I refuse to be labelled as "overhead".

I am a paid employee at a non-profit organization. Being labelled as "overhead" is absolutely demoralizing. I refuse to be treated as an expense that must be minimized at all costs instead of an investment that has the potential to grow.

Never thought of it this way before but now I can't fathom why such a ridiculous double standard exists between the for-profit and non-profit worlds. This needs to change. People need to change the way they look at the non-profit world.

Want to find a cure for cancer, end hunger, or save the environment? The solutions sure won't come out of condemning charities and the people who work for them for being enabled and rewarded in their efforts to do so.

The child selling lemonade is absolutely inspirational but it really shouldn't have to come to that point. I'm truly grateful for the healthcare system in Canada and I do hope governments across the world continue to find ways to make quality healthcare as accessible as possible.
 
When Life Hands You Cancer - Make cancer-ade?
because we all know someone affected by cancer

I found this article via friend and cancer survivor +Lori Dorn. She and this little boy are inspirational to say the least. Author +Xeni Jardin (undergoing breast cancer treatment) also has this to say:

"The moral of the chemotherapy lemonade stand stories is this: If you have cancer in America, and you are not sitting on a big pile of cash, then God help you. Because our health care system sure as hell won't."

What are your thoughts?

The Cruel Statistic

According to the Canadian Cancer Society, approximately 2 out of 5 Canadians will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime. That's probably a much larger number than most people realize. Sure, everyone's aware of the disease, most of us know of someone getting diagnosed, but no one really expects it to happen to themselves or to a loved one. We all assume we're somehow invulnerable, despite all the statistics that are thrown at us. We assume immunity because we've done an excellent job taking care of our bodies. We eat the right food, we exercise regularly and we make all the right choices - we're in great shape. And yet that diagnosis comes, seemingly from nowhere, and we are overcome with utmost shock and disbelief. "Impossible!", we exclaim. "Not me. Not my family." For every family that has ever been touched by cancer, it's a complete injustice.

The cruelty of all these statistics is haunting. As much as we attempt to avoid all those risks, we just can't seem to get rid of them completely. Cancer comes indiscriminately, seemingly without the need to justify itself. But I believe we're bigger than a statistic. I refuse to accept that we are simply slaves to statistics, helplessly waiting for the die to be cast, praying we don't end up on the losing end of a deadly game of chance. If 2 out of 5 Canadians develop cancer, the other 3 are sure to be there for them - conducting life-saving research, ceaselessly providing care and treatment, raising funds, spreading awareness, advocating for change, or simply standing by their side.

Here's another statistic: according to the Canadian Cancer Society, approximately 1 out of 4 Canadians will die of cancer. I refuse to accept this statistic as permanent. I truly believe that there will come day when this number ultimately falls to a big fat ZERO. Will you accept this statistic?
