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.
Jo shares the story behind what led her to create her superb RED FLAG signs & symptoms of MBC inforgraphics.
Debbie, a mother of a breast cancer survivor who has lost loved ones to the disease explains in Cure why the phrase “living with cancer” doesn’t make sense, because there is no escape from it after diagnosis.
Nancy writes this week about an unexpected, birthday-related grief trigger.
While Jennifer shares information on screening mammograms in her latest post, Siobhan shares new information on European guidelines on breast cancer screening.
Sending loving thoughts Abigail‘s way as she heads back into chemo.
I smiled big at Carolyn‘s take on bucket lists in her latest post:
A Bucket List is merely a fancy-schmancy To Do list with major deadline pressure, created by people who probably had good reasons for not already doing what they say they wanted to.
Maxine writes a letter to her “health-challenged self” for Advanced Breast Cancer blog.
Connie recounts another online dating experience.
Lovely post from Barbara on the deep joy of finding home.
Terri provides a helpful a list of what she recommends packing when traveling for DIEP flap breast reconstruction.
Finally this week, I loved Sarah‘s “100 things I love” post based on a suggestion from Tanya Shadrick
What a wonderful idea – I just think I might follow suit and write my own list too!
Until next week,
Yours with much love always
Thank you dear Marie for this week’s Roundup – what an amazing range of topics, as always! – and for including my post on why I don’t have a Bucket List (despite the widespread assumption out there that a life-altering diagnosis *should* make me determined to use such a list to “live life to the fullest” from now on). The reader responses are so interesting – because I mentioned travel as something that’s no longer on any list of mine, it seemed to have sparked a wave of nostalgic comments about favourite faraway vacations in their past… 😉

I loved your post Carolyn – so refreshing not to feel obligated to create a Bucket List!
