A friend, reader and fellow breast cancer rodeo contestant sent me this photo and I wanted to share it with you in case you haven’t seen it, in a nod to Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I’ve always heard the queen had a sense of humor. Lest there be any doubt that thing she did with Daniel Craig during the Olympics Opening Ceremonies would erase it.
Turns out Buckingham Palace isn’t the only thing in London in the pink. Go to the Daily Mail Online article to see what else has a rosy glow these days–and nights.
And speaking of a rosy glow, no one glows rosier than Hollye Jacobs, whose blog The Silver Pen began a couple of years ago with her own diagnosis and treatment for FBC, or F-bomb breast cancer as she calls it.
