    Return to Work

    Planning for after treatment
    Added Dec 26, 2010

    I’m amazed at what has happened since March 27, 2007, the day I was diagnosed. It has been a week short of 35-months since I was diagnosed. And May 11, 2007 was the last day I worked before my treatment began which means it’s been 33-months since I last worked.

    So, when I was offered a position managing a couple senior communities with my for…

    Cancer that is… Of course I’m being facetious but it never ceases to amaze me how it comes around again and again. I went in for a typical dermotolgy appointment this week. You know, things us 40 year olds do to see if there is a new miracle cream that will remove these wrinkles that have appeared on my face! Well, an interesting mole had …

    Whole body exams & sunscreen

    Planning for after treatment
    Added Aug 5, 2009

    I will continue with my whole body exams and will be more vigilant about sunscreens and staying out of the sun. I’m thankful that I live in Western Washington State where the sun is less intense during most of the year. However, I know that incidents of skin cancer are high in Washington—probably because people feel a false sense of security wh…

    The Mistake!

    Planning for after treatment
    Updated Jan 17, 2010

    After treatment I never dreamed that I would be hearing these words. I’m sorry there was a mistake made! A mistake? What kind of mistake. When they removed my breast it was supposed to have been preserved for the pathologist to exam to determine staging grade. It was not someone forgot about it. My breast was left out in the open container for a…

    Moving Forward After Treatment

    Planning for after treatment
    Added Jan 19, 2010

    I attended a really good session last week put on by the local Breast Cancer Centre of Hope, led by a nurse and a psychologist. One of the best things is just being with other people at the same stage as you – finished treatment, still feeling the side effects, wondering about getting back to a ‘normal’ life.

    I’ll summarize it here, from my p…

    Planning for after treatment
    Added Jan 12, 2010

    By the time I reach 25, I will have survived cancer at least twice. There is still some time until then, so we’ll just count the times I can confirm. After the second diagnosis, you have to think a lot about what you are going to do after treatment. Cancer can’t run your life forever. I’ve met a lot of people who let the cancer rule who they are…
