Weekly Round Up: Mother’s Day Part 2 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.

The lovely Jo updates on us her treatment progress and what she has been doing since January. And the equally lovely Catherine also shares her latest doings and medical updates.

While Nancy reflects on how she is reminded every now and then, about the magnitude of a cancer diagnosis  – and it’s lasting side effects – Elizabeth writes of a recent unexpected health issues.  See also Stephanie‘s latest post on finishing treatment, or in other words- what we all assume is the end of the tale, but isn’t.

Katy reflects back on seven years since her breast cancer diagnosis.

Elaine gets busy debunking the vanishing breast cancer myth in her latest Forbes article.

Amy shares hereditary cancer news for May.

The social media pro in me winced in sympathy with Britt‘s recounting of a her recent social media gaffe.

Did you know you’ll be getting a new belly button if you choose to have DIEP flap breast reconstruction after a mastectomy? Terri reports on a study with more details of the procedure.

Dr Attai reports back from the recent American Society of Breast Surgeons annual meeting which took place April 26-30th in Las Vegas.

Finally this week, while we celebrated Mother’s Day in Ireland and the UK last month, the rest of the world catches up today.  I leave you with thoughts  from Grace on Mother’s Day without her Mom – and a charming story written by Rebecca in honor of her own beloved mama – and the sweetest picture too.



Until next week,

Yours with love
