Kicking cancer's ass, one fashionable event at a time ...

We Can-Cer vive
I have a good friend who had a double mastectomy and she is my hero! Her breasts were not what defined her but were only a small piece of her persona. She is just as much a woman now, without them, without reconstructive surgery, as she ever was … maybe even more so. Of course, my friend made me rethink the way I think about women with cancer, about anyone with cancer as a matter of fact. No longer do I think these women are sad,  silent or sickly. No longer do I think that cancer defines who they are. I now know they are vibrant, courageous women/people who are making a difference throughout the world. I don't think they want us to think of them as weak with disease but as strong heroines who are kicking cancer's ass! They are feisty, funny and fashionable. Find out more about these women (and people who love and support them) at three fabulous charities I support:
