So many celebrities facing cancer just like the rest of us.  Angelina Jolie’s decision to undergo a prophylactic double mastectomy has drown-out other celebrity cancer news; from Tommy Chong’s claim that diet and marijuana cured his prostate cancer, to Angie Everhart’s thyroid cancer diagnosis.

Here are some links to reputable media outlet’s reporting on each:

I’m in the camp that celebrity cancer stories help raise awareness and encourage giving, hopefully to reputable, targeted research related groups.  Pat and I wish them all our best…

Feel good and keep smiling!  Pattie
