My Breast Cancer Story
I really enjoyed the experience of live streaming a talk on my experience of breast cancer for the GE Healthcare Breast Cancer Mosaic. The video is a bit grainy and there were a few technical hiccups but you can hear me what I am saying – and that’s the main thing.
In the video I talk about the impact of a breast cancer diagnosis on the fertility of younger women, and how there is only a brief window of opportunity in which she can preserve her reproductive future before starting treatment.
I talk also about the post-treatment limbo we may find ourselves in after cancer treatment ends, and I suggest some strategies to help you cope at this time.
Finally, I hope I have conveyed how important telling our stories are. Stories can heal our wounded places, create community and understanding, and make us feel less alone. I do hope you enjoy the video and I would love to hear your thoughts about the topics I raise in it. Thanks for watching.
I just watched the video of your marvelous talk, your breast cancer story. you did such a wonderful job! I loved seeing and hearing you – your advocacy, your passion, and your honesty shined through in such a brilliant manner. thank you – and congratulations!
much love and light,
You did wonderfully! It was so good to watch and follow along. As for the grain in the video (firstly, I was far too focused on your story to worry about that stuff) – I can imagine in 10 years from now, people will be like, “Remember when online streaming videos were so grainy? How did we cope?!” I guess we cope by having very worthwhile ideas to share.
Well done! ~Catherine
Thank you all so much for your support – I made a point of thanking you on the video at the outset because with your friendship and support my world is a much richer place.
Was wondering if I would be able to see this! Great job and thank you for sharing!
