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.

As we near the end of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Martha writes about how to turn breast cancer awareness into actions that can improve your life and those of people you love.

While Nancy Stordahl shares some must-know facts about metastatic breast cancer (MBC) in her latest post, Abigail, Katie, Johanna and Ilene write honest raw accounts of the everyday reality of living with MBC. 

Terri shares her recent experience of speaking about breast reconstruction at Microsoft. 

A post from Sheri on learning to conquer life’s disruptors. 

An update from JoAnn on what’s been happening in her world. 

A look at breast cancer disparities in Lisa‘s latest post. 

A post from Barbara Jacoby on finding the right oncologist for your cancer treatment. 

A warm welcome back to the blogosphere to Stacey.

A recipe for cauliflower korma at Ticking Off Breast Cancer

Advice from Nancy Seibel on how being kind to others is some of the best self-care. 

Dr Attai shares a link to the newly published paper –  “A History of #BCSM and Insights for Patient-Centered Online Interaction and Engagement”

A delightfully glistening and uplifting post from Philippa.

A generous offer from Chris to help those who are in need in the cancer community. 

With more of us now speaking at virtual events, Sue‘s post on the pros and cons of virtual conferences is well worth a read. I particularly liked her advice to conference organisers to check in with participants who are sharing personal stories. 

Finally this week, introducing a new blog to the round-up. Colleen writes about being an Aboriginal mum with inoperable cancer. Do take some time to check out her writing. 

Until next week,

Yours with much love always
