I'm very curious about all the Illinois ladies who are making this breast cancer journey or who have finished it. Where are you located? What's your diagnosis? Where are you in your treatment plan? How's it going for you?

I thought we might be surprised to find somebody right in our own back yard that could use some encouragement or company.

I'll start us out. I live in Bloomington. I was diagnosed in Nov. 2006 with IDC cancer, 1.4 cm. er-, pr+, her2-. Stage 1 but that horrid Grade 3. Had an excisional biopsy that came back without clear margins. Went to Peoria to an excellent breast surgeon. Had a lumpectomy with sentinel node biopsy. Nodes and margins were both clear. Now I'm headed for my first CMF chemo on Jan. 26th. I'm very nervous about the chemo, which I dread more than any other part of the journey, I think.

Hop on here and tell us about yourself. There may be some of us that are even close enough we could meet for an outing some time.

We need to get an IL (or Chicagoland) group together again. That photo was taken before I was diagnosed and found BCO, but I do recognize Lago (Lauren).

How's everyone coping with the early deep freeze? We had a dusting of snow overnight (yesterday made it into the 50s, probably something we won't see again for months). Only stuck on cars & grass, and most of it evaporated before sunset tonight. After a brief (weak) warmup this weekend, it's gonna get worse. Last night walked to a Portuguese wine dinner in the neighborhood, wearing my new faux-fur-trimmed hooded loden car coat, with a muffler over a suede jacket & a t-shirt. Not toasty-warm but comfy enough to keep the hood down and no gloves. Came out 3 hrs later, and the cold cut through like a knife--the mist that began during dinner had started to freeze. Hood up, muffler tied tight over the top snap, Thinsulate-lined leather gloves barely cutting it. Time next week to dig out the puffer jacket or maybe even the old shearling hooded coat which is 2 sizes too big now. (Might either move the buttons or have the tailor around the corner make it a toggle coat). Not to mention the shearling mittens.

Sandy, would be excellent to get a Chicago group together. Who knows, except the Shadow, what tales we might tell? And, so true, the weather has taken a turn. I don’t mind in my Land’s End puffer. I used to cross the Midway in the blast of winter wearing a jelly green unlined windbreaker and think I was just going to lie down and freeze to death. But now, dressed more fiercely, though never with a hat or hood, it’s easy to walk the 7 or so blocks to the Evanston theatre. Unlike you I get nervous if there’s a movie I haven’t seen. So, tomorrow, after I reread stories for the short story Northwestern class I take, off DH and I will trek to the flicks.

It would be VERY nice if the Chicago group could have another get-together. For old times sake as well as lending their voices and memories in out-reach to those who showed up later on. The group I think ( not sure just how many ) come and read the quotes I leave there still although the group seldom posts.

I will say that so many ( just to name those that stand out ) like Michele T, Susan P, Irene H. and of course the lady who started that wonderful blog Rita H. all worked hard to get me to show up since I'm 4 hrs. South of Chicago ( Maggiano's in Schaumberg which is where the get togethers were held ) but I think a short while afterward it seemed the get-togethers became fewer. I thank those women all the time -- they just don't know it. I've said before I was new to going on a blog so since I felt inadequate about it I often used quotes to fill out how I really felt, but didn't feel so capable of saying in my own words.

The Chicago ladies resonated to it and asked ( this was back in late 2007 ) that I put in an up-lifting quote of inspiration daily. They gave me something to do that pleased and I think often helped everyone stay a bit steadier and stronger and able to plow through many of the less pleasant parts of the cancer process. So, at long last they wanted to personally thank me. They had featured many others before me for a variety of note-worthy traits.

I remember well to this day some of the loving and kind arm-twisting since I didn't see how I could make it happen. They took it on and make it go right. Even Michele T. who was the main person executing the get-togethers and normally the emcee. She finagled getting herself discharged ( no longer contagious ) from the hospital and a case of pneumonia so she could be there. To this day she has no idea what that meant to me ( once I discovered it ) , along with Rita and Susan who gave major pushes to get me there.

A picture and quotes that they presented still hang on my wall and I still have the picture Jan Clare made the yr. before when I mentioned if they would all think of me that I would be there with them. So the yr. before I was there on a table as well. I've never forgotten and still recall with great gratitude how you all made me feel.

So, it would be so nice if all ( or at least several ) could come together to meet other Chicago area ladies that came after. Hope no one minds that I filled out the story a bit, but it was a chance for me to show my gratitude for a group that still evokes my determination ( not so strong at first ) to get well, stay well and honor life -- so much due to them. They are among the special people who have never left my mind for long. Every day when I again put in a quote they become as large as life all over again. Sending love and bet wishes to all.

The Tao Te Ching says, When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. Have you ever struggled to find work or love, only to find them after you have given up? This is the paradox of letting go. Let go, in order to achieve.

Because it has optimism in it, because it's closely allied to cheerfulness, enthusiasm has the power to lift people over the rough places in life. Which of us does not admire some friend who has proved his or her capacity to endure staggering blows, keeping their sense of humor, their interest in things, their vitality intact? We marvel, as a rule, that such people are able to retain their enthusiasm. The truth probably is that their enthusiasm--the love power inside--is supporting them. -Arthur Gordon

Mindfulness is being aware of yourself, others, and your surroundings in the moment. When consciously and kindly focusing awareness on life as it unfolds minute by precious minute, you are better able to savor each experience. Also, being closely attentive gives you the opportunity to change unwise or painful feelings and responses quickly. In fact, being truly present in a mindful way is an excellent stress reducer and, because of that, can be seen as consciousness conditioning, a strengthening workout for body, mind, heart, and spirit. -SuePatton Thoele

The more I focused on lack and on what I couldn't have, the more depressed I became. The more depressed I became, the more I focused on lack. My soul whispered that what I really yearned for was not financial security but financial serenity. I was still—quiet enough to listen. At that moment I acknowledged the deep longing in my heart. What I hungered for was an inner peace that the world could not take away.

When I surrendered my desire for security and sought serenity instead, I looked at my life with open eyes. I saw that I had much for which to be grateful.

People are ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to them, that of plants and animals as that of their fellow people, and when they devote themselves helpfully to all life that is in need of help. -Albert Schweitzer, Out of My Life and Thought



Ethics grow out of the same root as world- and life-affirmation, for ethics, too, are nothing but reverence for life. That is what gives me the fundamental principle of morality, namely, that good consists in maintaining, promoting, and enhancing life, and that destroying, injuring, and limiting life are evil. Affirmation of the world, which means affirmation of the will-to-live that manifests itself around me, is only possible if I devote myself to other life. From an inner necessity, I exert myself in producing values and practicing ethics in the world and on the world even though I do not understand the meaning of the world. For in world- and life-affirmation and in ethics I carry out the will of the universal will-to-live which reveals itself in me. I live my life in God, in the mysterious divine personality which I do not know as such in the world, but only experience as mysterious will within myself. -Albert Schweitzer, The Philosophy of Civilization
