Cancer affects everyone in some way, shape, or form, whether it's you personally, your best friend, your husband's family, your boyfriend, your girlfriend, or your coworker. This year is going to be Tickled Pink's ninth anniversary. I have at least 200 people who have come back year after year since the first one; it's a great event to go to and just have a blast.

Carrie loved life, and no matter what obstacles she faced or what anybody told her, she lived each day to the fullest. I never understood it, and maybe I was going through life too fast. When I think about it now, I'm like, 'Wow, this is what she knew.' You've got to take each day, live it the best that you can, and appreciate everything you have."
