Weekly Round-Up

My Post Copy 14 (9)

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.

Peer to peer healthcare – patients sharing information with each other – is one of the most exciting things I’ve seen happen online since I first stepped into this space 15 years ago. Terri‘s latest post – patients sharing tips on finding a breast reconstruction surgeon – wonderfully shows this model in action.

Sometimes I feel that Karin is writing directly to me (a sign of a gifted writer!). Her latest post on faking it really hit home for me this week.

I’ve been so caught up in completing my A to Z posts that I totally missed #WorldBookDay last week. Luckily Nancy didn’t – check out her list of recommended cancer books.

Beth is mourning the loss of a beloved pet.

Sarah is on her fourth chemo round  – hope you can feel we are counting down with you Sarah x

Janet is feeling her way slowly back to normal.

Superb list of do’s and don’ts from Abigail aimed at how doctors should communicate with patients.

Delightful story and question from Connie this week – “who are the people in your path who you’ve made unexpected friendships with that are like hidden treasures?”

Love that JoAnn is diligently working her way through the blogging A toZ challenge too.

Can you ignore the siren call of snacks? Another sit up and take notice post from Cathy on the health impact of snacking.

Becky‘s latest post reflects on the differences between the US and the Canadian healthcare systems.

Finally this week, a writing prompt for those who are in need of some inspiration.
