The first time updated 4/27

Well, I’ve never done this before and fear it will be a total mess but here goes. This is my blog. I am a 40 year old wife, mother, singer, supervisor and breast cancer survivor. The kids are YOUNG, 7 and 3. I’ve officially been in remission for just over a year and now I’m trying to figure out what the rest of my life is supposed to be. I suspect that I might not be the only person out here that’s trying to figure out their life so I figured I’d try a blog. I have absolutely no idea where this is going to go but I hope you’ll come with me.

Also, I’ve been warned that I have to add a disclaimer. I am not a doctor of any sort. I am not a nurse or a nutritionist or a radiologist or a gynecologist or a hemotologist or a psychologist or any of the other ist’s we’ve all dealt with. This is my personal blog where I express my own thoughts, feelings and opinions. I do not intend to be disrespectful or offensive to anyone but this is my site. I have been known to have some strong opinions and I do not think I’ll be parsing them here. Feel free to call me on it but I hope you will also respect that we all have differing opinions on many, many things.

All that being said I really hope that this turns into a site that is helpful to those who are reading it as well as to she who is writing it. Peace 🙂

I’ve had some feedback from people who have been reading the blog who have never been on a blog before and are not quite sure what to do. If you want to respond to anything on the blog you can just click on the comments section and you are sending a message that will be posted right there. You can also respond to other peoples comments as well. There is nothing you’re going to do that messes anything up. I’m still learning how to develop this one so I appreciate how you’re feeling. I say we just walk through this together. Thanks for reading.

  1. I am a 41 year old breast cancer survivor. Tomorrow – 4/16/08 is three and a half years. I enjoyed reading your blog. You wrote about things that I have said and other’s, not in the club, just give me a look.
    Keep up the blogging!

  2. I forgot to send you anniversary greetings!!! Keep going!!

  3. I just realized I discovered my lump two years ago this month(april). I think my mastectomy was July 2006. Such a blurr all of it and the uncertainty, shock and confusion. But I have to say, now I’m focused on publishing my Good Life Christian paper (www.thegoodlifepaper.com)and trying to help others. I’m holding a birthday/fundraiser to benefit a family who lost everything in a Dec.’07 fire plus two of their 4 children. I try not to think too much about myself and happy I have the strength and health right now to do all I have to do to keep publishing this paper. Happy I’m turning 58 yr. YOUNG! I think this site will be very beneficial to other “sisters” who’ve gone thru this scary ordeal. Thank you for thinking of it. Blessings to all of you and to the new comers who read this as well!

  5. Happy to have you Meg! I want to get multiple perspective and choices out there for people to see.

  6. Hi, You have a truly lovely blog – I’ve really enjoyed the posts I’ve read…I think I could curl up with a cup of coffee and read the whole thing “cover to cover”!

    I am wondering if you can get my website under your “shopping” tab.

    Here is the link:
    http://www.servenation.com/cards/3139

    This site is harnessing your everyday buying power to provide free mammograms for women who could not otherwise afford them. I have such a vision for this – what if the budget of every American household were donating even 1% toward this cause!

    If you like, I can also send you a nifty button to go on the page. Email me at ljacobs@psfc.com.

    (And for all of you bloggers reading this, I’d love to hear from you too!)

  7. I would like to know what to avoid after having cervical cancer ,may the good lord bless you all.
    i am from St. lucia in the Carribbean West Indies.

    thanks in advance

  8. I am not a doctor but I would suggest you avoid hormones and soy. That and make sure you see your doctor on a regular basis. Good luck!

  9. Sorry I’m a few days late, but…

    HAPPY SIX MONTH BLOG-IVERSARY!!!

    Here’s to many more.

    Love,
    me

  10. Thanks for your support on my blog! I appreciate you reading and your encouragement…really.

    Yes, my endo is not good for me…I need to make an appt with a new one (I have a recommendation, just need to do it). In thyroid cancer, you don’t have an oncologist but instead an endocrinologist manages your cancer.

    Get this: my endo charges $3 for a copy of your lab results! I’ve paid it each time to keep my own file. I have definitely found with cancer, you’ve got to take charge of your own health and ask the questions.
