Well. It’s always darkest before the dawn, isn’t it? I just found out that cnn.com published Margaret’s Health article today, and thousands of readers popped over here, for a total of over 10,000 hits. Yep, in one day. The day I published a picture of damaged lemons and reminded people to check themselves for signs of breast cancer.
Because of Andrea and Margaret, thousands of people were reminded to check their breasts for changes today.
That makes me feel really good.
And what’s going on “in real life”? In the real world today, I’m out doing science work and having a marvelous time. It’s like the last year never happened. Almost. And an old friend gave me an incredibly needed compliment.
“Is that your real hair?” he asked.
Why yes. Yes, it is.
Mine, all mine.
It’s a new day, friends. I can finally see over to the other side. The side after cancer. I will always mourn Andrea , Susan B, Ursel, and the other friends I have lost to IBC and other kinds of cancer. They were the first, and I know they won’t be the last. But today I can see a life for myself again beyond cancer.
And today that’s good enough for me.
