Making our minds matter

Receiving the devastating news that you have breast cancer can knock many people sideways. An already heavily compromised immune system is further depleted as stress levels rise. Daunted by the treatment which lies ahead, coupled with concerns about looking after families; children as well as ageing parents. The likelihood of having to take unpaid leave […]

The Love Boat

It is almost here, embarkation day.  Many of us have been counting down the days (less than 13) until we set sail on the 8th Annual  Thrivers Cruise.   This is the mother of all cruises.  The crown jewel, so-to-speak.  How fitting that this year we will be sailing on The Royal Caribbean Liberty of […]

A Little Slice of Heaven

During this past year I met an incredible woman, Daphne D. Evans.  She is CEO and founder of Heaven’s Door Cancer Foundation, a non-profit organization out of San Francisco, California.  Recently, I asked Daphne how this foundation came to be.  Here is her story. In 2005, Daphne was diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a […]

The Unheralded Breast Cancer

As a breast cancer advocate, blogger and writer, I believe it important to support all types of breast cancers.  Last week I had the opportunity to meet someone who has had Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC).  Our conversation did not get very far before I realized I knew very little about this disease. My friend, Terry […]

‘HAPPY THANKSGIVING’  I hope you are all having a fabulous time. We don’t have an annual thanksgiving celebration here in the UK, perhaps we should?

You Are So Beautiful

Remember that song Joe Cocker sang, “You are so beautiful to me…”? It’s one of my all-time favorite romantic songs. Some of the other lines are, “You’re everything I hoped for, everything I dreamed…” The other day this song was playing in my head and I was inspired to stand in front of the mirror […]

The Path to Cancer

Cancer is not a new development. Cancer has been around since the time of dinosaurs; however, cancer rates are soaring to new levels. Is it genetic? The rise in breast cancer rates (and pediatric cancers and asthma, for that matter) cannot just be genetic because they are rising at such a precipitous rate. Could it […]

I have a dear friend who had a brush with death recently.  She had to have aortic valve replacement surgery. This was not something she was born with. Her aortic valve eroded due to excessive exposure to cobalt radiation treatment she received following a mastectomy 39-years ago. Breast cancer is the gift that keeps on […]

Aspects of Cancer

If you are familiar with the work of Andrew Lloyd Weber, then you are probably familiar with his musical, Aspects of Love. One of the biggest songs to come out of this venture is, “Love Changes Everything” by Don Black and Charles Hart.  As I was playing this today, I changed the lyrics a tad […]
