What?  You didn’t think this was going to be some sappy “cancer-made-my-life-better” post, did you?  Fuck that.  Cancer ain’t making anything better.

But I do want to take a break from writing to sincerely thank everyone for following and reading The Boob.  It started as a way for me to document (what I thought would be) an isolated period in an effort to make sense of it all.  To that end it has been rewarding and enjoyable.

What I didn’t quite expect is that it would give voice to many facing the same challenge.  I also did not expect it to be a vehicle through which I would receive so much support and encouragement from around the world.  I am really touched and made stronger by all of your support.  I am, indeed, honored that I can give voice to those you who can’t quite express your frustrations and fears. And I hope that in reading The Boob–whether it be in the Americas, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, or Europe–you feel like you’re supported by the most comfortable bra in your drawer.

Keep reading and feel free to send me suggestions.  And if I find out that any of you are wearing a pink ribbon I will personally visit and smack it off your chest.  Hard.

    I look forward to you comments every day. What you write is exactly what I’m thinking most of the time. Haveing almost zero energy and keeping my own business up and running is all I can manage right now. If the “boob” wasn’t out here, I might feel obliged to write something (maybe not). Your blog makes me smile (which these days is harder to do than usual). Thanks for your time and energy. Ramona

    I hate pink. Not wearing it here.

  4. Keep reading you? I want to find out where you live and hang out with you 😉 I love how you jumped right into the blogging pissed off and snarky. My own maiden voyage into blogging started out as something I would want my family to read “when I’m gone” and be proud of my bravery *snort* It didn’t take long for the f-bombs to make an appearance.

    It’s not “out of the way,” I’m just lazy! Love you lots. Miller

    That’s why I’m not sending you one of my “breast cancer pink” thinking of you cards… Bwahaha! I want a hug when I see you on Sinday, not a smack! 🙂

      Also you can be pleasantly (and unpleasantly) learn who your real friends are. Some of the people I thought I could count on haven’t reached out at all, others who I didn’t expect much support from have really surprised me with their concer and help. And of course, there are those who you just knew who would be there every step of the way and are coming out of their way to visit from out of state! ❤
