My friend Karen Fontana Chesleigh lost her Mom to breast cancer and in her honor, has created an entire movement based on their "secret I LOVE YOU code." (see more below) In honor of Mother's Day this month, tell someone you love to have a mammogram - then remind them to do their breast self exam, BSE - for life!  813!
Hope Lives!

The Love Armor Project
I met artist Shirley Klinghoffer a few years ago on a flight home from
Santa Fe, New Mexico, when we were seated next to one another in my very first "bump-up" to First Class!  Shirley noticed my "pink ribbon pin" and asked about it.  I told her I was a survivor and she admitted she was traveling to NYC to begin her own  treatment for breast cancer the following week.  Long story short...Shirley and I have become
"survivor sisters" - and dear, dear friends.  Shirley's "LOVE ARMOR" Project is coming to NYC - and you're invited!  Go to learn more about this incredible project and the amazing woman that inspired it.
