Awesome roundup as always Marie! I appreciate knowing what’s going on in blogland especially when thecplatforjs aren’t connected – WordPress, Blogger, etc. and my email is backed up so far to 118,000 so a new email address is going to have to be created for important appointments, stuff I need to read and for people. My inbox had not ever been so full up until four years of metastatic diagnosis are behind me. Marketing for breast cancer seems to be at an all time high. Even from important organizations from which I want to hear but I have to slog through too much spam to get to the messages I want. Anyone else got this problem too? How do you handle it? Filters? Email addresses?

Another wonderful bunch of blog posts to read, Marie. Thank you so much for including me!
:Lovely to see you blogging again Julia x
This is a wonderful resource! I am a fairly new blogger and will follow your suggestion by leaving my details below. My blog is called “Finding A Way” and is about living with cancer and living well. Last week I wrote about patient rights and raising the bar. There is so much we all can learn from one another by sharing our writing. In addition to learning from one another, I find that I always learn so much about myself when I write. Thank you for your consideration.
Hi — Just thought I’d share a post from my blog this week on “Rebuilding a Life” after finishing surgeries, chemo, and radiation, and preparing for life with AIs: https://fuckcancer.home.blog/2019/02/28/rebuilding-a-life/
Hi Janet, thanks for sharing this with us. I’ll give it a shoutout in next week’s round-up,, Wishing you all the best with your recovery.
Thanks so much, Marie! Really enjoy your blog!
