As a Time magazine staffer, I attended the Time 100 gala last night at the Time Warner Center in New York. I introduced myself to honoree Elizabeth Edwards and told her how happy I was to meet her and that I was rooting for her. To indicate that I was a sister survivor, I pointed to my breasts and said, "Fake, fake." She patted my heart and said, "Real," and gave me a hug.

I read her book while on vacation last week and I have to say...she is quite an incredible woman! Her thoughtful gesture does not surprise me! She's always thinking of others.

Thanks for sharing that with us, what a great way to remember the evening!

Nimble-witted too, I thought, especially considering that she's probably whacked out on a chemistry kit of treatment infusions!
