I am an active 44 year old from Missoula Montana. I was diagnosed with breast cancer 6 months ago and spent the winter recovering from bilateral mastectomy/oophorectomy surgeries and chemotherapy. I was able to continue running (albeit fewer miles) during chemo. I started doing yoga during chemo for the relaxation and conditioning benefits.

Not even close. As a writer, I have a cathartic need to express myself when I am in trouble - so it's no surprise that I blog profusely about my cancer and my recovery. I was diagnosed with squamous...
