As an added incentive, a donor has pledged to give $30,000 if we can collect 30,000 signatures before the end of the Tour. I'll send these signatures to world leaders after the Tour de France and pressure them to make cancer a priority in their own countries. It’s our best chance to push for better treatment, more funding for cancer research and access to care for everyone around the world. When you sign the declaration, you'll be able to dedicate that action to a or caregiver who has inspired you. I dedicated my signature to my mom, who stuck by me -- and fought alongside me -- throughout my cancer fight. Who will you dedicate yours to?So now, really, what are you waiting for? Go add your name. If you've already added your name, click on that nifty yellow link on the bottom and send it to a friend, or two, or 20. If you'd like to create a page for someone else, you can click the nifty red link at the top and do that. My goal was to get 25 names on the page, but now you've awakened the overachiever in me (she doesn't sleep very soundly). Now I want to see Jamie's name in that upper right margin under "Top Dedications." In the time I've been writing this post, two more signatures have landed on J's page. See? I know my peeps rock. And I really, really, really do dig that about you.

Hard. (*Please indulge both my Midwestern roots and my Southern conventions with my combo of ya'll & you guys. Cute, no? I can't claim it -- my goddaughter H invented it when she was a toddler, and I like it. It could catch on.) So-o-o-o-o-o-o, when I returned from my girl-lunch date with B (who asked how I decided what to write about each day ... here's your answer ...) I had an e-mail waiting for me from Lance Armstrong. Yeah, we're buds (inasmuch as he's buds with all the other millions of folks he's inspired). So my boy Lance had this to say regarding the LIVESTRONG Action campaign and the dedication book filled with names:
