A two-time cancer survivor said that she was forced to cover up a sweatshirt carrying a message celebrating her recovery during an American Airlines flight.

Roslyn Singleton's sweatshirt read “(expletive) Cancer" -- a message that describes how she feels about the disease that nearly took her life, reported WSOC-TV. “I don’t love cancer. I don’t respect it, and my sweatshirt gave my exact sentiments on something that has tried to kill me twice," she said.

Singleton said that she initially asked to see the airline policy in writing but followed the instruction after an employee asked her to cover the message. But later, she was approached by a second staff member regarding the issue.

“The first thing she said to me -- she didn’t say hello, she didn’t say ma’am, she didn’t say anything -- she said, ‘I was made aware that there was an issue,’” Singleton said.

“I literally just took my jacket off. I ripped the sweatshirt off my body and I just walked away and stood in line and felt humiliated because she literally pointed me out like a child after I complied with what they asked me to do," she added.

American Airlines later issued a statement regarding the matter.

“American’s policies prohibit clothing that displays offensive statements and inappropriate language from being worn on board. In this instance, our team should have taken the broader context of the message displayed on the customer’s shirt into consideration when explaining our policies," read the statement.

"Our team is reaching out to learn more about Ms. Singleton’s experience, apologize and reaffirm our support for efforts to fight cancer.”

Singleton said the issue isn’t what they asked her to do, but how they "humiliated" her. “If I would’ve been approached differently, and the delivery would’ve been different, I would’ve gladly had no problem, but I was humiliated,” she said.

Singleton has hired an attorney and they’re asking American Airlines for an apology, that the employees involved be fired and for AA to review its training on how to handle customer conflicts.

In another news, an eight-year-old cancer survivor in San Bernardino, California, is using some of the proceeds from her Girl Scout cookie sales to help others battling cancer.

Lilly Bumpus, who has been a Girl Scout for four years, said she recently sold 32,484 boxes of Girl Scout cookies.

A majority of the funds raised by her team will go towards cancer research and feeding the homeless. Out of the boxes sold, 5,200 boxes are also being donated to "fellow childhood cancer warriors in the hospitals," said Bumpus.

A spokesperson for the Girl Scouts of America said in a statement to CNN that the organization applauds "Lilly's entrepreneurial efforts, awesome sales goal, and donations!"

The Girl Scouts of America said it doesn't track official top cookie sellers at the national level. However, "there are so many impressive cookie bosses throughout the United States, and our 111 councils, which handle their own sales tracking, may track their top sellers locally" like Bumpus, the spokesperson said.

Breast Cancer October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and while most believe that the month revolves around wearing various pink accessories, it is truly so much more than that. Shutterstock.com
