Friends in the News to Promote Ovarian Cancer Awareness.

On July 10th I wrote about the Somerset Patriots Ovarian Cancer Awareness night on August 1st. My NOCC friends, Carl and Ellen have been instrumental in getting this to happen.

Read their interview in the article in today's Home News and Tribune.

There is still time to order tickets. Check my July 10th entry or the article to get info on how to order tickets.I'm looking forward to a fun evening of baseball.


Every Day is a Blessing!

Open invitation to you and your readers to participate in the Being Cancer Book Club. This month we are discussing "The Light Within: the Extraordinary Friendship of a Doctor and Patient Brought Together by Cancer". “When young gynecologic oncology fellow Lois Ramondetta was first summoned to the room of a new ovarian cancer patient, neither she nor the forty-nine-year-old professor of religion she encountered named Deborah Sills thought they had much in common. They certainly had no idea that they were about to embark on a transcendent odyssey that would become a soul-deep friendship. Now their heartfelt story, The Light Within, follows these two women through a decade of friendship and “big lives”—husbands, children, friends, and careers—ultimately crossing the country and traveling to foreign lands, where they spoke and wrote together about the intersection of doctors, patients, and spirituality. Both women searched together and openly for answers with honesty and intimacy until Deborah passed away in the spring of 2006.”
Monday is Book Club day; Wednesday Guest Blog and Friday Cancer News Roundup.
Also check out Cancer Blog Links containing over 350 blog links and Cancer Resources with 250 reference sites, both divided into disease categories.
Please accept this invitation to join our growing cancer blogging community at www.beingcancer.net

I will check out your book club. I like your choice for August- a story of an Ovarian cancer patient and her gyn-onc. I feel a close relationship with my gyn-onc too. I consider her my friend who also is my doctor.
