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 the California fires burn, Ilene encounters a startled mama deer and words tumble into poetry.

A neighbor’s death prompts thoughts from Kristie on the nature of dying. 

Episode 11 of Terri’s podcast has landed and it’s all about decorative and restorative tattoos for breast cancer patients. Terri has also posted a super piece on learning to trust your body after breast cancer and breast reconstruction. 

An update from Maureen.

A faith-filled post from Connie. 

Lots of new poetry on Surviving Breast Cancer. 

A mid-summer update from Siobhan. 

I loved reading Carolyn’s post exploring the need to see patients for the persons they are and what they can bring to healthcare beyond their disease label. 

Finally this week, I was so deeply moved by Abigail’s account of traveling to New York for a memorial for Emily Garnett, among others lost to MBC. As always Abigail’s writing gets to the heart of things. I’d like to leave you with this quote from her post.

Those of us who know this experience and how important it is to LIVE, we connect differently. We connect deeply and we connect in a way that is meaningful forever.

Until next week, 

Yours with much love always,

Marie xxx
