My Afterlife Series - Thinking of You

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

An old friend of mine recently chopped her finger off.

It wasn’t intentional and it wasn’t her whole finger, but it was a nice chunk. She was trimming plants in her garden and trimmed her thumb right off along with a stem. Ugh! It must have been awful!

This happened while I…

Life is uncertain: Hug your kids, say 'I love you,' and make the most of the time you have

I have a friend who just found out a relative's cancer has returned. The diagnosis isn't good - the doctors have given him four months to live.

The news was just beginning to sink in . "Four months," she told me. "That's basically a summer. One summer, and he'll be gone."

I know what she's going through - somewhat. Sometimes the people we think we'll have around us forever disappear in a heartbeat. Seven years ago, my beautiful, fun-loving sister laid down with…

ChariTotes- - Support a Teen and Her Cause

When I first met Taylor Greenberg Goldy, I asked her to speak to the person in charge of ChariTotes. Little did I know that this young, bright, 17 year old was the brainchild behind ChariTotes Design-A-Bag!

What a great story…

Silver Lining

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

It was a dark and stormy night.

No it wasn’t. It was a fine night as far as the weather goes, but as we sat our two daughters down in the living room to tell them that I had breast cancer, the storm raging inside my brain was pretty harrowing. I attempted a brave face while my husband told the…

My Afterlife Series - The Wakeup Call

By Susan Keats, Contributor &  Seize-the-Day Propagandist

Greetings from my after life.

I’m not dead yet, by the way, but I had a glimpse of my death recently and I realized, upon considering it, that I was completely unprepared to have it arrive so soon. Why is it that sometimes we need a good kick in the teeth every so often to get us to sit up…

I'm Worried about my health


Being that my daughter depends on me fully and I have to be not only her mother I have to be a her doctor and nurse her counselor and a good example of a mom and woman. I have neglected myself through the years. Being a parent means there will be times that your wants and needs will be put aside.

Why Death has made me want to Live

The most awkward question a person can ask me is a simple, common question you ask someone you don’t know. “Do you have any brothers or sisters?” This can put the person I just met in an uncomfortable position because I have to say “yes, but he died toward the end of my 6th grade year, he had cerebral…

Be Part of the Mo-vement During Mo-vember

Have you noticed recently that there seems to be a lot of men sporting new mustaches? There is a reason for this. By now, we are well aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month (we wrote about it last month). This month is Movember (mo is slang for…

“ I don’t normally like to do this over the phone…but, your biopsy came back.  I’m sorry, you have breast cancer.

And with one phone call, a new life began.

Mom's Breast Cancer Experience

As I shared with your earlier this month and again yesterday, my mom is a breast cancer survivor and is totally enjoying life! I wanted to interview her and share it with you to give an idea of one person's experience with breast cancer, to inspire you to take care of yourself by getting that mammogram you've been putting off, to give more than you normally would toward finding a cure, or to… Continue

My Heart was just not into it

My heart was just not into it…

As you have noticed I have not had a blog post in over a week. My heart was just not into it, as it has been somewhere else. It still is a bit, but I am slowly getting out of my rut.…

The Pink Invasion

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are turning, the temperature is falling, and the over commercialization of the pink ribbon has started.

Yes…it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, that time of year when every product in Walmart, Target, and the grocery stores decorate their packaging with a pink ribbon.  I…

Ageless Skin De-Mystified

I have just celebrated my last birthday in my, ahem, later 40′s and I have come to realize that I am definitely looking my age. Which I have no problem with – really – as long as I “age gracefully”, I am happy with the way I look. I can truly embrace my wrinkles but, at the same time, I still do want my skin to look as healthy and toned as possible without resorting to “procedures”.…

May is Skin Cancer Awareness month!

Did you know that May is Skin Cancer Awareness month?  
I didn't...until just the other day.  Skin cancer is something that most of us associate with the older age, but it hits a little closer to home for me.  I grew up in sunny San Diego, California.  Like every good San Diego…

Another Day

Today I get to do what I love best ... Travel! I have been given the opportunity to fly to another part of the world and experience life in a new and different way. I have been given another day.


Barry Allen Baldwin isn't as lucky. His days have ended, cut short by the evil monster called cancer. Barry was a year younger then I and the father to two young sons. His wife of 15 years will now need to learn to live another day…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
