Welcome to my new blog

Hi all,

I am trying out a new way to be in touch with my family and friends.

Yesterday I saw an article in USA Today about a cancer patient who stays in touch with his people via blog. I've been toying with this idea for months and today seemed the time to start!

I will update this weblog more frequently than I have been sending email newsletters, so check in a couple of times a week to see what's going on.

All the best,

    Jill, this blog is a treasure. I do hope you will get the word out that such a resource is available on-line. Whether you decide to include your regular Reports or not, do maintain "Jill's Cancer Journey."

    My only problem is that the title does not seem to do justice to your vast range of activities and adventures. Someone who did not know otherwise would never guess from observing you that you were not in total health.

    Something like "Jill's Journey DESPITE Living with Cancer" might be more like it!

    All my Love,

    Jill, I agree with your Mom's comments that the title of your blog doesn't do you justice because you are more than journeying with cancer. Your courage in living with this dreaded blight s admirable, but there are so many other aspects of your life that are equally fascinating and interesting. To embelish on your Mom's suggested title I'd submit: "Jill's Journey: Living Life to the Fullest Despite Cancer".
    I will enjoy reading your blog every week, but I hope that does not preclude getting e-mail from you periodically.
    Love, Your Other Mom
