Have you voted for me to be on a Panel at SXSW yet? David Kopp from Healthline and I want to talk about what it would take to reach for a cure for cancer, and what today's modern, empowered patient can do to help achieve that goal. Surprise, dumping a bucket of water on your head is not part of the plan!
Also, if you have a registered Disqus account, you can log in with that and leave me a comment. If you answer some of the above questions in the comments I can include your viewpoint in what I say at the SXSW panel. I will be acting to represent all cancer patients, not just myself, so your point of view is important to me.
For some reason, I couldn't do a direct YouTube link to the video in this blog, so I had to save it and then reupload it. If you want to commont on YouTube, click here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weCVRZbgIWo
If you have enjoyed my blog and want to donate but are afraid that I'm going to spend the money on political campaigns or plastic surgery, let me assuage your fears. Any donation made will go towards my son's college education. Be warned, there is no tax deduction here, consider it like buying a book, a continually updated but unedited book. A small percentage of what I receive yearly will go to StandUp2Cancer. Consider it entirely voluntary, I love you whether you donate or not. Now click.
I live with metastatic breast cancer. .
I was diagnosed 2009 with Stage 2 Her2+ breast cancer. Mastectomy followed, 6 rounds of chemo and a year of herceptin. A few months after I finished, cancer was found in my liver-incurable. I've done chemo after chemo, has my liver partially removed and did cyber knife radiation. Like all metsters, I'll be on treatment until I die.
I'm a former High School Secretary, wife, and mother of two great sons.
