Beautiful cancer patient – love project

Her name is Nada (in serbian: Hope) and she is 37 years old. At the moment she is fighting another heavy battle in a row, one of many, all the way back from 2002.

Outside of hospitals and chemotherapies she is doing her best to have normal life, perhaps even more beautiful one, if she is allowed to say it that way, having in mind how things can change in a single day.

Here is her story about her experience with cancer, Beautiful cancer patient – Love Project

(more after the video)


With their e-book project Beautiful Cancer Patient, a collection of poetry and stories, Nada and her fiance Alexander promote positive attitude and they are dedicating it to all people around the world, who are fighting a cancer. This is something real. This is a true story about love, fight, trust, honour and (self)respect…

It’s also painful, agonizing, debilitating, often humiliating and very personal fight and has a little in common with the high-gloss slogans and photos of a pink ribbon campaigns.

Beautiful Cancer Patient is a inspirational story about Nada and her wish, as she says, to become unbeaten champion, like Mohammad Ali.
It is her own campaign against cancer.

We recently had the opportunity to see several advertising campaigns about cancer awareness.
Cancer has become a selling point, breast cancer awareness campaigns have become too provocative sexy and Breast Cancer Awareness Month October turned into “pinkwashing” month.

A lot of companies all over the world make a big money with it.
No other disease binds more celebrities in the campaigns and has more sponsors like cancer awareness campaigns.
We forget that cancer is not a tool to earn money through pink-abstract-consumption.

In the clear words, cancer is not pink and Nada and other women who are fighting cancer know this and they don’t live in pinkfiction… they are facing and fighting the enemy every day.

The true Survivors!

Branding a time-bound campaign, Forest & Bird did it.

It’s not new but it is not often used: branding for a time-bound campaign. The kind of branding used for temporary purpose. Forest & Bird did it recently for their Love Nature: Vote 2014 campaign. New Zealand’s largest independent conservation organisation wanted nature back on the political agenda. The future…

Yesterday, it finally happened. Somebody challenged me to the Ice Bucket Challenge for ALS. If your internet connection has been broken all summer, it’s this year’s big meme. You can read about it here. To be honest, I felt that the movement had passed its high-water mark when I saw…
