Karen Duffy, a former MTV VJ, lives with a disease called Sarcoidosis. She wrote brilliantly about her plight in her memoir, Model Patient: My Life as an Incurable Wise-Ass. She is a great example of courage and strength.
Next I meet Ranjana! Ranjana was a model in the '70s! She looks incredible. What a beautiful woman inside and out. And, can you believe what we women do for beauty!?! From injecting botulism into our faces, placenta facials, and a buffet of the latest creams and elixirs, NOW we are being asked to make fish faces in the middle of an elegant NYC cocktail party! And we all make them! Lovely.
Keeping it all in perspective, the highlight of my week was attending and speaking at the Challenged Athletes Foundation. I presented a hero -- a nine-year-old girl who lost both limbs as an infant, named Haven Shepard. If she can continue to thrive, I am confident that we can all rise above some of life's silliness.
Thank you for all your support, and kindness!
