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.

It’s Mother’s Day here in Ireland and the UK and Yvonne shares a lovely memory to mark the day.

Rod shares the inspiring and informative story of Judy, a patient who was successfully treated for breast cancer with Tumor-Infiltrating Lymphocytes(TILs).

Abigail explores the question of what happens when you’ve run out of treatment options as a metastatic cancer patient?

Jennifer investigates whether radiation is a good choice for DCSI patients.

In a Cure post that will be familiar to many of us, Jessica shares some of the insensitive comments she and others have received about our cancer diagnosis.

Dee reports from the SGO 2022 Annual Meeting on disparities and equity research across GYN cancers.

Megan Claire writes this week on the complexities of grief and joy. 

A post from Cathy on choosing intentionally to eat cake.

Thoughts from Connie on writing your own story. 

Barbara‘s latest post is about choosing to walk the walk with breast cancer patients, not just talking the talk. 

Sarah‘s list of 100 things she loves has reached a delightful #8 with bluebells.

Finally this week, for those who are celebrating Mother’s Day, have a lovely day, and for those who know friends and loved ones who may struggle, an acknowledgment of their loss would be a great kindness.

Send a text, write an email, or call them to let them know you are thinking of them. Validation, compassion, and kindness are among the most precious gifts we can give today.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always
