Thanks for visiting!
I hope you can find everything you need. Dancing in the Rain is focused on providing a place for breast cancer survivors to connect with each other and share their experiences. I also welcome friends or relatives of cancer patients. Sometimes when a loved one is sick we don't know how to act or what to say. I want this to be a place for comfort and understanding.
I was diagnosed with HER2+ invasive breast cancer in my right breast in October 2008. After neoadjuvant chemotherapy I had a unilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction using tissue from my latissimus dorsi and a small implant. I had 28 radiation treatments and a year of the drug Herceptin.
I wrote Dancing in the Rain about my experience and the experiences of four women I met at a Zumba fundraiser for Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Pittsburgh. It is available for sale on Amazon.com.
I look forward to sharing tips on nutrition and exercise for cancer patients and survivors. I also want this to be a place where we can discuss our fears about a
re-occurrence and our struggles to maintain a normal family life during and after treatment.
In addition I want to talk about what we can all do to live happier, healthier lives and how we can learn to look at life in a more positive way. The biggest thing I learned as a survivor is that every day is precious filled with infinite possibilities...how we choose to use each day is up to us and I choose to try to spread some joy or comfort. Let me know how I'm doing by commenting on mt blogs. Hope to see you again soon!
I hope to see you again! Check back later for new updates to my website. There's much more to come!
