To my knowledge, as of at least a couple of years ago, Nancy Brinker is still alive and cancer free. I believe most recently she served as George W.'s ambassador to Austria. What a difference has been made thanks to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Editor's note to Eleanor:
Thanks, dear sweet Eleanor, for correcting my facts on Susan G. Komen. I have taken your facts out of this and made the corrections in my post since many readers may not pay attention to comments. Luv you and appreciate your years and years spent working in the field of breast cancer and for what you did to lovingly help my mother!

So, the unanswered question has to be asked: How are you, Ms. Pie?

Here's hoping you are one of the seven.

Hoss --Not yet (knock on wood) and hopefully never. When the tests for the gene that makes one susceptible came out, I wondered if I should get tested. But I decided no, that I would live my life making the best and most healthy decisions that I could and not live in fear of what might happen.

I love your site and its collaborative nature - good luck with the ongoing development.
Thanks for mentioning the breast cancer site that Marjory and I run - your readers might like to know that we now offer a regular breast cancer newsletter - keeping readers up to date with breast cancer news and with personal tips and suggestions for coping.
Many thanks

Thanks for the links to my blog and photoblog.
I haven't made up my mind yet if I should test for the gene. Probably selfish of me, since I have a daughter aged 21. On the other hand, it's very difficult to have the test in this country...
While I was going through radiation therapy, I kept a daily blog in French.

I wish now I had done it in both languages (it would have kept me busier).
I left it online. Stopped it the day my radiation therapy ended though and wouldn't feel like adding to it now!
Anyway, thanks for this great blog you are keeping

Thanks for the great summary. I'm going to pass it on to my mom...who just started radiation.

Excellent post. One in seven. That's scary. Sometimes I feel like we are all just waiting to see if we get it - breast cancer- like a lottery, which brings to mind the subject of prevention.

My friend Sue Richards has been publishing a calendar called Breast of Canada, which focuses on the seven, educating about breast health before a crisis like BC hits. It's all about prevention and care for this particular body part. She's been publishing this calendar to support this particular women's health issue for 6 years now!

Thanks for putting this info in one place for all of us.
