Does it seem like we just started 2022? Or perhaps for you, 2022 was one of the longest years ever and you can’t wait to see it come to an end. Perspective depends on what you and I have going on in our lives, right? Regardless, here we are wrapping up 2022, which for most of us means looking back, looking forward, and doing a bit of reflecting as well. Are you glad or sad to say goodbye, 2022? I would love to know what’s been a highlight for you in 2022, as well as, what has been one of your greatest challenges. So, be sure to share down in the comments, if you want to.

Sandy Hook — 10 Years Later

It’s hard to believe ten years have passed since the December 14, 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. But here we are. Ten years ago, I thought that was it. That was finally the moment. I mean, if this country didn’t get its act together and DO something about trying to end gun violence after 20 six-and-seven-year-olds, along with six staff members, were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School, when would it? The gunman (I won’t repeat his name) fired 154 rounds in less than five minutes, claiming 26 lives. Ten years later, I’m still trying to remain hopeful that things ..read more

An audio of this post is available via my Free Resource Library. Last week, I read a terrific piece titled The Pressure of Survivorship by fellow blogger and Cancer Haver, @CancerCanuck, — that’s his Twitter handle. Even though this particular blogger is new to survivorship and I’ve been at for a while, I so related to his words. So much so, I’m writing this piece. ? Hopefully, you’ll relate to both our pieces. Double_Whammied, another fellow writer, friend, and Cancer Haver, replied to the above-mentioned piece/tweet I sent out and included the hashtag #ungratefulcancerpatient in her response ..read more

Breast Cancer Awareness Month’s Blind Spot
Nancy's Point

Yep. Breast Cancer Awareness Month has a blind spot alright. What am I talking about? Let me explain. For those of you who went through a driver’s education course way back when, or recently for that matter, did your instructor talk about that blind spot? Were you taught that you should turn your head to your left and actually look behind you before passing the car in front of you? I remember discussion about the blind spot during driver’s ed class quite well. Funny the things we can remember and the things we cannot, isn’t it? It can be startling when you’re driving down the freeway, getting ..read more

Celebrating 12 Years of Blogging with a Giveaway!

I’ve been blogging now for 12 years. Yep. 12 years! This also means, it’s been 12+ years since my breast cancer diagnosis. A decade plus two more years. That is a decent chunk of time, and this fact is not lost on me. Believe me, I fully realize how lucky I am to still be blogging, heck, to still be here, period. For some, being around 12+ years post diagnosis would be like winning the lottery. And yes, I am grateful. You bet I am. 12 years ago, I had no idea what I was doing regarding how to do breast cancer or how to write, much less maintain, a blog. Not that I now have everything figured o ..read more

A New Puppy Named Titus!

Sometimes, I don’t want to write about cancer or other serious stuff. Some days are for writing about and sharing about fun news. This is one of those days. And what could be more fun than sharing about a new puppy? If you’ve been reading my blog for awhile, you already know that my family is a wee bit pet obsessed. Maybe yours is too. Or not. (That’s okay too.) Beloved pets have been the topic of a fair number of blog posts. I listed a few at the end of this one should you be interested in reading one or two of them. Loving pets also means saying goodbye to them will be part of your life. Tha ..read more
