Breast Cancer? But Doctor....I hate pink!
"Just"

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...

Time Passes…

When my son was home from college, we watched the "Up" series - 7 Up to 56 Up, one per night. It's a fantastic documentary series, but it made me realize how impossible it would be to capture what has happened to any individual in 7 years. If I'd been in this series,...

Good-bye 2014, Hello 2015

It is the last day of 2014.  It has been an interesting year for me - one of incredibly good news, and yet also one of transition.  In some ways, I think it is as difficult to stand at the precipice of death as it is to stand safely a few steps ...

Thanksgiving Cancer Style

I used to be a foodie.  I cooked "gourmet" as it was called then.  Fresh everything, from scratch.  I  grew my own herbs, shopped farmers markets, had boxes from local farmers delivered to my house weekly with unknown goodies in them.  I was the first to find a weird and unknown vegetable and figure...

Glioma…

Michael Davis' tumor I considered blogging about Brittany Maynard and her compelling right to die story, but I could not bring myself to do it.  I believe that this is each person's decision, and I really have no business weighing in.  We all kno...

Whew…..We Survived Pink October. On to November!

My goal for pink October was one long post, detailing how egregious the marketing has become.  I have had several people say that seeing it laid out that way opened their eyes.  I do realize it was difficult to read and I apologize, but I do think it...
