I've said it before, but I have to say it again. You are my hero. There are so many of us that wish the world could be different in some way and there you are leading the charge in DC to evoke a positive change. Can't wait to read all about your trip!

I made the top 10? That's impressive!

Thanks for including me. :) And for doing what you can to actually make a difference for cancer survivors (as opposed to just talking about it)...
