You Are Loved

I’m pretty sure this falls under the heading “Things A Man Wouldn’t Write About”, but the story is compelling, and this information should be shared far and wide.  Last summer, a young woman named Amy Rae Elifritz died of Toxic Shock Syndrome as a result of using tampons.  Years ago, there was an outbreak of deaths from “Rely” brand tampons, which were made of polyester fibers and designed to hold more fluid.

If you have daughters, take a minute and look over the brochure in the link above, it offers important information that just might save a life.  I’m always in awe of people who are able to turn personal tragedy into advocacy.  Go visit You Are Loved and help get the word out.

  1. Real men never give a shit about whether other men think they’re not doing the manly thing. Thanks, Mack.

    It’s very manly to look out for the health and safety of your wives/girlfriends, daughters, sisters, and female cousins and friends.
