POSTS ON THIS SITE BEGAN WITH MY DIAGNOSIS OF UTERINE (ENDOMETRIAL) CANCER IN NOVEMBER 2013, BUT HAVE BEEN EXPANDING INTO OTHER HEALTH AND HEALTHCARE AREAS AND TOPICS—ALL WITH THE INTENTION OF HELPING PEOPLE BECOME FULL PARTNERS IN THEIR OWN HEALTHCARE DECISIONS AND RESPONSIBLE GUARDIANS OF THEIR OWN WELL-BEING.
ALTHOUGH I TELL MY PERSONAL STORIES, PAST AND PRESENT, I ALSO INCLUDE INFORMATIVE RESOURCES & LINKS—FROM RESPECTED AND RELIABLE SOURCES—THAT EXTEND BEYOND MY EXPERIENCES TO PROVIDE PATHWAYS FOR BROADER PATIENT EDUCATION.*
