BreastCancerAt35

Now that my cancer has resurfaced and has been deemed incurable, I’ve made this blog public, with a few exceptions of individual posts that discuss legal matters or show graphic pictures. Anyone who knows me understands the degree of privacy i typically require, and sharing this much information with people will be quite the challenge … but I don’t have a lot of time left, and this information might help someone down the road.

I need to document this.  I need to do it for myself, to process all that unfolds as I battle this war on my body.  I need to do it for my loved ones, who (with the best of intentions) want ongoing updates.  I need to do it for womyn i will likely never even meet, womyn who will end up having their own cancer experience and may seek out anecdotes in an effort to help guide themselves through their own painful journeys.

HELPFUL TIPS:
1.  You’ll be able to find my most recent posts are there on the right side of this page or at the very bottom of this page, depending whether you’re using a mobile device or computer.

2.  Additional blogs can be found by clicking “Archives,” also on the right side and towards the bottom of the main page.

3.  If a blog title has both a date and words, that means i wrote an entry for that day.  If a blog title has just a date, that means i need to go back and write an entry for that particular day, but i have not yet done so.  Those blank entries may have pictures available – just not a written blog.

  2. Om Sri Dhanvantre Namaha
    A prayer to the celestial physician.
    It is a tradition for women to chant this mantra while preparing food or to infuse this healing energy into what may be entering their body as a source of healing energy. This mantra will lead you to follow your own personal journey healing the body. What ever method that may be, may it be manifested into full form. With all my love to you sister… 💜💗💚 lorean

    Lots of people leaving a lot of wonderful thoughts your way. And to think you used to believe very few cared. Silly girl.

Hey Kiddo, my Spanish is a bad as yours, I worked at a bakery where most of the help spoke Spanish and I took it in school, Catching up on reading, I know I am reading from to back,Gives me a chance to find out and you do have a way with words with the definition and details of your day to day struggles.
    Love You Always, read some more, write some more

  11. If I could tell the world one thing about you, it would be I’m okay, and not to worry cause worry is wasteful and useless in times like these. I won’t be made useless . I won’t be idle with despair, I will gather myself around my faith, light does the darkness fear. love you Tarah and all ways will.
