I’ve decided to do a blog about my life right now, because I am about to head into major surgery, and want to keep family and friends updated on my progress in coming months. I’ve been meaning to start a blog around my art, so this has given me the impetus to actually get one up and running.
I have also been appreciative in reading other women’s experiences with breast cancer and its treatment on breast cancer blogs and forums. So I thought I should return the favour, in case reading about my journey helps someone else. I have found it comforting to hear first hand from others who have had similar experiences, invariably with a happy outcome, albeit with a few twists and turns along the way!
And thereafter, well, I’ll just take it from there. Maybe I’ll use this blog to update on my art progress. For the moment, you get to share my journey as my old breasts become new ones (and no, I don’t plan on posting any up close and personal breast photos!)
Stay tuned …..
FYI for those travelling a similar path – the blogs and forums that have been most helpful to me are:
