You see her at the store. She, like everyone else, is just picking up her weekly groceries, but on her, your eyes linger a little longer. Her head is covered in a telltale scarf, and where hair would normally be peeking through, there is none. You feel pity for her, thinking she must be so sad about her hair. As a cancer survivor, I can tell you her hair is the last thing she is thinking about. Because while it takes so many of the physical parts of a person, its deeper blow strikes the…Continue

At the beginning of December, on my birthday I gave myself a very peculiar gift. I found a lump in my right breast. A little round, pea sized, lump. My breath stopped by the idea, by the feeling, by the enormity of it.
What did I do? I went on google. The biggest mistake a person could make? Probably, so. I went to my husband. His breath stopped.
Yank’s worst nightmare? His mom had breast cancer, 23 years ago. Nightmare, shitload of it, the feeling of the biggest fear and a…Continue

It’s been one whole year since I heard those dreadful words ‘you have cancer’. When you’re going through a difficult time in life, a year can seem like an eternity.
Having gone through 15 months of hospital visits, countless tests, treatments and worries with my son, we were nothing but relieved when his doctor told us that he was doing well and we could extend the time between hospital visits. But life had something else up its sleeve, and only two short days of being happy after the…Continue

I have a confession to make: I was not always a Green Mom. Just like I wasn’t “born” being a mom, I wasn’t born being green either. Growing up, I ate vegetables out of a can, drank water out of the hose on hot days, and consumed waaaaay too much sugary cereal. As a teen, I sprayed too much hairspray from an aerosol can, threw things away without thinking, and drove every chance I got, even if I was only going down the block.
When I did become a mom, my attitude…Continue
