Tuesday August 31, 2010
Until today, I didn't know that actress Jennifer Grey, beloved for her role as "Baby" alongside Patrick Swayze in the film "Dirty Dancing," was a thyroid cancer survivor. Her two recent thyroid cancer surgeries, however, are mentioned and discussed in a USA Today article today that announces the new celebrity cast of ABC's Dancing With the Stars this fall. According to USA Today, , the 50-year-old Grey is feeling well, and has a new exercise regimen and outlook on life, saying: "I began saying yes to everything scary that could be fun and joyful and not be controlled by fear....[Dancing With the Stars] could be a huge disaster for me, but I'm willing to take that chance. Life is short."

I really admire Jennifer Grey for having the guts to go back dancing for her former co-star.
