The thing here is that people aren't getting mad about you posting an awareness thing, its just there doesn't really need to BE any awareness raised about cancer, we KNOW that is happens to everyone and it's a sad and difficult time for families who have to deal with it, so to waste money on raising awareness is where this gets pointless.
Money needs to be invested in research, helping the families affected by cancer pay medical bills and stuff like that. And yes being a college student does make it harder to donate money to these causes but time is free, even when I took 18 hours this semester I still went and donated my time to several different organizations. Hell, I helped run a relay for life booth a couple of years ago and almost did 20 hours or that alone.
I'm really not trying to make myself look like a saint here, I'm just saying there is more you can do than raise awareness for a disease that people do not need to be told exists. If it really bothers you that much, find organizations you can get involved in and get your friends and stuff to help out, everyone has to work together to make a difference out there and find a cure for cancer.
