they came up to me and other students asking where they could get stickers! It was nice to see such a wave of support from my school – people had fun taking pictures with the stickers and some have kept the stickers on their blazers, covering my high school’s official seal haha. Most high school students don’t have to stop and spend time to think about how tumors/cancer affects their lives or others; I choose to, and am lucky to be surrounded with such supportive friends and family members who agree that TUMORS SUCK! I have a pretty cool plan for a photo next year, but it’ll take about 40 people to pull off what I have in mind..stay tuned!
