Since I always talk about the work we do with breast cancer survivors & their families, and I always mention the Hope Bus, on which I work from April through November, I wanted to share an episode of our local PBS series, "Behind the Ribbon." The first 2 episodes' topics were young survivors (women 40 and under) and our fashion show ("Beauty & the Beast"). The 3rd focuses on the Hope Bus and you get to meet a couple of the survivors who volunteer on the bus. If you're interested, here's the link:

If you watch, I'd love to get your comments & suggestions.

Thank you, Carol & Sue. This coming Thursday we are bringing 30 breast cancer survivors to the Enchantment Resort in Sedona for our annual retreat. I am going this year. Some of them are taking balloon rides, going to the Grand Canyon in a pink trekker, training in level 1 reiki, and attending a starfish making class...as well as selecting from the resorts daily schedule. It is a 5 day trip.

Thank you for sharing -- everyone need to realize that they are not alone, and this is an inspiring way to do just that.

Thanks so much for the link - I can't think of any more rewarding work than providing love, support, encouragement and hope to all those embarking on this difficult journey. No one should ever have to face it alone.
