Weekly Round-Up: Pinktober Begins

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 that I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget that if you have written a post that you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

In the third of Shine Cancer Support‘s podcast series about menopause after cancer, Dr. Jane Davis, a GP and women’s health specialist, talks about managing menopause when you can’t take HRT. 

Nancy updates a previous post she wrote on 10 things that are wrong with the pink ribbon.

Lisa Laudico, who created Our MBC Life, died on Aug. 6, 2022, from MBC. In the latest podcast episode, Lisa’s friends, family, and colleagues remember her amazing life and celebrate the many ways she fostered connection, resilience, and hope in the MBC community.

A post from Barbara on living by the golden rule of truth always.

Sue writes about leaving Twitter as it is no longer a safe space to speak our truth. Sadly I have to agree with her and it dismays me to see what was once a wonderful place to meet like-minded travelers on this journey, become a bullying unsafe platform.

Dee shares a guest post by Molly Lindquist about Manta Cares which offers helpful information, planners and coaching for cancer survivors and their caregivers.  

Terri reflects on the the power of education, connections, and giving.

 Jennifer writes about completing cancer treatment and how it is not the end of the road.  

A post from Abigail on her healing practice of writing.

Finally this week, we close out the second week of ‘Pinktober’ with a reminder from Rod not to leave men out of the breast cancer awareness narrative.

Until next week,

Yours with much love always
