A LIVESTRONG Action Kind of Day

Yep, that's my husband up there. Yep, that's a LIVESTRONG bracelet on his wrist. Yep, those are bubbles of magic chemo he put all around his head. And, yeppers, he's got a twisted sense of humor ... and I dig that about him. It's that "yeah, I've got cancer, but I've had bad trips before; I'll ride this one out, too" badass attitude that keeps him strong. That keeps me strong. That's why I chose that picture on his LIVESTRONG Action dedication page. You'll find it along with the story of why Jamie is the Phoenix. Go there. Now. Really. NOW. Because you can always come back here (in fact, why don't you bookmark, or subscribe, when you do come back? M'kay? Thanks!). But here is where you'll find almost 1,000 people just like Jamie (Probably more by now, J was #781) all over the world dedicated to fighting cancer. My husband is now part of the world's largest dedication book that LIVESTRONG Action will use to pressure world leaders to do more to fight cancer. From the site:
Right now, Lance Armstrong is dedicating his ride in the Tour de France to the fight against cancer. And after the race, he'll send this dedication book -- with your signature -- to world leaders 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.
Check it out. Add your name. That's it. It takes just a second, doesn't cost a thing, and will make you a part of a big worldwide team trying to ride this trip out and come out better on the other side. You'll do it. I know you will. You've got that inner badass just like we do. And I dig that about you.
