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.
