Anything For Love

Via Albert Bredenhann. In February 2014, one of Gerdi McKenna’s friends wrote an email requesting a photoshoot for all her friends as she was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months before … and this what happened…

This video basically made me weep. My grandmother lost one breast to cancer in  the 70s and then it recurred and finally took her life in the mid-90s. I remember stories of how ostracized she felt. I love that communities are rallying behind their friends and not just raising money for the cause, but making their lives better as they battle this terrible disease.

They just allowed her back by special vote. Oh wait, ha, it is sitting in my Twitter feed in the sidebar because I RTed it:
