  1. She has a right to speak and express herself. This illness has so many ‘secrets’, why not bring them out into the open? Teach don’t lie.

    So true, divorce is not spoken of because people are afraid it will spread like cancer. Ignore it and it will go away. I had a best friend in the world who fought gallantly and lost his life in 1984 to cancer. I had met a boy a few months later and considered him a God send. Twenty six years later he leaves like a tsunami. I have found understanding here and thank God every day that I found your blog. The silence from my friends and family was deafening. I hope this young lady’s voice rings from the mountaintop and is heard in the heavens.

  3. On Dec. 17, 2008, my best friend of 13 years lost her battle with ovarian cancer at the age of 50. I will always miss her… I love your blog BECAUSE you speak of the unmentionables… and somehow find a ray of sunshine in the ugliness.

    Beautifully said…both from the cancer side and the divorce side. We all deserve to speak out. If others choose not to listen, that is on them, not on the speaker. Hugs to you today. – Fawn

    Find your voice! End the silence! – our voices and right to speak up will never be silenced!

  7. I’m with you on this. Why the outrage about telling the truth?

    Makes me think of those inane comments people make on twitter: oh I put soy milk in my tea. So awful it ruined my whole day. Oh the housecleaner didn’t show up. Now I have to make my bed.

    I’d rather hear about someone’s true struggles and how she’s coping with them. Any day it could be one of us.
