Thanks, Cancer

Once upon a time, one day about a month ago, I was rat-holing around the internet looking for some fresh media to lift me up with others of my kind, or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

I stumbled across this incredibly honest, irreverent, and relevant breast cancer podcast Thanks, Cancer, by Mimi Hall and Leanna House, which can be found at the link below. The charmingly ironic theme song fills one with wonderment on just who these two think they are? What, are they pretending to star in their own sitcom with a fucking theme song? But alas, the irony of the theme song and the sarcasm inherent in the very title itself should provide you with a clue as to why you, with cancer or caregiver of person who has or had cancer, may find refreshing camaraderie, not only between these sassy ass friends, but with them as well.

Thanks Mimi.
Thanks Leanna.
Fuck Cancer.

Female. East coast transplant living in the Bay Area of California. Living with Stage IV breast cancer. Married to the coolest guy in the universe who occasionally suffers from serious depression. Love my stepsons, although I never thought I'd have that thankless job - ever! And my best friend Simon is also my cat. How I have survived with stage IV: treatments including chemo and surgery; palliative oncology; tenacity; a dark sense of humor; support groups; and my newly reinvented career as a vintage and antiques maven. Some days I miss the old me who led a well respected and well paid life as a business strategist in high tech. So much for that. I blog to simply share my experiences and my poetic approach with others who have cancer of any kind or with their care givers and those who love them. If one person at the very least finds a little commonality or a friend out in the ether tor a smile, a common nod about this experience, or even a link to assistance, then I have accomplished a small but extraordinarily meaningful goal. Go team.
