Sole Story

May 15, 2015

I spent the past few years thinking I had one perk - I wasn't going to get old.  Of course, the life I've lived would be a horror to most people, but being a silver lining kinda gal, I started imagining all the things I would avoid by dying: Falling and not being able to...

SXSW Part 2

May 2, 2015

One thing I wanted to do at SXSW was go to the Gaming Expo and visit Ryan Green, whose family was featured on one the Soul Pancake documentaries (as was I.)  Ryan is creating a video game based on his experiences with his toddler son, Joel, who tragic...

SXSW, Part 1

Apr 9, 2015

On March 15, along with David Kopp of Healthline, I moderated a core conversation at SXSW. Being selected to do this was a great honor, and it wouldn't have happened without you, my regular readers.  So I obviously want to share some of my experiences with you. What is SXSW? South by Southwest, or "South by"...

Semi Colon: Book Recommendations from the Bottom of my Pile

Apr 2, 2015

A sad fact about cancer is it took away one of my life's most pleasurable activities - reading.  I've been a reader since I was a little kid; some of my best days were spent outside, holding a book as big as me, sitting in the cool shade of a tree on ...

SXSW 2015

Mar 10, 2015

If you are not aware, in just a few days, I will be winging off to Texas to participate in the big interactive/film/music festival called South by Southwest. I will be moderating a core conversation, along with Healthline's VP, David Kopp.  We will be...

RIP Lisa Bonchek Adams

Mar 7, 2015

I've been gone all day today, volunteering at the regional Science Olympiad, an event I've been involved in for years.  I thought about cancer a lot today, recalling when I was a bald mom on my first chemo, whose child was a participant. As I relive...

Physical Fitness by the Decade

Feb 28, 2015

In elementary school, I was the last one picked for any team sport. Rightly so, embarrassing as the memory is.  I was short, skinny, wore glasses and was terrified of flying balls.  Consigned to the outfield during baseball games, I sorted through em...

The Road to Health Starts with Getting off your Rear

Feb 7, 2015

Do you see what that says? Yep, I'm still NED.  7 months since the last scan and still no cancer.  After all the torturous treatment of the past five years, I did the impossible.  Erm, I mean, my doctor and chemo nurses did the impossible. ...

Sign a Petition

Feb 1, 2015

I am still NED.  It has been 7 months that cancer has not reared its ugly tumor-shaped head and attacked my liver.  It now feels like maybe it never will again, that despite the odds, I am going to be one of the few metsters to beat this, thanks to t...

"Just"

Jan 24, 2015

The word "just" got me in trouble the other day. Deservedly.  I am bending over for my spanking now. Please be gentle. Somebody had sent me a link to an article about an extremely attractive women with DD breasts who had been diagnosed with the BRCA mutation at age 19.  By 27, she had made...
