Christina Applegate on Oprah

We should had known that Christina would end up on Oprah to talk about how she kicked breast cancer's ass and the decision to have a double mastectomy. Well she's on TODAY!

Also on the show will be Nancy Brinker, who brought breast cancer to the forefront after founding the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and subsequently the 5K Race for the Cure. To date, the foundation has raised over $11 billion for the cause! Other breast cancer survivors will also share their stories in a show which encourages women to be their own advocates for their health.

While we all applaud the work that Nancy has done, especially making it cool to care about breast cancer, I must also point you to the Think Before You Pink project from the Breast Cancer Action campaign. Just as we can't buy our way out of this economic crisis, I don't think we can buy our way to the cure for cancer. Don't spend $10 on a gizmo you don't need that will send $1 to Komen. Instead send $5 to Komen...they get more money and you have one less piece of junk.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show
