Robin Roberts Brave Fight

Excellence in media and journalism should be recognized in a world that values entertainment as news. I was startled to learn that Robin Roberts was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and will have surgery this week. Our collective prayers and wishes should go to her and her family as they embark upon this time. She found it early and the prognosis is said to be good. Television is such a double edged sword, we let things, topics, people into our homes ...and more and more of us are simply turning it off. Robin is a good reason to turn it on in the a.m., and her wit about everyday situations can put a smile on your face. I think her rising star was solidified with her heartfelt coverage of Hurricane Katrina, but she brings awareness to another great cause today.

Check your girls! Get them looked at, I admit that I have not had my baseline mammogram and this has reminded me - unfortunately, to once again get back to the health and wellness that is so important for us as women. Our prayers go out to this public persona at a very personal and private time. For the rest of you, let's take a page from her book....are you taking care of yourself ladies? What are you doing to make sure that you are doing the best with what God gave ya. Much love Robin Roberts! We are praying for you.
