Breast Cancer Research Foundation and So You Think You Can Dance

You might be thinking with that title, "Say what?" I started the day on a two hour board meeting call for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, an organization that has as it's mission to find a cure for this horrible disease.  In 2008 alone they gave over $34 million dollars to 166 of the top scientists around the world.  It was founded by Evelyn Lauder, a truly amazing women, who chairs every board meeting with passion and enthusiasm.  All our lives have and will be touched by this disease and I am honored to play a small part in moving us closer to a cure. 

Tonight, I watched one of the most beautiful and moving performances I have ever seen on "So You Think You Can Dance".  It told the story of  Breast Cancer in dance.  The dancers were Melissa and Ade,the choreographer Tice Diorio,  and it was truly, truly moving.  I was crying, the judges were crying, the audience was left in tears... It was posted 51 minutes ago on YOUTUBE....  Click here to watch.

Every Wednesday night I watch this show with my two children not only because the dancing is amazing, but because of the stories that are told through dance.  Thank you FOX for this amazing program.
