Breast Cancer? But Doctor....I hate pink!
Review: Suburban Turban, and a Contest

SUBURBAN TURBAN I tried to tuck my hair up.. Now that you have saved some bangs using the Shebangz system, you need headwear. When you think of hats, you think of the Queen of England, amirite?  Okay, maybe you are younger - so Kate Middleton...

Review: Shebangz, and a contest

SHEBANGZ (I can't hear the phrase "She bangs" without thinking of William Hung from American Idol, can you?) Like listening to Hung, losing your hair is truly every woman's nightmare, more so than most any other aspect of chemotherapy.  Being bald hits us in a primal place, one that you don't have to be vain to...

Cite Your Sources!

Does my title bring back horrible memories of high school, when the teacher wrote "cite your sources" in big red pen on your page? Well, he or she was right. I saw this graphic on my facebook timeline.  I sighed. It's getting worse. THIS IS NOT OK! First of all, the commonly used (and incorrect) statistic is 30%....

I've been working on a post for about a month now.  I cannot for the life of me get what I want to say out of my head and through my fingers.  I don't think I can even blame that on chemo brain, as much as I'd like to.  Just sort of this blah,...

Full Circle, Squished Breasts

Unbelievably, at my last oncology appointment, my doctor ordered a mammogram - for me.   He said, "I think we've been neglecting your routine care."Routine care?   Me and routine care? Does not compute.In 2009, when I was diagnosed, I only had my diseased breast removed, keeping my other one as a souvenir. With...

Sole Story

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

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

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

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 ...
