As I'm sure you know, about 776 BC, a naked chef (truly naked, as in 'without clothing', not as in 'Jamie Oliver') named Coroebus took a run in what would be the first recorded Olympic games. His likeness is above. To this day, I have never seen a jersey with "Coroebus" on the back, and that's a darned shame. Of course, that sassy Heracles was supposed to have started it quite some time before that.  But I digress!

There are a myriad of athletes who have shared similar battles - on and off the field of competition. Did you know, fellow cancer warriors, that the following people have had cancer just like you and I? Please let me know who else should be added to the list; I know I've missed a few!  For your convenience, I've put them in order of cute haircut:

Dorothy Hamill
Eric Shanteau
Shannon Miller 

Lillian Board
Natalya Tsupikova
Michael Milton
Gabriele Anderson
Scott Hamilton

If you know me at all, you know I adore Scott Hamilton.  Were the list in order of anything else, he would be at the top.  Sorry, Scott.  :-D

So please chime in, tell me who else is should be on the list - and in what order!
