After I was diagnosed I started searching the Internet. I was searching for information (so I thought) I wanted to read anything that would help me cope with my cancer. Instead I found lots of information that was helpful but very scary and overwhelming. Then I found Whymommy. This changed everything for me. I left a comment on her blog and with in hours she had e-mailed me back. I was a couple of weeks behind Susan in my recovery from my mastectomy. She helped me get through it. Gave me lots of encouraging words and lots of much needed advice. From her blog I met other woman who have cancer too. Stella, Sarah, Nicole, Judy and many many others. From these woman I have received many gifts. friendship, advice, support, and laughter. Now I am a part of Mothers With Cancer and I have met even more woman and received even more support.
After meeting Whymommy and some of the other blogging woman out there I decided that I wanted to start a blog. At first it was a way for me to keep my friends and family up to date on my recovery and cancer progress. It has turned into so much more. I have met so many people who are supporting me through my battle with cancer. I love being a part of this blogging community. I don’t know where I would be right now with out it. It has been My saving Grace.
