Weekly Round-Up: The International Women’s Day Edition


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.

Happy International Women’s Day to the most courageous, fearless and wonderful women I know!

In this week’s round-up, Liza Bernstein shares her thoughts on cancer and identity in an article published in Cancer Today.

In a post that resonates with me deeply, Nancy marks 12 years since her Mom passed away.

Another post that resonated with me on a visceral level this week was Susan Rahn‘s powerful one on the right to die.

A timely post from Nancy Seibel on how we each have the power to stop the spread of worry and fear.

A wonderfully eclectic mix of original writing and curated pieces from Ilene this week.

In her latest post, Terri answers the question of whether sensation can be restored to the breast after mastectomy.

Megsie lists the many ways chemo has changed her.

Practical nutritional tips and advice from Cathy.

More practical tips – this time from Abigail on how to help someone with cancer.

Connie‘s latest post is about dealing with the unexpected changes in our lives, the plans that didn’t work out the way we envisioned.

Finally this week, I leave you with one more thought for this day.

May today be a day to recognize those women in your life who support and encourage you in good times and in bad – and may we continue to encircle each other in this community with kindness, compassion and support.


Until next week,

Yours with much love always,
