YSC Rocked 2012!

  Wow! What a year! So much happened, yet I feel like the year went by in a flash. There are exciting things coming to YSC in 2013. Before we dive into where we are going, we should celebrate where we have been.    Here is my 2012 Recap:   1 YSC, Face 2...

Full of Cheer

Isn’t this supposed to be the time of year that’s “full of cheer”? I don’t know about you, but these days I feel like night time comes right after lunch … and then there’s all the Christmas stuff. It’s sort of like “pink” in October … it’s everywhere...

Imagine If

Some days the world of breast cancer that we live in seems larger than I can manage. I want to shake my fists when I hear about another diagnosis or scream out loud when we lose another young woman. Will it ever end? I know there are many smart and determined people...

The Power Lies with You

As October winds down and we all begin to shift our focus to Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, it is important to remember that our voice matters and we can each make a difference. We are all so busy balancing our lives that I sometimes question whether a small...

I Will Never Forget Tour de Pink 2012

  Tour de Pink is hard. Some think it might be too hard … but I think it’s just right. It’s supposed to be hard. Because it’s about proving to yourself that you’re just as strong, if not stronger, than everyone else … even though you had breast...

This Ride Is Not About Winning

The first of two Tour de Pink rides happening this weekend starts tomorrow, and I can’t tell if I am nervous that it will be too hard, excited for the challenge or anxious to have this behind me … probably a combination of all three. I have to be honest,...

Community and Celebration

This past weekend I flew to Kansas City to attend YSC Kansas City’s In Living Pink gala. It was awesome! Everyone looked beautiful and the energy throughout the event was electrifying, filled with love and compassion. My favorite part of any YSC In Living Pink event...

Staying in the Moment

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.” — Buddha All of us have given this concept thought at some point in our...

East Coast versus West Coast

I bet if we all took a look at our friends and where they live, we would have people close to us on BOTH coasts … and everywhere in between! Take me for example. I grew up in the Bay Area in California. I love my sweatpants, I wish could wear jeans to work every day,...

TdP East Coast is 6 Weeks Away!

Tour de Pink East Coast is six weeks away. When I decided to ride TdP last fall, I was so weak from all my surgeries the year before that I was not able to walk up a flight of stairs without pain. I hadn’t ridden a bike since I was a small child and had built up...
