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.

Do you mark any of your cancerversaries and if so, how? I did up until my fifth cancerversary – Nancy Stordahl has reached her tenth and writes “Even before the pandemic, I was wondering what to do with this milestone. I feel like I should have something profound to say, but can’t say that I do. In fact, it feels sorta odd to even bring it up right now.”

A powerful post from Ilene on not making ignorant generalizations about “people like me.”

Dr Attai comments on a recent study published which addresses the use of screening mammography in older women.

Barbara shares tips on how to protect your medical records.

Sheri writes of the false allure of normalcy.

A guest post on Chris‘s blog on the positives of social media.

Abigail updates us on the experimental combination of Piqray (alpelisib) and Kisquali (ribociclib) she is currently taking.

Covid-themed posts this week from Dee, Carolyn, Britt, Megsie, Julia, Liz, Jana, and Nancy Seibel.

Karin continues to offer online support at this time. You’ll find details on her website.

How do you maintain your health after breast cancer? Terri shares how exercise works for her. As a companion piece, read Cathy on how not to lose your fitness edge as you age.

Finally this week, please join me in sending thoughts and prayers out to Connie, who lost her mother last Thursday.

Until next week,

Stay safe,

Yours with much love always,

Marie xxx
