I was saddened to learn about Kylie Minogue's breast cancer diagnosis. I'm so grateful that they found it early.  (Yet another reminder for all women to have annual mammograms.)  Aside from being tremendously talented, Kylie's a fighter and I know this is a battle she will win.  Let's all  pray for her speedy recovery and send all of our best wishes her way.  With love and light to you Kylie...Madonna
