Tuesday was the prelim. Thursday is the main event.
Right now, I am resting between sprints.
Trying to breathe.
Inhale. Pray. Exhale.

The days and weeks ahead are going to be another life test.
(Pretty sure I learned this lesson already, but, okay, universe.)

The outpouring of concern and love I have received on here has been so far beyond anything I could have imagined. I feel so supported and strengthened by all these messages--too many for me to respond to all of them, but deeply, deeply appreciated.

Thank you so VERY much.

There are currently 17M Americans with #cancer.
41% of us will get some form of cancer in our lifetimes.
That's nearly half of us.
Everyone knows someone with cancer.
So we have to be vigilant and we have to take care of ourselves--lower that stress, first and foremost.

I first got #BreastCancer at 26. It came back when I was 28. But I survived.
I've written a lot about breast cancer--a book, dozens of articles.
This one isn't new, but it is still 100% accurate and comprehensive.

I wrote this in-depth investigation on #LungCancer @damemagazine a week ago, but you may have missed it.
More young women are getting lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer deaths for women.
200 women a day DIE from the disease.
Read, RT, save a life.

We don't know what causes most #cancer.
Some is environmental--#radon causes #lungcancer, the sun causes #melanoma.
Some is viral: #HPV causes cervical, penis, testicular and some throat cancers.
(Get your kids vaccinated!!!)
Smoking is implicated in almost all cancers.

Know the warning signs of #cancer.
(Please--STOP SMOKING.)

Dec. 13 is St. Lucy's day.
Those of us who grew up in Scandinavian households know her as the patron saint of truth & #justice. She was a revolutionary who fed & cared for the #Resistance fighting against tyranny in her era.
A good patron saint for me, as I go under the knife.

So--take care of yourselves, friends.
Remember to step away from Trump--he's toxic af
Lower your stress.
Hydrate.
#Breathe deep--we breathe shallowly when stressed.
Hug someone. (Consent only!)
Pet a cat/dog.
Look out at the night and take in the stars.
