Thank you!

Wow – I am humbled by all of the FB comments, emails, and love over the past 48 hours…

I am really amazed by everyone’s kindness – and I feel so lucky to have the chance to reconnect with so many friends and loved ones who reached out.   I thought I’d share a few juicy comments from email/IM/phone conversations which just made my heart burst:

  • “I have a feeling I wasn’t the only FB friend that has made an appt in the last 24 hours <to get their routine mammogram>. Thanks again for sharing, and potentially helping who knows how many others! All the best wished for a speedy recovery, and lots of rest!“– Former colleague
  • I have my PBM (prophylactic bilateral mastectomy) confirmed for 6th August so your post is really timely for me.  I have just read your blog and I love it. It was exactly what I needed to help me stay focused and positive.” – – Fellow Previvor, 27 years old.
  • My step daughter is 17.  We will be doing the genetic testing… and give her the choice.  You have touched us in many ways.. #1, your mother is a survivor.. #2 IF (my daughter) has this gene, she can do something to help herself before it makes decisions for her.” –  Family

  • “News of your exploits is spreading across the worlds.  A little green man told me that you saved a village from a generational curse by slaying a dragon and all it cost you was a breast plate.  And already I heard the village is already making you a new one for you to wear.” — Awesome friend from college.  

I love it!  Thank you so very much for your support.  It feels great to smash breast cancer in the face before breast cancer smashes me – but it feels even better to know that sharing my adventure has been helpful to you!

I….love…all of you….so….much!!



  1. My mom just told me about your blog. Not sure if you remember me from elementary school and whatnot, but at any rate, you are one brave cookie! Coincidentally, I found out about a month ago that, my husbands family carries this same BRCA1 gene (yay! – um, not). So it would appear that we will also need to look into this for our daughter in the years to come as well. I look forward to reading more and hearing how well you beat the $#!@, oh I mean tar, out of breast cancer!

  2. Alicia, OF COURSE I remember you!!! I am so glad you reached out. I hope you rest easy knowing that IF your daughter should test positive for the gene in the years to come, she will have tons of support, love, resources, and a very very bright future!! If you have any questions about my experience – feel free to send me a note:

    Big Hugs,


  3. Someone asked me why I’m so cute and my response was.. Genetics..I have a hot mom (; lmao
