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 enter the final week of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Leigh Pate is sharing a glimpse of life and common frustrations of many patients who are #LivingwithLobularBreastCancer, 

Barbara writes about what happens after the pink ribbon is retired for another year, Abgail continues her highly informative and thought-provoking series of BCAM posts,  Lisa takes issue with the sexualization of breast cancer awareness activities and Jo has created two infographics which alert us to the red flags of secondary breast cancer – one of which relates to lobular breast cancer.  If you haven’t already come across them, please check them out and share them on your social channels. 

Relationships and intimacy while living with MBC is the theme of the latest podcast from OurMBCLife.

Good tips as always from Cathy on not fearing food and making good nutritional choices. 
Connie tells a lovely story of support from her church in such evocative and warm detail this week. 
Finally this week, Martha looks back on the happy memories she made this summer and how she uses them as strength in the face of cancer. “Sometimes, when we’re lucky, the scale tips toward the good,” she writes.

Yours with much love always,
