One of my memories from childhood, was being at my grandparents’ house in West Palm Beach, FL watching Joan Lunden report the news. When I was a child, I didn’t understand the complexities of what was happening in the news, but I was nevertheless drawn into whatever she was reporting. She was not only terrific at delivering the news, she was attractive. She was certainly a great role model for young girls.
Here she is now at 64 -still beautiful, but battling breast cancer. She asked her children their thoughts regarding posing for the front of People magazine (without a wig) and her son who is 11 said “Definitely do it…” She is an inspiration to women all over the country who are battling breast cancer. October is breast cancer awareness month.
