There’s been a whole lot of love for Dr Birhiray going on in the comments lately. That’s great—beats the heck out of the comment recently left by Jamie, who apparently had no appreciation for the irony of hatin’ on a bunch of cancer survivors for poking fun at BC Barbie when she left the following comment:
“You people are ridiculous. You should feel embarrassed by the way you are replying to something so simple. This Barbie is only being used to spread the awareness. This Barbie was made to represent something devasting to many men and women in the world, breast cancer. No this Barbie isn’t realistic to the effects of breast cancer; but there is one thing, there is beauty in everything. God made everything beautiful. Even when we are having hard times, even when women who are beat down by breast cancer, this represents the beauty that is able to shine through in a bad situation. This Barbie was only to raise awareness, not to depict the actuality of breast cancer. Get real.”
(Sheesh. Jamie are you, like, the creator of breast cancer Barbie? Or are you just some random do-gooder swooping in to save all those poor beat-down breast cancer survivors from meanies like us? Newsflash, my dear—we ARE breast cancer survivors. I’ve got a 10 inch scar across my chest that gives me the right to make fun of Pink Ribbon Barbie all the live-long day. So chill. Dang.)
Alrighty then, so back to Dr Birhiray. As I said, there’s been a lot of folks loving on Dr B up in here, so I decided that gee, maybe we need to take this to the next level. So, my friends, I’ve set up a Dr Birhiray Fan Club group on Facebook. If you’re a patient, a family member, or even a friend who is really glad that your peeps have such a fantastic oncologist, please join!
My next appointment is in about a month, and I’d love to be able to show Dr B his fan club page with just gobs and gobs of folks on there. This will serve a couple of purposes. First, it will show Dr B how much he’s loved, because let’s face it, the man doesn’t always see happy endings and that’s got to wear him down sometimes. Second, I hope to enhance my status as Dr B’s favorite patient. Yeah, that’s right, apparently I must be his fave because at least one person googled “dr. birhiray favorite patient” and lo’ and behold they ended up here! So that must mean it’s true, right?
