I am living with metastatic breast cancer and I still am not just a statistic, a medical id number, or an insurance file. I am an actual living, breathing person who is more than just an MBC patient: I am usually goofy, fairly klutzy, generally quick-witted, fairly intelligent, stunningly gorgeous, extremely loyal to my family, friends, and New York Rangers, a sucker for "bad" TV, tourist traps, and high levels of tackiness and kitsch. I am still, and will always be, a collector and lover of funny stories; whether it's reading them, watching them, hearing them, telling them, or most importantly, living them.
