"It's All About You"

...and living strong.

Last September, I had the chance to meet a young boy whose life I had been following through family friends. Jimmy Fowkes has survived cancer twice. He's sixteen years old. Throughout his battles, he has grown close with Lance Armstrong and he has only grown stronger because of his battles.

It leaves me speechless and in awe about how brave a little boy, his sister, mom and dad can be and thankfully, Jimmy is here today to talk about it.

Nike has started a new "It's About You" campaign and it truly is all about them and it's all kinds of amazing.

If you scroll to the bottom of the page, Jimmy is the second to far right and you should click on his picture to get his (and his sister, Molly's) story.

Makes you think twice about a "bad day" you may have just had.
