I have read that many women dealing with breast cancer struggle with self-image. They worry that they won’t be as attractive after treatment, that they will feel, or be perceived as being, less feminine. I’m glad that concern hasn’t affected me. I mean, it was a total coincidence that I bought a new nightgown and two new tops right before my surgery… along with getting a new hairstyle… a total coincidence.

Then it occurred to me that perhaps by keeping a blog journal of my experiences, I could provide encouragement and hope to others who find themselves on a similar journey. Please feel free to join me here and share what you have learned through the physical, emotional, and spiritual experience that is called cancer.
