About Andrea

Andrea Ross was diagnosed with breast cancer October 6, 2009 and intends to survive and thrive. You can read more from Andrea here.

  • How dare you not be an inspiration 24/7/365 and uplift me? God, some people. It’s almost as if you have a right to feel tired & frustrated sometimes. Courage. Things will go on.

  • I feel guilty when I feel the old pre-c frustration even though I am actually very thrilled to be alive and healthy. Then it goes vicious circle. Maybe you can relate.n

  • When I’m afraid that something is too good to be true I hold back. That part of me is very strong and very stubborn, and I have yet to convince myself it’s entirely wrong. However, it doesn’t need the stress of being in charge of the important stuff, so I try to feed it little accomplishments like singing in the shower or warm muffins eaten while sitting on a park bench at dawn.nnJust sayin’ – you don’t have to be good at the big stuff all the time. 🙂

    Hugs. I guess cancer survival does not turn you into a saint. Darn. Life still has its ups and downs. This too shall pass (and return, and pass again . . . ). Love you.
