Well, crack the imaginary bottle of champagne, that’s the end of my radiation. For the past two weeks, my chest has been getting radiated. Of course, it will continue to be ‘radiated’ for another couple weeks as the treatment has its impact, but at least I won’t need to go to the hospital and lay on the table… Read More

Hello hello hello and hello! Okay, enough of that. I think I’ll do that thing where I blog and pretend no one is watching. Dance like no one’s watching – except, I’ll write.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer a few days after my one year wedding anniversary. That was a shocker. After three years NED, cancer reappeared and pushed me to stage four.
