Packing it In

Hey Mets Sisters, Do you ever wake up feeling crappy and wish you had taken advantage of the previous day? I have. More and more I find that any day where I feel good, the weather is cooperating, my family is home, or I have plans that don’t include cancer appointments is a good day.

Hey Mets Sisters…

Hey Mets Sisters, I’ve been composing this letter in my head for so long now. I see so many of you struggling. I can feel the fear in your posts, the desperation to find something to change the course of your metastatic breast cancer. I want that for you. I want you to live long,

    Keep on keeping on

    More and more the people I meet don’t know that I have cancer. I don’t look sick. I work, I grocery shop, I do the things people do. But I also fight cancer. I think about it multiple times a day.  I feel a pain in my hip and wonder if it is from bone
