Love this song.  Melissa Ethridge, “I Run For Life”…and a montage of some kick ass survivors.

It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Have you had your mammogram?  How’s your health care?  Whatever your situation, wherever you are in the journey, support is everything.  For all the mothers and grandmas, sisters and aunts, friends and wives, girlfiends and partners and children (and men!) out there who have had to face breast cancer, consider this a cheer from someone who is one more lump away from joining you.  We all run for life.  Let’s make sure we make it a damn good race, shall we?

…love ya, Jane
