We hope you agree with us that today's Opinions page is a lot more than pink. We have been blessed with some very compelling Reader's Views and Letters to the Editor from local people who have, in one way or another, been affected by breast cancer.
In fact, much of the paper has been devoted to the topic because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We asked readers to offer their accounts of coping with the disease, whether they were being treated or whether they were offering support to a cancer patient. We hope you see the same levels of compassion and courage in these submissions that we did.
We thank the authors, who range from a former Boise mayor to a former Meridian school superintendent to a man who is facing a battle against cancer and is inspired in part by the courage of his late mother.
