Weekly Round Up


Time 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.

I’ve been longing to hear more about Philippa‘s new African adventure and this week she updates us with her first impressions.

Wonderfully evocative and lyrical post by Elizabeth on preservation.

Wendi writes of her aversion to certain single word edicts.

Audrey never fails to write so beautifully on the topics of kindness and compassion in healthcare and this week is no exception.

In a series of posts on cancer recurrence, Maureen asks this week how we would know if our cancer had come back.

A detailed report by Allie on her latest surgery, necessitated by an incidental finding following breast cancer screening.

Kimberly takes up the 15 Random Things blogging challenge set by Nancy.

Nicole shares 18 great sources of information, support and advocacy in the breast cancer community on her blog.

A very interesting post from Rebecca on residency training and the impact on the patient. It’s one I shall share with my Medical Educator colleagues for sure.

A warm welcome back to Elissa  back in the blogging saddle again.

Caroline highlights research on the role of social media in helping breast cancer patients.

Finally this week, my deepest sympathies go out to Laurie and Nancy on the loss of their fathers recently.

Until next week,

Yours with love
