Frau Schöps is very old and walks slowly with her Zimmer frame into the radiation center. I am ten minutes early today and we chat about cancer and radiation, being tired and living in the same neighbourhood... she had a mastectomy 30 years ago and there are new tumors around her scar and they spread......

You did it again.... you are an asshole, you stupid cancer, and you don't play fair! I hate you! You grew during my bosom buddy Paula's first chemo and now during the second chemo as well?!?

Nurse Fassbender said that once the hair comes back, everyone expects you to be back to normal again,... Continue Reading →

I will not do that again and see for how long I can get away... Continue Reading →

Today is a good day! It is sunny and I am in a good mood despite being tired! Prof. Dr. Breidenbach praises my boob work & cabbage efforts! If it was primary school, I would get a star, as she did not expect the result to be this good - I shall continue and radiation... Continue Reading →

I am exhausted and try to chillax with the kids most of the day .... It is a contradition in itself, I know, but they actually can chill.... sometimes.... and I only need to leave in the afternoon for Düsseldorf, where the Blogger4Charity event takes place. A virtual meets reality event for me - I... Continue Reading →
