Today is the last day of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and regardless of whether you are a breast cancer survivor or not, you are probably ready for the pink to be packed away until next year. The take away messages are worth repeating – “early detection saves lives,” and despite the fact that pink […]

Halloween was last night so it is appropriate to write about how scary it is to receive a breast cancer diagnosis. Cancer is scarier than any haunted house you’ve ever visited because haunted houses are not real; cancer is the real thing. When you ask a cancer survivor to describe how they felt when they […]

I walked in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure last Saturday, just like I have done for the past 25-plus years, but this time, I actually noticed something on the T-shirt  that made me take notice. The saying on the back of the shirt was “Proud to Be Your Inspiration.”  It really touched me, […]

Autumn is a very introspective time for me. In September I celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, followed by Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.  This time is known as the High Holidays in the Jewish religion. It’s a time for me to think about the past year and the coming year, and how […]

September 28, 2012

Monday, October 1, marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the PINK invasion?  Are you ready?  I’m not sure if I am, even after almost five years as a survivor. October and PINK always bring me anxiety ­– maybe because I am a survivor; maybe because when I had my biopsy in early November, my friend […]
