Jan Hasak's inspirational blog "Mourning Has Broken" presents reflections and philosophies on what living with breast cancer means to a long-term survivor. Included in many of her posts are allusions to how she copes with lymphedema, an arm swelling she developed from cancer surgery and radiation. Her posts are often laced with tips on what conversations help or don't help a breast cancer survivor. Whimsy and witty, her posts lend a perspective of hope on this subject, despite (or maybe because of) her two bouts with the disease. A motivational speaker, patient-advocate, and author, Jan Hasak is always ready to share her story of rising above breast cancer. As a former patent attorney at a leading biotechnology firm with an advanced scientific degree, she wrote patents for over 20 years.
