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.

Dr Attai reports on an abstract presented at last week’s virtual meeting of the American Society of Clinical Oncology focused on whether or not there is a benefit to surgery for the primary breast tumor in patients with metastatic, or Stage IV, breast cancer.

Julia has filmed a series of video reviews of the book “The Art of Possibility” by Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander. You can catch the latest video on her website.

Is age a factor in breast reconstruction? Terri answers the question in her latest post.

Nancy Seibel writes this week about how to find purpose and meaning in these uncertain times.

A sobering look at the world of cancer diagnosis during Covid times by Chris.

Connie continues to navigate her life through “The Gap–a period between the Ending of my life as I knew it and the Beginning that awaits.”

Dee reviews a new book for caregivers.

A video message from Megsie on the issue of racism – a theme also taken up by Terri WinghamCarolyn and Yvonne in recent posts.

Cathy shares three reasons why we may lose our commitment to nutrition and fitness in her latest post.

An update from Abigail on her treatment – and it’s good news this month.

Finally this week, because the words meant so much to me, i want to finish by sharing these lines from Ilene‘s blog – words to see us through another week:

Remember I love you all by the way. There’s not enough being shared but a dearth of it to cover and protect every single living creature. I’m sincere – you have someone who loves you as long as I breathe. And life is all you need so live it knowing you are loved.

Until next week,

Stay safe and be kind to one another

Yours with much love always,
