After being diagnosed with breast cancer, Dana Cowin decided she could either curl up into a ball and cry—or celebrate the things in her life that mattered most. Dana, who describes herself as "pathologically positive," chose the latter option and celebrated her way from therapy into recovery through a series of parties. Gayle talks with Dana, editor-in-chief of Food & Wine magazine, about her story, which she shares in "Is This Any Time for a Party?" in the October 2008 issue of O, The Oprah Magazine .
