Weekly Round-Up: The Independence Day Edition

Blue Red Fireworks Independence Day Twitter PostTime 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 4th July weekend to our American friends.  4th July is Independence Day in the US and while Abigail writes of Independence Day during a pandemic, Connie sets forth on our own journey of independence, and Ilene‘s latest post is a clever twist on the theme of independence and MBC.

Independence. What that word means to somebody who has metastatic breast cancer is vastly different than what it means to somebody who is celebrating Independence Day in the United States on July 4th, 2020.

Wendi rounds up the worst cancer lessons for us in her latest post.

Detailed information from Siobhan on breast density and screening for breast cancer.

A guest post on Ticking Off Breast Cancer on identity crisis following a breast cancer diagnosis.

Nancy Seibel shares a personal tribute to Carl Reiner, who died this past week.

The third in Sheri’s series on not letting your pain go to waste is well worth reading.

Chris shares his reasons for working “outside the system” when it comes to supporting cancer patients.

Loved reading JoAnn’s post celebrating the good things about social media on Social Media Day which took place this last week.

Finally this week, covid-themed posts (because you know it hasn’t gone away yet!) posts from Britt, Yvonne, Audrey, Catherine, Terri, Tric, and Shine Cancer Support.

Until next week,

Stay safe. Stay connected.

Yours with much love always,
