When I was going through my treatments for FBC (f-bomb breast cancer for new readers), a friend directed me to Lisa Bonchek Adams’ blog. She is a beautiful, inspiring writer who communicates not only about the disease itself, but also about its impact on her young family. This month, more than five years after her original diagnosis, she learned that her cancer had metastasized to her bones and that she now has stage IV breast cancer (f-bomb!). Shortly after her recurrence diagnosis, she posted this beautiful, powerful and very realistic poem on her blog. I asked if I could share it here with you dear readers and she generously agreed.
Thank you, Lisa. Sending you all of my very best wishes!
