I just wanted to say to say how inspiring I am finding the women in these forums are. I do not have breast cancer, but I was very upset when a young women in our community died after 8 years with her own personal battle with cancer late last year and I wanted to help raise awareness. I spoke to a number of women who had either survived their breast cancer or who were currently dealing with breast cancer as to how I might be able to help. My background was in document design and I had recently started a customised journal business and I asked these women if a journal for them to write their thoughts, feelings, anguish and milestones would be something that might help? The feedback was really positive so for the last 6 mths that is what I have been doing. Creating a breast cancer awareness gift to help raise awareness and also funds for two breast cancer foundations. I have met the most amazing women in the creation of this journal. And I have been truly humbled by their determination, strength and courage through what to me seems to be absolute hell. I know my contribution is only small and but if I can help raise awareness and help in any small way to make a difference to the future of all women and our children then it has all been worthwhile. I have created a section on my website for women to leave any tips, poems, thoughts that may help someone else who may be just starting their own personal journey. I watched a video clip of the 3 day walk for breast cancer and I wept. I was so moved by some of the stories yet so inspired by the friendships of complete strangers that were made over the 3 day period. That is when I realised that what I was doing was a good thing and that these women need our support and help in whatever way we can. Sylvie, you are amazing there is no other word to express your courage and ability to take on the challenge and beat it. And I truly believe there is a very happy and long life ahead of you. The feedback from the people who have received my Breast Cancer Journal called "Your Journey" has been fantastic. 4 women who have survived their own personal journey have contributed to the journal and the cover was painted by a dear friend of mine who is an artist who has lost 3 members of her family to cancer. If you get a chance to contribute to my site or have any suggestions on how I could further help to raise awareness for breast cancer please email me direct. I wish you all the strength, love and support to survive your own personal journeys and may your lives be forever filled with happiness and health. Below is a poem from my journal. Your Journey Love, laughter and inner peace it is all a part of the healing process. Find that happy place filled with memories, dreams and positive energy. Each day is precious and special, so focus on all the good things in your life, and let your mind and body heal from within. Live each day with passion, fulfillment goals, aspirations and happiness. Spend more time with family and friends, as their love, strength and support, will help you through the tough days. It’s important to focus all your energy on you, your health and your inner strength. Truly believe, stay positive, and be strong. Hi Sylvie

so focus on all the good things in your life,
and let your mind and body heal from within.
Live each day with passion, fulfillment

It’s important to focus all your energy on you,
your health and your inner strength.
Truly believe, stay positive, and be strong.

I am scheduled for a biopsy on Friday for a small cluster of microcalcifications. I'm 34. I know at this point I shouldn't be freaking myself out. But I find myself looking up more and more info, learning all I can....which in turn freaks me out more. Reading your entire blog today made me smile and relax a bit. I can't make time fly any faster so I can find out any sooner and frankly I don't really want time to go by any faster than it seems to be. Like you, I just found happiness, have a life I love, a teenaged daughter and well...here I am waiting for the other shoe to drop. Thank you for helping me out today. I'll continue to check in on you throughout your journey. Your strength and your attitude give me so much hope. Take care! I just wanted to say thank you.

I don't know if you remember but we met in June 2005 at the Fusion seminar in Miami. And I was shocked to discover you attracted breast cancer into your life. You have my deepest empathy - what a challenge to face! Then after reading through your blog I can only applaud you for your incredible courage and your positive attitude. You are so right about not wanting to fight the dis-ease but focusing on health instead. And living your life to the fullest. Michel, your children and your other family are blessed to share their lives with you! Sending you much love and light, Patricia (the Netherlands) P.S. What a great idea to have a list with gift ideas for people with cancer. I would love to write a bit about that and link back. Dear Sylvie,
