So much to share!
Posted by ellynd
Oops. I’ve been neglecting my blog again. There’s always so much to share but so little time. I’ve started training again—pretty short distances at this point but still takes a chunk of time. It feels good to get back in walking mode and now that the sun is finally shining, I can’t wait to get outside. Work is keeping me busy too—writing proposals, proposals and more proposals and working on our Brogan & Partner’s blog. I was extremely flattered to recently be named Breast Cancer Survivor of the Month on the breastcaresite.com. And I still have my moments when I lose myself in Twitter and can’t find my way out. If my tweet deck is up, breast cancer tweets pop up every other second and if they include links to articles or videos, I’m in big trouble.
This Saturday, I’m speaking at the St. John Health Breast Cancer Symposium. Next week, I’ll be talking about Social Media to the Michigan Association of Realtors. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge in both areas through other speaking engagements. I’m also very busy ramping up fundraising efforts for the 3-Day. While the economy is tough right now, it’s nowhere near as tough as cancer. If you’ve got a spare $5, please donate.
I found a site last night that I thought might be helpful to some of my readers. It’s from a fellow FORCE member. She chose to have a prophylactic mastectomy and does a wonderful job sharing details of her decision-making process, the surgery and post surgery. I was too busy going through chemo and didn’t really pay much attention to the surgery and expansion process but I think this would so helpful to people who do have the BRCA mutation and may be considering surgery. The unknown is always far scarier. She does include pictures throughout the process and has yet to have her final reconstruction. Thank you to Lianne for sharing your journey.
Happy sunshine and spring to those of you living in the State of Michigan. Hope the rest of the country is sunny today!
