My very best wishes to you for future good health! Stay strong. Thanks to all the rest of you who wrote, too, with such caring messages. Those are very important to cancer patients. I'm now 63, and had a left-side mastectomy (no reconstruction) in 1998, at the age of 52. The experience was so significant and life-changing for me -- mainly in good ways -- that I wrote a whole book about it. That book has now been re-issued. It's ANOTHER CHANCE AT LIFE: A BREAST CANCER SURVIVOR'S JOURNEY (Norilana Books, 2009), by Leonore Dvorkin. It will also come out in Spanish in 2010. The paperback is only $9.95, and just $8.95 to Barnes and Noble members on www.bn.com. I hope you will check it out. It covers my personal medical details, the emotional benefits I gained, my philosophy on dealing with any of life's larger crises, and much more. It also contains some 40 pages of appendices that cover risk factors for breast cancer and a lot more. Details are on my website: www.dvorkin.com You can see the cover (I took the cover photo), my photo, review quotes, excerpts from the text, and more. Thanks to all who read my message, and good health and happiness to all of you! Nov. 13, 2009 / Denver, CO

It is an innovative fundraising effort intended to raise $3 million for cancer research, called “The Big Bundle”. ABC News just covered this initiative… http://bit.ly/ABC_News_TheBigBundle Cancer affects nearly everyone, yet in economic climate, people are finding it difficult to donate. TheBigBundle.com makes it easy for everyone to do his or her part. In return for a $29.99 donation, consumers get $700 worth of freebies. Consumers get products (e.g., TrendMicro AntiVirus, Zagat, Snapfish, etc), services (Skype, GoDaddy, TripIt, etc), and discounts (Hotels.com, Gap, Lancome, Nordstroms, etc) from 32 companies. If you could write about this, it would surely help the cause! Thanks Sylvie, Daniel Sylvie,

I'm a member of his CW board. You are a brave lady, one of many who have contributed their stories here. I had a near brush with cervical cancer myself May last yr. Fortunately it was Pre-cancer not cancer cancer. Check-up annually now for 10yrs. I wrote a blog (far back in the archives) on www.myspace/theoryofr, you and the ladies here may relate to called 'Fear of death- who do you talk to'. It's something I couldn't really share when I was 'in it' but as you say the writing helps a lot to externalise those feelings and keep them at a nice safe distance. Anyway, I wish you and your family all the best, and take it easy. Leah x Hi Sylvie
