In Breast Cancer, Recent Posts by Barbara Jacoby

On Tuesday, March 8th, we celebrate International Women’s Day “which celebrates respect, appreciation and the empowerment of women all over the world”.  For me, I have chosen to honor this day by focusing on breast cancer, and in particular, directing all women to the “Susan G.

I could not believe my eyes when I read this story about a group of Washington state referees that banned together to donate their high school refereeing game checks to support the Susan G.

In case you didn’t catch the messages last evening, Let Life Happen TALK launched its first internet broadcast at 8:00 p.m.  It was almost as much of a surprise to me as it is to you as Kirk did not tell me about it until late Friday afternoon after he had the whole thing all set.  However, I must say …
