A Few More Minutes

And in the New York Times, no less.

Update: As far as I can tell, the story will be in the print copy on Thursday, January 8th on page E6.

Update: There is an audio interview, too. To listen to the audio, just look on the left hand side of the screen right under the picture in the article. You will see a box that says "Multimedia" with a play button and my name just underneath that. You can listen to me, then Dave Shack, and then just let it loop and listen to us both over and over and over again. Just what you want to do, I know. :)


WOW!! I don't have the NY Times copy but I am pretty sure it was there. You, please have no doubt.

Congratulations. Your story will continue motivating people in an exponential way....

You're a national celebrity! The NY Times article made the front page of the Life section of our paper this morning!

You rock. I'm so proud to call you a friend. XXOO

Great story!

I always check in to see how you're doing...and you're still amazing!

WOW! I was searching for pictures of post cancer hair styles for a fellow support group member who is going cap-less for the first time today and feeling vulnerable, so I was looking to bolster her self confidence with inspiring pictures and I completely stumbled haphazardly onto your blog here. I'M SO GLAD I DID! I don't know you but I'm so proud of you anyway. I am a 2 1/2 year survivor of stage II BC, diagnosed at age 35, double mast, reconstruction, four months chemo (isn't it funny how we can sum up the worst year of our lives with quick stats that are universally understandable among fellow survivors? It's like ordering at Starbucks but instead of tall, soy, double charmel mach it's stage II, double mast, recon, 8 rounds A/C, Taxol mix) - and in my own recovery I founded a breast cancer support group called Breast Friends in my small South Texas City of Victoria. What I've read so far is so normal!!! I have heard these same words out of so many women's (and men's) mouths at certain points in their survivorship. I haven't gotten far enough into your blog to know the answer to this next question, but I certainly hope you have a circle of support like a support group or a group of women who share your history. I plan to read more and subscribe to your blog and to share it with my fellow group members who will surely see many of their own stories echoed in your beautiful writing. I look forward to getting to know you better and reading along as you walk this journey. Please feel free to write to me if you feel so inspired. You are beautiful and powerful and again, I'm so very glad I have stumbled onto your site. You are AMAZING.

Wow...I love your blog! So inspiring! As a cancer survivor myself, I have learned that life is precious and have worked hard to help all touched by cancer. I applaud what you do and congratulations!
