CANCER FUNDRAISER FLYER
Utter Intuition & Carnegie PR Presents F*CK Cancer! The Crusade Against Cancer Fundraising Event Part Two
(September 26, 2013 New York, NY)- Cancer is a disease that affects us all in some way or another. We either have family members or friends that have been directly affected by it. The disease remains the second most common cause of death in the United States, accounting for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths. According to the American Cancer Society, about 1,660, 290 new cases of cancer will be diagnosed this year, and about 580,350,00 Americans are projected to die this year alone from the disease. That means almost 1,600 people a day will die from cancer.

More Moms Cutting Maternity Leave Short Because, Well, We Need To Get the Dollar Bills, Y’all.

On this much, I am very clear: when I had my first baby more than 14 years ago, I was blessed to be working at a time when the economy was strong, a good job with benefits could be had, and a decent maternity leave was still possible. Between a year’s worth of vacay and sick days, the federally-mandated 12-week maternity leave and a few more months unpaid maternity leave I coaxed out of HR, I managed to scrape up a full nine months worth of leave with my Mari—time off with my baby that I could afford because the hubs and I had some money saved. I recognized that what I pulled off was huge, even in those prosperous times, particularly for a Black mom. But it’s clear that had I needed maternity leave today, I’d probably be in the same boat with 40 percent of new moms, taking one to four weeks of maternity leave or worse, none at all.

From Today Moms:

About two-thirds of U.S. women are employed during pregnancy and about 70 percent of them report taking some time off, according to most recent figures from the National Center for Health Statistics. The average maternity leave in the U.S. is about 10 weeks, but about half of new moms took at least five weeks, with about a quarter taking nine weeks or more, figures showed.

But a closer look shows that 16 percent of new moms took only one to four weeks away from work after the birth of a child — and 33 percent took no formal time off at all, returning to job duty almost immediately. Read more…
