It’s that time of year again, the sun is out and my spirits have been lifted. These past few months have been crazy, so I welcome the light and the happiness. In just two short days me and my baldness will be in New Hampshire amongst the revved up motorcycle engines, wearing pink, and talking about boobies. That’s right! It’s almost Motorcycle Week in Laconia, New Hampshire. I am really excited for this years Bikers 4 Boobies. I have been working my tail off making jewelry, cancer warrior spiders, T-shirt designs, and coordinating everything from hours away. I’m actually already exhausted.. hahaha. We got a new tent this year, it’s hot pink, so we should stick out like crazy. We will be in the same spot, right in front of Weirs The Beef restaurant and across from the Paradise Beach Club.
I had a very nice phone interview with Krista from Laconia Citizen newspaper the other day. I am so happy that she wanted to support our cause and get the word out for Bike Week. So look for my crazy mug in the newspaper. I am also going to be an expert panelist on Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s next Twitter Chat on June 25th at 8pm ET. We will be discussing the financial impact of breast cancer and how to get help. I’m pretty excited, as well as nervous. I by no means consider myself an ‘expert’ in anything, but I definitely have had a lot of experiences with breast cancer and the financial woes that go a long with it. As long as we help people out and give them the tools they need to make their journey that much easier, then I’ll be happy.
As far as my cancer goes I was lucky to receive some pretty good news, it appears as though I have 30% shrinkage according to my latest scan last week. It’s good to know that the chemo is working. The last thing that any survivor wants is to go through the hell of fatigue, hair loss, and feeling down right crappy to have nothing gained. Yesterday I got to have a mini makeover thanks to Hope and Friendship and the American Cancer Society’s
Today I go in for my Eribulin chemo treatment, then tomorrow afternoon I am off to New Hampshire to save the boobies for 9 days. Our new rack cards that I designed will be there, our pink tent, as well as masses of motorcycles that will get an earful about metastatic breast cancer. Here’s to raising awareness! If you can make it up to New Hampshire I urge you to stop by. It’s a great time whether you have a motorcycle or not. You can learn more about Laconia’s Motorcycle Week here. I have also worked on Bikers4Boobies.com.
