Breast Cancer Rears its Head

I don't want to be a downer here, but please read this.

Now go check your breasts. Promise to do so every other month. Read here to learn why every month might be too often. I'm no doctor, though I aspired to be one, so check with a real doc to ask questions and find out what's right for you.

Here's an article on CNN's site about the mom from Toddler Planet whom I raced in celebration of. Check it out.

And by the way, my new favorite breast cancer walk T-shirt says Hakuna Ma Ta-Tas. Love it.

Oh, I know, I know. I read that a couple days ago and couldn't stop crying. Thanks for the info - so very, very important.

Team Hakuna MaTaTa's will add her name to our growing "vine of hope". We have been adding names of survivors, fighters, and those we memorialize. Unfortunately, our vine is growing a rapid pace. It seems everyone knows someone or a few people fighting this insidious disease. We will display this "vine of hope" as our team links our tents together at camp during the 3 day in September. Kudos to you for continuing to bring our attention to this cause and sharing with us such amazing people like Andrea.
Another powerful reminder to take nothing for granted.
