We are looking for bloggers! If you are interested in writing about how you respond to some of the challenges of living with metastatic breast cancer, we would be interested in hearing from you and sharing your writings in our blog area (http://community.breastcancer.org/blog).


Here are some topics that come to mind along the lines of "How do you do it?"

Some ideas:

Staying connected to others (managing the isolation factor)
When possible, keeping cancer on the back burner and living life up front
Asking for what you need/learning to delegate

We are open to your thoughts and suggestions, and greatly appreciate your contributions. If you have an idea for a blog piece, please send it to writing@breastcancer.org.

I'd be interested in contributing, as well. I'm at the beginning of this Stage IV diagnosis and still sorting it out, so blogging is helpful. I've kept a blog through my two previous diagnoses but haven't yet picked it back up - maybe it's time

I would love to contribute - I write a blog Go Home Cancer, You're Drunk (gohomecancer.com), though haven't posted in awhile as treatment lately has taken priority over everything. I'm 41 and living with stage IV met breast cancer, triple negative - mets in bones, liver, lungs, lymph nodes.

Excited to participate!
