The first row, far right. Meet Kellie. She is my half sister. And she found out five years ago that she had stage 3 breast cancer. Her baby boy was only 1 and she found it on her own, through a self check women everywhere are encouraged to perform.

There is happy news to this story. She is currently in remission and can now be considered a cancer survivor!

It couldn't have been done two decades ago. Without the advances in cancer research, she would not be Walking (60 miles) for a cure as pictured above. Imagine the energy that is at an event like that. There are others! Race for a Cure or Relay for Life or Team in Training (among others) that put people out in the world, expending energy in an effort to Find. A. Cure.

Why does Prop 29 have to be any different? Does the word Proposition sound too political? Maybe. But, it doesn't have to. Because in reality it is simply Americans/Californians/Mothers choosing voting to leave this world a better place.

Undo Tobacco everywhere. If you haven't already, watch this 35 second clip on living in a tobacco-free world.
