Weekly Round Up: Cancer’s Legacy

girl_with_lassoTime for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

Liza (in a very welcome return to the blogosphere) and Beth write about cancer’s legacy of PTSD; while Ann Marie Otis enumerates the many ways in which cancer still affects her life.  Detrice has a cancer scare and  Stacey sums up the duality of living life after cancer when she writes “I am finding the realities of living a full life challenged by the realities of living a life within the realities of my life challenging”.

Yours with love
