Tears and Cheers: Today Was My Last Day Being Treated For Breast Cancer
Nine months ago my doctor called me and the first thing she did after quickly dispensing with the usual hello, how are you? pleasantries was ask if I was in the car driving. I knew in that instant that she was going to tell me that the lump I'd found in my ...

Piers Morgan Has Brilliant Ideas About the N-Word Said No One Ever
Today I woke up thinking about how to my 11-year-old son has been testing my patience by talking about balls. And I'm not referring to the ones that are thrown, kicked or bounced. Some other kid got kicked in the balls at school-or got a knee in the balls...

Watched this around 3 AM last night (chemo has given me serious gastrointestinal problems). Really worth watching to counter the "Breast Cancer Awareness Month" hype.

Sometimes Cancer Has Me Feeling (and Maybe Looking) Like Gollum
As you can see, I didn't let my sons shave my head. I changed my mind. I'm too curious--I want to see if it'll really all fall out on my own. But I did let 13-year-old Mr. O chop it to chin length. If the few strands I'm hanging onto manage to last through ...

Thanks to Chemotherapy, My Hair Is Now Circling the Drain
It's one thing to know that your hair is going to fall out because of chemotherapy, but 10 days into treatment for breast cancer , it's another thing entirely to actually experience your locks leaving the body. Alas, there it is, the evidence on my shower f...

Yes, Vomiting on Yourself Is Totally Worth it if Cancer Dies
There got to be a point during my cancer treatment when, in the grand scheme of horrible side effects, vomiting on myself didn't seem so bad. Maybe it was the first time the chemo drugs burned through my veins and I got life-threatening blood clots. Maybe i...

7 Things About Breast Cancer That No One Will Tell You (But I Will)
I'm helping one of my sons study for his big history test. It is strictly drill-and-kill time in our living room. So while he's sitting next to me cramming (I'll grill him in 10 minutes) I've been thinking of a few things I didn't know about breast cancer b...

If Those White Lesbian Moms Win Their Biracial Baby Suit, I'm Totally Suing America for Racial Pain and Suffering
I can't stop thinking about that white lesbian couple from Ohio who is suing the Chicago-area sperm bank that mixed up the goods and gave them black sperm instead of the white sperm they wanted. I'm kinda picturing them going for some Brad Pitt in his  Benj...

Love this story--it's sad that this is noteworthy. We should all be asking why fashion shows aren't more diverse. 
London Fashion Week featured runways with only black models and plus-size women—for the first time ever.

Day 15 After Chemotherapy and I'm Nearly Bald
Bless me Father for I am going bald. It's been 15 days since my last chemotherapy infusion to kill my triple negative breast cancer and I am giving in to the sin of vanity by covering up my hair loss. This morning I felt a little like Christian Bale's wig a...

There's No Easy Way to Tell the World I Have Breast Cancer (So Here Goes it)
Earlier tonight I was trying to help my 10-year-old with his homework. It didn't go so well. My body aches horribly, my brain is fuzzy, and when he moved his piece paper, I felt like I was going to vomit. In the next room, the news was on with updates about...
