Go Commando!
I’m going commando today. Last week, on the five-year anniversary of my excisional
biopsy, I announced I’d lost my Big Girl Panties and was on the verge of an

I’ve already had one cry. It wa...

Big Girl Panties and an Ugly Cry
I lost my big girl panties and I’m on the verge of an ugly
cry. For whatever reason, I am struggling and have been struggling
for the past few weeks.  May is the start of my “cancerversary” season. In other words, the “For whatever reason” is really “Becaus...

A Little "Just to Be Sure" Scanxiety
There have been so many times in the past few months that I’ve
composed blogs in my head and thought – I should really write that down. And each

of writing out whatever was in my ...

Sometimes It’s Just Sadness
My grandfather died yesterday morning. Bumpy was 92. Almost 92 ½. He lived a “good life.” He was

be good news but I made no real assumptions. “I have breast cancer,” she said. There were n...

Even Superwoman Needs to Feel all the Feels
Today actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus announced that she has
been diagnosed with breast cancer. As a woman just over four years out from my own diagnosis
day, I am filled with only empathy, love and light for Ms. Louis-Dreyfus. I don’t

I Quit.
For the past few months, my inside voice has been saying, “I
can’t even.” The decline and death of handfuls of friends to cancer and the sad
and infuriating realities of current events in our country and beyond have made
me want to (in the words of my child...

I Quit.

Radiology & Patient-Centricity
Patient-centricity in healthcare has become a buzz word. But
what does it really mean? Patients, caregivers, advocates, health practitioners and
providers alike seem to agree that the term references designing a system or

“What Exactly Are You Doing?”
After four years in the social media cancer community, I
finally felt the sting of an antagonistic, non-productive comment. But, as with
most things social, it certainly got me thinking. Last week, along with 40 other breast cancer advocates, I attended
