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 wonder how many bloggers can say they are part of a generation of bloggers? I am guessing not that many so it’s really fun to see Elizabeth‘s post on three generations of bloggers in her family.

Great question from Chris this week, why don’t large cancer charities do more to support the work of patients?

Wonderful to hear how much Terri’s Breast Reconstruction Facebook Group has grown – a much needed and valued resource.

More WEGO Health Nominees this week it’s Beth‘s turn. You can endorse her nomination here. 

Becky is back with an update in her latest post.

A poignant poem from Susan on loving someone with metastatic cancer.

Tracy reflects back on seven years since her diagnosis of HER2+++ breast cancer..

A thoughtful question from Connie this week –  how can you be present for someone who needs you?

Lisa shares thoughts on regaining physical fitness in her latest blog.

I smiled when I read Sarah‘s blog on emojis -I guess I’ve been using 😉 wrong all these years too Sarah 😉

Barbara shares news of a special place called Camp Kesem which empowers college student leaders nationwide to create free, life-changing summer camps for children affected by a parent’s cancer.

A super helpful post from Nancy on managing side effects from Aromatase Inhibitors.

Liz writes about the reality of having to face up to another “new normal” in her latest blog.

I’m so delighted to see Julia take up my writing prompt from last week on her favorite place in nature.  For this week’s prompt, I’ve been inspired by the “cancer is a gift” trope – I know how much Nancy, in particular, loves this one (not!) But perhaps cancer has brought gifts into your life?  Or perhaps it’s been another life-altering event. Or again, maybe it’s a gift someone gave you that has meant the world to you. I’d love to learn more about your favorite gift.


I look forward to sharing your posts on this topic in next week’s roundup.

Yours with much love always
