This just in…

The spring/summer edition of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation‘s magazine, Courage, is now available. It features an article Andrea was invited to contribute about the head shaving party we had for her in December (page 24).

If you’re new to this site, having discovered it in Courage, welcome! We hope you make your voice heard by sharing your thoughts and experiences as comments on our blog.

By the way… this isn’t the first time Andrea and our website have been in the news. Andrea contributed to the Ottawa Citizen‘s Miracles on Ice edition of the Saturday Observer (Feb. 6, 2010, section B) with a piece about skating on the Rideau Canal during chemo (page B3).

    I know you two may not feel special, but you ARE an incredible inspiration. Thinking of you and the girls as you head into this next phase of treatment.

    I'm so glad to hear about the Courage article! While I wasn't able to attend your head shaving party, I loved your video and I know the article is bound to inspire others.

  • Sarah Stevenson

    It's really awe-inspiring to see how you've truly approached this with courage–including the courage to share your story with others and let it inspire THEM in turn. I hope lots of people see the articles!

    Thank you, Sarah. I do like to think that my going through this might help ease the journey for someone else.

    And I also hope no one else is in the situation at all!

    Thank you, Jay! You'll be at our end-of-treatment bash … and we'll be celebrating many happy events in the many years to come.
