CancerCare: Living With, Through and Beyond Cancer

The Survivorship Series is here! Click on the image above to ZOOM IN on this year's schedule!!

I was very excited to get this year's CancerCare telephone workshop schedule in the mail. I participated last year and it was very useful and interesting! Check out the post from last year's workshop. By participating, I mean I dialed in while I was at work, and just listened to what many healthcare professionals and providers as well as survivors had to say about coping with cancer.

It was easy to sign up and select the workshops. Maybe you should listen in on this year's series? There are three different topics on different dates: Communicating with your Doctor about Follow-Up Care, Rediscovering Intimacy following Treatment, and Family, Friends and Loved Ones.

There are lots of other workshops and information brochures available on the CancerCare site. I just thought this survivorship series was cool. So why not register and dial in? We won't get mad at you if you don't, or if you have to hang up while on the call, you don't have to say a thing while on the call. Being incognito and just eavesdropping is pretty much the idea here!

So here's the deal. Register with the folks at CancerCare via the website. Easy as pie. It's also free. Sweeeet!

Love is... pretty awesome!

This message is from Weezy:

Hello Everyone!
Last week it was the Wife's Birthday. Happy Birthday! This week is time for Valentine's, so I think it's a good time to appreciate those we love. Love heals and is forgiving and you guys have shown me you are greater and more wonderful the more the days pass. You guys are living the challenge and yet you still have strength to pull others through. I was reminded this week that love is strong within us and am glad you embed that in us. Happy Valentine's Day! I leave you with this little thought about love as my little gift of love to you!

Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Where are we in Sarcoma Research?

Ever wonder where sarcoma research money goes? The National Cancer Institute's page called the "Cancer Research Portfolio" lists the research projects scientists apply for to advance sarcoma research. This page lists a large number of projects specific to Soft-Tissue Sarcoma.
