When the breath stops, for a while

Yank’s worst nightmare? His mom had breast cancer, 23 years ago. Nightmare, shitload of it, the feeling of the biggest fear and a…

A Year After Diagnosis

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…

Confessions of a Not Always Been Green Mom

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…
