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.

Veteran’s Day, which was marked last  Monday, prompts Connie to share memories of her father’s service day in the war and to ponder the nature of courage.

A provocatively-titled post from Ilene this week, “The history of Metastatic Cancer: written by the losers” – a wonderful riposte to Churchill’s ‘History is written by the victors’ statement.

The documentation of metastatic breast cancer is written by those of us who lose our lives to the disease. No one gets to write the end of our story with “she lived happily ever after” – but we aren’t losers.

Barbara is in a holiday-shopping mood this week.

This week Yvonne remembers her husband who died six years ago this month.

Abigail updates us on her progress with Piqray.

Nancy Seibel shares a gratitude exercise.

In Shine Cancer Support‘s latest post, blog editor Caroline demystifies some of the wackiest ‘cures’ for cancer.

Sarah shares some good news this week.

In her latest post, Dee describes what a PARP inhibitor is, and provides all the FDA approval information and a few articles that compare the different types.

A guest post on Ticking Off  Cancer with some simple, yet important, advice for carers.

Finally this week, I leave you with a writing prompt. You may like to write about it on your own blog, or simply leave a comment below.
