Making It Mine

One of the best parts about working for Virtua is the team I am part of.  One member of this team published a book to help teens whose parent or loved one was dealing with cancer.  This book, "Making It Mine:  Stories of Teens Who Found Themselves in Their Parents' Cancer," is outstanding and I strongly suggest that you read it.  The author, Brie Bernhardt, is an oncology social worker.  She even had a book signing so she is the real deal:-).  RUN, don't walk, to your computer and order this book from Amazon today.  It is a GREAT read!!!  Also,

Think "Dancing with the Stars." Yes, I wore a ball gown. Yes, I danced with a pro. Yes, I did the salsa. No, I did not fall on my face or butt. No, I did not win (GRRRR), but I will get to all of this.

"The Other Side"

Six months have passed since my last post. I am not exactly sure why; other than that I am slowly drifting to "the other side".......... the post-cancer side. It feels almost like a dream (nightmare really) that I had cancer at all. Sometimes I am not even 100% sure that I went through everything that I did. But............... then............. the reminders show up: the scars I see right before I get into the shower, the smell of the oncology wing when I go in for check-ups, the news that a friend or a friend of a friend has been newly diagnosed, casually walking by a bald mom at a cheer
