My Journey through Breast Cancer

On October 11, 2013, I was diagnosed with Stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC) ... or as we like to call it, extreme measures for a nap (EMFN). For a while, this blog will be my cancer journal. Enter at your own risk.

who knew?!

So, this morning, coworker Joel and I were chatting about silly things ... it started with Lindsay Lohan's arrest for drunk driving ... and then to how I always gets her confused with Hillary Duff ... who Joel thought was the girl on Sabrina, The Teenage Witch ... which I corrected him was actually Melissa Joan Hart ... which I had to check out on to make sure. Then I mentioned that I went to school with a girl who was on Kids, Incorporated back in the early/mid-80s, Stacy Ferguson. She was popular in school, and I got to go to her 4th grade birthday party. So, on a whim, I thought I'd look her up and see if she ever did anything after that.

I type in "Stacy Ferguson," and who comes up but Fergie, the one from the band Black Eyed Peas. I start laughing, automatically SURE its not the same girl. It can't be. I never heard of Stacy doing anything after Kids, Inc. Of course, after 8th grade we went to different schools and I totally lost track. But as I did a little more research, I found Fergie's bio ... she was born in Whittier, CA, grew up in Hacienda Heights, which is where I grew up. And as I scrolled down to the bottom of her acting and singing resume, there it is: Kids Incorporated, 1984 and 1986. Its the same girl! I went to school with Fergie!! The world truly is small sometimes.

If you're about my age, you probably remember Kids, Incorporated. I did a little research, and I found this video on YouTube that is absolutely hilarious. If you watch it to the end, they tell you which one is Stacy/Fergie. Enjoy a blast to the past!

Oh that's funny. She is the one who sings the song that I absolutely LOATHE... "Lady Lumps". Actually I'm not sure if that's what the song is called but I do that it is horrible. It is pretty darn cool that you went to her birthday party!
