Weekly Round Up: The Easter Edition


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.

Do you sometimes blame yourself for getting cancer? asks Nancy

If  you’ve been diagnosed with any serious illness, you probably have asked, why me? You might’ve wondered if something you did or did not do was partly to blame for your predicament. The blame game is pointless, unhelpful and potentially harmful. So, stop blaming yourself.

Uzma extols the joys of sleeping in your own bed after a hospital stay.

Which patients will be helped by immune cancer drugs? Elaine shares information on a test that might tell you.

A super helpful post by Stephanie on not getting stuck in our grief, and how to move on after a traumatic life event.

Becky, in a post I feel sure many will identify with, writes of feeling paradoxical about her future.

Thoughtful post by Maureen on marking the passing of time.

Catherine shares a story about her memories of the first road trip in Europe she took with Zsolt.

Finally this week, I am, like many of you, terribly saddened by the death of Mandi Hudson.  Here is her last poignant blog written on vacation just before she died. And we’re more than sad, we’re angry, as both Beth and Ann Marie Otis write in their blogs. To quote Ann Marie:

Today I sit and cry at the death of a friend again. It does not get easier ever it gets worse. I want more for them for their families and for all my stage 4 friends living with this illness and dying for a cure.download (21).jpg

Until next week,

Yours with love
