    I didn't remember Dorothy Hamill having breast cancer, did you? I remember her being in the Olympics years ago.

    In this interview, she describes what it was like going through it back then vs. now with social media and everyone knowing everything about you. It's an interesting look at how we have changed.

      I remember her ice skating skill but nothing of her life thereafter. Glad for her that she is alive and happy.

      I just remember her graceful skating. But we didn't have social media and other ways of getting the news. And some people are private and don't want the whole world to know their business. And yet other people want to yell the world everything, like the big K clan.

      It's kind of funny to watch those old videos of the way they used to skate back then and compare it to current times. Man, what a difference, technology isn't the only thing that has changed!
