Save the TaTa’s

Hollani Davis and Kim McBroom emcee Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

CBS has a little hit show. Maybe you’ve heard of it… “Survivor”?

While couples on that reality series try to outsmart each other, their reality can’t even compare to the thousands of women (and yes, men) who are survivors in the true sense of the word.

They are Breast Cancer Survivors.   How privileged I was this weekend to meet many of these women who’ve battled and are battling breast cancer.  If you have never talked with a survivor before, you may not understand how crucial it is to give yourself your own breast exams (or get a mammogram if you are “of” age or have a history of breast cancer in your family).  It only takes 30 seconds of feelin’ around “up there” to save your life!

I’m so enamored by the courage I saw…and let’s not forget about the humor.  There was a group attending the race Saturday with lime green shirts.  On them, a simple slogan…. “Save the TaTa’s”  …my thoughts exactly.
