    Breast Cancer, Young Women, and Fertility Preservation

    in Health

    Everyone knows that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Virtually no family has escaped being impacted by breast cancer.  There are many types of breast cancer and an alarming number of young women are afflicted with breast cancer.  The subject of young women and breast cancer does not receive nearly enough attention and much more public awareness and education are needed.  Accordingly, on this episode of “Battling and Beating Cancer” we focus on young women with breast cancer.  One of the many things that breast cancer – and other cancers – and cancer treatments can take from young women is the ability to have children.  We will address the important subjects of infertility and preserving the ability of cancer patients to become mothers with Mindy Berkson, a renowned fertility consultant and founder of Chicago-based Lotus Blossom Consulting.  We also will be joined by Alice Crisci, a remarkably woman who took her experience with breast cancer and turned it into a blessing for many other woman by helping them become mothers through her non-profit organization Fertile Action.  This is a must hear pink episode of Battling and Beating Cancer.

    Breast Cancer Journey as a Graphic Narrative

    in Current Events

    Breast cancer is not easy, simple or just like everyone else's experience.  It is unique, it touches every cell in your body and screams with all your emotions to pay attention and be present.  Why are we making such light of this process as the numbers of women who have gone through the disease say, 'oh, I did that, you'll do fine'. Have we minimalized the pain, suffereing, medical interventions, loss of self and damage to the physical and spiritual body?  Why is this becoming so ordinary? 


    Tina Martel is a visual artist and author of Not in the Pink which she has documented her personal journey with stage two B breast cancer.  She tells all; from the moment of discovery of the lump through all the treatments with details that many are so afraid of writing about or even voicing.  It is a raw book with details that we wished we did not want to ask as we are afraid of the answers, yet it is so important to know ahead of the process so that you may start your own healing with your thoughts and how your journey will play out.


    This book is for those who are on any part of this path, for those who have loved ones on the path and even for those who are already on a different path as it is relatable and honest about Tina's life.  Sometimes what isn't voiced is more scarey than what is.  Take a risk and read this book with kindness and love in your heart for those who are on any health crisis journey.

    "The Many Faces of Breast Cancer"

    in Christianity

    Join me today as we talk to Paulla Miller and Jan James in the 2nd part of our 4 part series on breast cancer.  Jan James is a breast cancer survivor and founder of the Provision Project, a non-profit organization with the mission to provide financial relief to women in active treatment for breast cancer. 


    Soon after Jan was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, she founded a private online breast cancer support group which now numbers almost 600 women in nine countries.  Through that support group, Jan and her leadership team have become intimately aware of the ways in which breast cancer can impact a woman's life, physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and financially.  The Provision Project wants to help women who face tough financial decisions as they are actively being treated for breast cancer. I know you will be inspired, educated, and moved as you hear about these courageous women, and the overcoming spirit they continue to express, and live out!
