RIP Blogging Friend

Rachel Moro, of the Cancer Culture Chronicles, passed away February 6th. She was a frequent commenter here, and we kept in touch via email, having mostly the same positions on breast cancer advocacy. I can't tell you how hard it is to hear that she is gone. We all know this moment will come, we women with metastatic cancer, but it doesn't make it easy.

RIP Rachel


  1. Rachel's death came as such a shock. I thought something was up when there wasn't a single snark remark over the Komen mess. Then, I saw Lani tweet something about keeping Rachel in our thoughts..... and then Monday morning, I saw RIP in a tweet stream and I had to get up and walk away from my computer as if slamming my laptop would make those words disappear. It's heartbreaking for all of us and I hope this does not sound trite or like "pity" because it's not my intention. I just imagine it IS somewhat harder for you than it is for many of the rest of us. I promised Rachel just two weeks before she died that I would be a fearless friend. I hope that statement isn't out of line, but I want to keep my promise to Rach..... and live with compassion, integrity and without FEAR of speaking what is in my heart.

    Love to you, my friend,

  2. Stopped by to check on you and see how you're doing. Rachel's death has unsettled all of us, hasn't it?
