We all need a little pick me up from time to time.  Here are two great stories about cancer, hope, love and fighting back!

1. This video was made by a few students at my school in honor of a student we lost to a brain tumor late last summer: (grr, Blogger won't let me embed this one)


2. This is a great story about a young couple given the dreaded "deadline" and how the help of perfect strangers makes dreams come true!  Small world moments.


Happy Tuesday!

Go Hillary!

Last year I had the privilege of meeting my Community Manager from the American Cancer Society for the Relay for Life I was chairing.  Her name is Hillary and she is an amazing cancer survivor.  Here is her story.  Listen to it, read it, share it.  She is awesome and I am so glad to call her a friend.

I've Done It!

I made the appointment for my mastectomy tattoo consultation.  April 27th, 6pm!  Nervous!  Pictures to follow once the work is done (maybe, still concerned that pics might risk my teaching job).
