I was profiled on HeyMama.com all about what it means to me to blog through my breast cancer plot twist. This is the first time I have really spoken out about what it is like for my children knowing I was diagnosed and seeing me go through this beast of a disease.
I made a video, which I posted here my-thoughts-on-my-first-october-with-breast-cancer-vlog.html to talk about what it means to be a breast cancer patient, survivor, victim during October.
The UnderBelly Breast Cancer #In6Words Project
Over the summer, I was asked to make a photo with the six words that document my breast cancer experience. In watching the finished product, I am so proud to have been a part of this powerful project. When I watched the video showing all of the photos, I was humbled, touched and a little surprised. Most of the photos are showcasing the real deal - all about the breast cancer reality check we all need to share and know. Breast cancer is not PINK, it is not about girl power, it is not about making things pink and selling them. It is about grief, heartache, surgery, chemotherapy, being strong, tough, and hopefully helping those afflicted with cancer. Cancer is something that takes away your comfort or your ability to be just you.
You are no longer just you - though you are you but to everyone who looks at you, you are just a sick person, someone without hair or without a breast - but inside, stripped of all of that, you are still you. I am me - spoken about here am-i-me.html- for me, I was quiet and had no voice for so long - now I am out and proud and sharing my story but I have the twist of positivity. I cannot help but be as smile-y as possible and to consider myself a survivor no matter what happens.

And more to come...
Continue to watch this space, I have a ton of blog posts in draft and I even recently took a TOPLESS photo (OMG, I am petrified about this - but it is just of my chest ... so I will pretend not to pass out when it gets posted). I am still me and I am very damn tough.
This is what I do in the time between.
