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 noticed a very informative and helpful theme running through your blogs this week. Liza has helpfully curated tweets from a talk on the important topic of disparities in cancer care. Dr Deanna Attai shares the latest research and best practice on axillary surgery for early stage breast cancer. Inspired by reading Siddhartha Mukherjee’s The Gene: An Intimate HistoryKatie writes about genetics in her latest blog. And finally, are you confused by the latest study on breast cancer over-diagnosis? Then read Dr Elaine Schattner to help you understand the findings better.

Over the years of reading Catherine‘s blog, I have come to admire greatly her incredible gift for storytelling. She has a special gift of making even the most mundane occurrence into a memorable story. Now Catherine is asking you to tell her a story.. and it’s a very particular and unique story she is looking for. Please read her blog to learn more and share your story.

Carrie celebrates a special birthday.

Rebecca raises an interesting question about the nature of your relationship with your medical team.

An informative and enlightening blog by Terri on the apprehension and fear experienced by many women undergoing breast reconstruction.

A tough read this week for many of us who follow Mandi‘s blog.

Wendi goes back in time to a darker period in her life.

I found Nancy’s post on affirmations very inspiring this week.

Finally this week, I’ve lost track of the number of times I have tried to sum up Elizabeth‘s writing in one or two sentences – her thoughtful posts are always so richly layered, they defy a quick summary. This week, I find myself at a loss again as she writes about the LGBTQ community and feminism – all I can say is go read.

Until next week,

Yours with love
