Hereditary cancer – do you want to know?

After being involved with breast cancer awareness for many years, I made the decision to go in for hereditary cancer screening at Hoag. It took me several months to finally decide that I wanted to know. My mom’s breast cancer did not have the markers of hereditary cancer, but since my paternal grandma died from […]

I have the trifecta of bad luck in that I have a history of breast cancer on both sides of my family, I am now 40, and I have dense breasts. Unfortunately, having dense breasts means that regular mammography screening is insufficient for me. […]

3 Days, 60 miles, and 4 blisters

As with each one of my seven 3Day walks, I could not have made it without my amazing team sherpas and walker stalkers who cheered us on every step of the way. Day 1 We started Day 1 at the Opening Ceremonies at the Del Mar Fairgrounds and walked down the coast through Del Mar Village. I […]
