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.

As Katy awaits the results of a biopsy on a painful lump in the exact same location as her previous two cancers, she writes of how it feels to live perpetually within the shadow of cancer –  “how simultaneously impossible and easy it is to live your life in a normal fashion with a loaded and cocked gun perpetually at your head.” Interestingly, in a post that echoes Katy, Becky writes about how she finds herself no longer sharing her latest health worries.

Elizabeth shares a reminder on the wisdom of changing one thing at a time when it comes to adopting new strategies for better mental and physical health.

Another thoughtful post this week by Stephanie on acceptance and gratitude. See also Terri’s latest post on A Fresh Chapter.

What should you take to chemo? Nancy shares some helpful advice in her latest blog.

The reality of male breast cancer laid bare at The Underbelly. 

Dr Oliver Minton, a Consultant in palliative medicine with an academic interest in the long term effects of cancer treatment shares his clinical perspective on cancer surviorship.

Finally this week, I feel so grateful that Catherine continues to find the energy to keep us updated with her daily life.  Check out her latest post filled with happy memories and things to look forward to.

Until next week,

Yours with love
