Now this is courage

Here's my vote for the Woman of the Week. (New Riot Kitty award.)

Good Morning America's Robin Roberts, who is undergoing treatment for breast cancer, strode down the catwalk sans wig:

Some of you may know that my grandmother is a breast cancer survivor and she has been in remission for 6 1/2 years.

Robin Roberts: You go girl! And may you have a speedy recovery.

Mom went through it twice. It was devastating to her. One of the few things I actively do fund-raisers for.

I saw that, it made me cry..
I have lost friends to both breast cancer and ovarian cancer.
Right now my State Senator and friend,
plus my hubba's cousin are in treatment for ovarian cancer, His sister also died from it.
Nasty disease and if ti affected
men I suspect there would be more research.
My main charity is the cancer relay for life that we hold in our community every year.

I hadn't seen that. It was brave indeed. I'm sure the support she got from it lifted her up.

(But did she have to wear such an ugly dress?)

Drew: You can count on us for the next fundraiser!

Green Tea: There is so much more we need to do to fund ovarian cancer research, as you point out.

Jessica: Sniff, I was just running out to buy a dress like that (just kidding.)

Viva: Hope you are feeling better!
