Today is 4-11 — a perfect day for a quick check-in… and “namaste” blessing to all!
On April 1, I celebrated my birthday with a visit to the Self Realization Fellowship Mediation Gardens in Encinitas.
I said a prayer of gratitude and wished for everyone to have the blessings of love, truth, light, (health) and peace — the meaning of my word for the year — “namaste.”
One friend who is in my heart and soul is Sandie Walters.
I was so shocked and sad to learn that Sandie died suddenly from pneumonia in January. Sandie’s spirit will live on forever through DCIS Redefined, a website we created together in 2013.
I am so thankful for the meaningful work I am involved with along with my health, my family and all my dear friends near and far!
Wishing everyone peace, love, light, health and truth.
~ NAMASTE ~

Patient Advocates from across the US and around the world came together to share insights about DCIS at the 2017 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.
The COMET Study Patient Leadership Team presented “Changing the DCIS Conversation: Development of an Alternative Discourse by Patient Advocate Stakeholders in the COMET Study.”
Advocates from the US, UK and the Netherlands highlighted their role as “partners” on PRECISION — “PREvent ductal Carcinoma In Situ Invasive Overtreatment Now.”
This international initiative was awarded Cancer Research UK’s Grand Challenge. Led by Dr. Jelle Wesseling of the Netherlands Cancer Institute, PRECISION aims to distinguish between lethal cancers that need treating, and non-lethal cancers that don’t.
