Hello! Hello! Gosh is it ever nice to be back. I can’t begin to tell you how much I have missed you all. This summer and fall has been a period of stupendous change and growth. I have so much to share with you.
Let’s begin with the unveiling of a new video series….but before I do, please allow me to give you some background….after all, “Why?” seems like a good place to start.
On a daily basis (sometimes hourly!) I think and dream about how I can be of service to people who have to follow me down this path, just as those who came before me made my experience more effective and more bearable.
As you know by now, most of my ideas have come from what was missing during my experience. Well, I remember – like it was yesterday! – being up in the middle of the night (all night!) with ‘roid rage (from steroid use) or anxiety (from having cancer!).
I wished that I had had someone to talk with me about what I could expect, to rationalize my (seemingly crazed!) feelings and to help me through. I looked for videos online and they were either too depressing or provided incorrect information. Quelle horreur!
So, earlier this spring, I made the exciting (well exciting to me, anyway) decision to go deeper into the digital world with the creation of a series of videos. During those long, long, long nights I wished that I had had someone to talk with me about what I could expect, to rationalize my (seemingly crazed!) feelings and to help me through.
The truth of the matter is that I couldn’t read a book…heck I couldn’t even read People magazine! This is the reason that I created this video series. It is focused on health and wellness with the patient voice, first hand experience, and real life stories at its core (the patient being ME!)
Like my Silver Lining Companion Guide, I want to develop content to positively impact lives by guiding, inspiring and empowering people impacted by FBC (f-bomb breast cancer).
Sooooooo, without further ado, here is the first in the series, “To Fight or Not To Fight During Treatment.” I would greatly deeply appreciate your thoughts and feedback. What do you like? What can be done better? Suggestions for future topics? Thank you – as always! – for your love and support.
