Strongly Worded

Catharsis can be achieved a number of ways: beating things, yelling obscenities, crying like a baby.

Give the punching bag and tear ducts a rest and pick up a sewing needle and a Subversive Cross Stitch F**k Cancer sampler kit instead. Juxtaposed against pink bunnies and pastel floral motifs, the honest piece of home decor lets everyone know how you really feel.

Rebellious needlepoint may seem like a little drop in the vast sea of chemo and doctor-speak, but 50 percent of profits are donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. So your protestations provide dollars toward eradicating those metastatic bastards.

And no matter how you say it, actions speak louder than words.
