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.

Rod writes this week about the incidence of breast cancer in younger women and the reality of living with metastatic breast cancer as a younger woman. 

That reality is also brought to life in METUP UK member Kit’s post “The Serial Killer Inside” and Ilene’s weeds as cancer metaphor poem. Ilene also wrote this week about her dislike of everyone telling her to stay positive and also the songs that have been the soundtrack of her life that really do keep her up when she’s feeling down. 

Kristie’s latest post is all about chemo-induced hair loss and the benefits of cold-capping. 

Make sure to check out THE MOST gorgeous family photos on Abigail’s blog. 

A guest post on Ticking Off Breast Cancer on keeping a sense of humour with cancer. 

Sending love and support to Megsie this week as she continues to struggle with racism – even in the cancer world. 

Sheri suggests ways to decrease fear and tribalism in her latest post.

This week Chris asks the question “can we ever solve cancer?”

Lisa writes about making choices about our medical care. 

A reflection from Audrey on languishing and acceptance.

Steve shares his “morning pages” routine in his latest post. 

Finally this week, I’m crowdsourcing thoughts for an article I am writing on the medical profession and Dr Google – I’d love to have your input to the discussion – click here to read and comment. 

Until next week,

Yours with much love always,
