I started this blog when my reality shifted on the 5th November 2012, when I was diagnosed with Stage 1 Grade 3 Triple Negative Breast Cancer.
It was a planned strategy to make sense of the experience, to keep loved ones in the loop without constant repetition and to address the tsunami of fears that invaded unannounced.
I was yet again on the road less travelled with an aggressive rare cancer that defied the usual hormonal based post-chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I simply had fewer options.
I am in my recovery phase though all of those who have been threatened by cancer will know, the brittle truth of long term survival rates. I pray that I am one that can call this experience…done and dusted.
In the meantime, I write my ‘take’ on the world as I see it….renewed with a heightened sense of the gift of life and the importance of living a life of personal integrity.
