Hello all, Kim here. Just wanted to thank all the ladies who have submitted their survivor stories to be posted here on The Pink Ribbon Shop's blog. The response has been overwhelming! I am working hard to personally respond to each of you before posting your story to the weblog. Thanks for your patience!
Clearly there are many breast cancer sisters out there who believe, as I do, that it's helpful to read the stories of others who have also journeyed through breast cancer. We are happy to have the opportunity and means to facilitate this survivor-to-survivor communication. Feel free to leave your comments and questions. We would love to hear from you!
I am also receiving feedback on how helpful it is to actually write one's story. One survivor mentioned that, until she wrote her story for our blog, she hadn't told her entire story to anyone but family. She thanked me for the opportunity. I know, from my previous online journaling experience, how writing helps you organize your thoughts and feelings about what's happening to you and what you're going through. It just feels good to vent and get it out there!
So please, keep the survivor stories coming! Let's make this blog the place for the newly-diagnosed to long-time survivors and everything in between to turn to for inspiration and information on breast cancer from people who've been there.
