Weekly Round-Up

Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve rad 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.

This week, Terri shares the storyof three friends “in vastly separate places in their lives, uniquely connected through the breast cancer experience, and a narrative of a breast reconstruction nipple tattoo artistry experience.”

Lisa updates us on the latest research on immunotherapy for treating breast cancer.

Maureen notches up cycle 3 of her latest chemo.

Happy anniversary to Let Life Happen which started publishing 14 years ago.

Read about Lorelei Colbert, who was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer at 28 and used her experience to launch the “Chemo to Kindness” challenge that inspired others around the world to do acts of good.

The team at Shine Cancer Support tackle cancer scammers and scams in their latest podcast episode. 

“You’ve likely heard of FOMO (the “fear of missing out”),” writes Carolyn this week, but have you come across the term “JOMO – the joy of missing out”? Carolyn, in her thoughtful way extols the benefits of living in a state of JOMO in her latest post. 

Meanwhile joy of a different kind is being celebrated by Julia, who has claimed the word as her word for 2022. “We live in a world full of complexity; of happiness and heartbreak but amidst all this we can have moments of deep joy,” she writes.

By the way I am loving hearing about the focus words some of you are choosing for 2022. Jennifer also shares the third of her 3 words in her latest post. 

Finally this week, and continuting the joy motif, a quote from the wonderful Thich Nhat Hahn, who left this earthly life on Friday, leaving behind a legacy of gentle teachings and a reminder that joy is always present when we look for it. 

Until next week,

May you find some joy-filled moments in the days ahead

Yours with much love always
