We Can Rebuild Her: A breast cancer journal

Tuesday, December 29, 2009.

We’ve launched the website WeCanRebuildHer.com to document our journey to making Andrea a breast cancer survivor. The site will feature our views as the patient and supporter and carries the tagline Better than she was before… better, stronger, happier. A Breast Cancer Journal.

Besides being therapeutic for us, we hope the site proves to be a valuable resource for others who are affected by cancer.

Our first post is now live. It features audio from Andrea’s head shaving party which took place at our place on Sunday night. Twenty of our friends joined us for munchies, drinks, cake and to show support as we shaved Andrea’s head. We plan to post some video today or tomorrow.

Watch for us to blog and podcast our road-to-survivorship experiences and thoughts regularly at WeCanRebuildHer.com.

I love what you’re doing as you both journal your way through Andrea’s breast-cancer journey. When I had my breast cancer in 2001, our granddaughter Jo and I journaled my journey together and it is one of my most precious memories. Keeping you both in my prayers!

Andrea, you can beat this. My aunt beat it TWICE! I went to many of her treatments with her. They were never pretty, but she was so strong. She overwhelmed me with her strength. I grew stronger as a result, as I’m sure your husband & your children will also. Keep your head up!

Mark and Andrea,
As A ” wanna be” children’s book writer, I have enjoyed and learned so much from listening to your podcasts. And as a daughter of a breast cancer survivor, my heart goes out to you and your family, with strong wishes to a speedy, healthy recovery.
Be healthy happy and healed.
Sending love and positive energy.

I do wish you well with your treatments. I am now the healthiest I have ever been after three separate breast cancers and treatments. The process comes with its ups and downs but it is so good when it is over. This time I have begun a journey in sustainable living which I talk about on my blog. I credit this new way of living with my current energy and renewed vigor.

That was beautiful. Thank you for the podcasts and the website; I have found some real treasures over the years to share with my daughter. Best wishes!
