Bio: Three months after my 40th birthday, which I wasted a great deal of time dreading, I was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer, and I realized birthdays are precious. I am a single mother of two crazy boys, lover of good food and good wine, good yoga and a good trail run. I kitchen-dance, I cook, I am blessed with a fabulous, eclectic group of people I am proud to call friends. I am dealing. These are my stories of the before, the during, and the aftermath of breast cancer.

  1. I have followed your blog from the beginning. I too chronicled my journey with breast cancer (though not nearly as eloquently as you did). Sometimes I go back and read some of it and it seems like a dream. I am now four years out from the end of treatment, five years out from “lump discovery”. Some of the fear remains, but it is not nearly as scary as it was at the beginning. Hang in there, it gets better, life will never be the same but in many ways it will be more rewarding. You have re-established what your priorities are and you have certainly learned a lot about yourself. I did too. Thank you for reminding me of these important things.

  2. Hi there! My name is Cameron Von St. James and I had a quick question for you & was wondering if you could please email me when you have a free moment. Thanks! I really hope to hear from you soon and appreciate you taking the time. ☺ cvonstjames AT gmail DOT com

    • Hi Betty! I haven’t been doing any writing for a very long time – too long. I think I’ll start to get back to it in the New Year. I hope those two children of yours are doing well?
