Calling on all supporters to re-launch the media campaign!
On Thursday morning the Senior Vice President of Marketing at Kohl’s contacted METAvivor President Kelly Lange to open a dialog about our conflicting awareness campaigns. We are grateful to all our supporters for bringing our concerns to Kohl’s attention. And we are grateful to Kohl’s for hearing our voices and entering into dialogue with us. We hope a mutually agreeable arrangement can be decided upon very quickly. We will keep everyone informed. In the meantime we ask everyone to use your social media outlets to express why metastatic disease is the real elephant in the pink room of breast cancer.
As of 9 PM EST METAvivor has received no contact from Kohl’s, other than an automatically generated acknowledgement that our emailed letter was received by customer service. Direct emails to Kohl’s executive staff remain unanswered.
On Friday, February 21 a staff member at Kohl's told us to expect a call from the President of Kohl's by the end of the day. As of Monday evening, February 24 we have not heard from Mr. Mansell, or from anyone else at Kohl's or Komen. Read the letter we sent to Kohl's and Komen this evening.
