Safety Tips to Prevent Your Dream Pool from Becoming a Nightmare

Whether it’s a cosy hot tub, a full-sized pool or something in between, having a private place to take a dip at home is one of life’s greatest luxuries. There is little that compares to shrugging off the day’s troubles with a few relaxing laps or a good book and the gentle massage of…

What Cancer Took From Me

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…

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…

Why I Can't Stop Watching THE HELP



I’m 10, have 5 siblings, an absent mother that yanked us out of our predictable home and away from my father whom I adored. However, she did not. At 28, with 6 kids, all she could understand was how she was robbed of her youth. She did not want to go to church, hang out with the other mothers, sew clothes, cook dinner, shop or clean. She wanted to march in protest lines, stand up for civil rights, hang out in the “hippy” section of Detroit and blare the Rolling Stones.…

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

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…

Save the Ta-Tas - Pink Hair Project

Surviving Time

Time has a funny way of fixing things. Over time, pain is forgotten, the bad times of the past are blurred, fear evaporates leaving only residue, and only the fading scars are left.

January 31, 1996 was a Wednesday and as I look back and remember the day, there wasn’t much on the world radar screen. A lot of things blew up around the world on this day, especially in Sri Lanka with bombs planted by the Tamil Tigers and trucks filled with explosives being rammed into the Central Bank.…

More Thoughts on Breast is Best: Guilt-led breastfeeding





As a vocal breastfeeding advocate, a sex educator and a supporter of survivors of sexual abuse during their childbearing year I have ask myself many times about the validity of “pushing” bf’ing. Yes, breastmilk is best, but if we guilt woman into breastfeeding aren’t we hurting the cause?

And what do I mean by cause? Is it a cause? If we stopped pushing Breast Is Best as if it was a winning hearts and minds military campaign…

Breast Cancer Hope

Although this is written mostly from my perspective, I write this entry with the permission of my beautiful sister Amy who is a true warrior and survivor.



I remember the day last February that my sister called me.



I was sitting in my car in the parking lot at the community college where I was taking classes. My phone range, and on the other end of the line was my sister, barely able to speak. She was in tears after leaving her general practitioner's office and on her way… Continue
