Before I get to the meat of today’s post, there are a few tidbits to share with you today. First and foremost, I encourage you to go visit Andrea (PunkRockMommy) today if you haven’t yet. She’s doing some beautiful writing, and some beautiful things as she enters hospice. We love you, Andrea!
Susan Reynolds is healing after her recent surgery, although she’s not sure she’d do reconstruction again. We wish you quick and easy healing, Susan.
Here’s an interesting look at the value of communication when a family member is diagnosed with cancer.
Our friend Talking Budgie let us know about a sad passing of one of our Australian sisters last night. In her words:
One of Australia’s most wonderful breast cancer advocates and fundraisers passed away over the weekend. Jane McGrath set up a foundation which notably raised money for the placement of breast care nurses in rural and regional Australia – ensuring the care of those in remote locations.
I thought she should be acknowledged here. She did so much for breast cancer awareness in Australia. http://www.mcgrathfoundation.com
And now, a bit of fun news. We have several friends of MWC who would like to write guest posts for us. First up is an expert on helping children who have parents with cancer. Are there any burning questions that you’d like to ask her? If so, leave them here and we’ll conduct and publish a full interview next week. We also have interest from a chemo nurse willing to talk about the process or the emotions from her perspective … any questions for her? And lastly, I’d like to open up the floor to any visitors here who have questions for the moms. Do you want to know more about living with metastatic cancer? What about life after earlier stage cancer is treated and declared in remission? What’s remission all about, anyway? Leave your questions here and we’ll set up some posts!
