Gogglebox and Cancer Appeal
I have watched a couple of these now and like the celebs and 'ordinary folk' on the programme have cried along with them at the heartbreaking stories told.
Everyone knows I am an older LD member so believe me cancer appeals have been going all my life but the sad thing is......nothing has changed, no cures, just a few better control drugs and a rise in cases. 1 in 3 ten years ago, 1 in 2 now. Yet we still hear the constant chant of stand up to cancer, we WILL find a cure, cancer we're coming for you etc.
If we haven't found one by now I doubt we ever will and it is to the drug companies benefit if we don't. Same with other diseases that need rest of life drugs.
I feel the same about other appeals, Oxfam, nothing changes, Red Nose etc. The asking and giving continues ad infinitum but the problems never go away.
