A Chance to Share Your Story

Posted 8/30/2013

  You have surely "heard" me complain about Pink October, but, very occasionally, the spotlight on breast cancer produces something good. This may be one of those rare occasions.

  The New York Times is inviting women (and men) who have had breast cancer to share their stories. They will be using/publishing them in various ways, and it would be terrific to have some of you represented. Here is a little about it and a link to learn more:

If you live with breast cancer, love someone with breast cancer or worry about your risk for breast cancer, you are part of a global community of women and men whose lives have been touched by the disease.

We want to hear from you. Over the coming weeks, The New York Times will be collecting stories from women and men around the world whose lives and experiences have been shaped by a breast cancer diagnosis.

Denine Taylor of Plymouth, Minn. shared her story, telling us that her experience with cancer has made her feel brave. “After 20-weeks of chemo for stage 2 breast cancer, you know what you need to be afraid of and what is nonsense,” she said. “I can honestly say that I take more joy in life, such as spending precious time with my son, and watching his success in the world as a young man with autism.”
