Me, Mom, and Weenie Chillin’

 

Hi my name is Morgan my mom was diagnosed with stage 3C breast cancer when I was in kindergarten.  As you may know I wrote a post when I was 8. I am now 11 in fifth grade and she has had cancer for about 5 years.  When I look back it tells me my mom is STRONG.(of course I already thought that). She has fought this long and I will always love her in the present and the future.

THANK YOU, MORGAN

Blending Past & Present

My Nanna (who died of brain cancer when I was 9) and me…

When I started this blog, I had a lofty plan.  I imagined that I would write every day, telling the story of my cancer journey in chronological order, beginning shortly before diagnosis and continuing through today.  It was going well, though I didn’t get very far before infections and hospitalizations this summer took precedence.  After another major event (that I will share in the future) developed, I just couldn’t find the energy to post…

Creating this blog has been something I hoped to do from the start of my cancer experience, so I’ve decided to make it a priority.  To accomplish this goal, I feel the need to revamp it so there are no longer giant gaps between posts.  I’ve decided to abandon my original plan and will no longer feel tethered to the idea that I need to tell the story chronologically.  Though I will continue to share the journey from the beginning, I don’t want to ignore what is happening today.  Because I am still here to tell the story myself, I will include elements from my early days as a cancer patient, but I will also incorporate current stories about this life-altering process and the ongoing struggles and joys that are a part of my life as a cancer patient/survivor in my thirties.

I am excited about this new format and I’m looking forward to melding the past with the present.  I hope you will join me for what I guarantee will be an eventful tale.  Thank you…
