#562 Chug-a-lug of H2O!

                                                         


Bottoms up!

                                                            October 2

It is still October and I thought by now the flurry of "Pink" activity would have been replaced by an AWARENESS that we need more research funding to save lives.  Nope, the hilarity and "good feelings" of cancer survivorship continue on national TV and I have not heard one mention that we need a cure. Wake up, people!   Grrrrr.

Enough ranting, I'm back with our second day of healthy living and an important fact about MBC.
