This Facebook Companion Blog, coupled with the Facebook community page, Victorious Val & the Breast Cancer Crusaders, connects survivors, co-survivors and supporters through an online community of encouragement and kindness. It offers a real-life glimpse into the personal experiences of breast cancer survivors and is ideal for those who do not have access to support groups, others who prefer online to in-person, or anyone seeking additional support to the services they already utilize. This network is different from a question and answer forum, and is primarily a place to lift each other up and feel supported both during and after the cancer process. This page does not offer medical advice, but instead, provides access to emotional support critical in overcoming cancer. These blog contributors share their journeys to promote hope among the 1 in 8 who will be afflicted with this evil villain, breast cancer. Welcome, Cancer Crusaders!

I’m a symmetry-challenged Baby-Boomer, an artist, writer & closet geek with a day job as a healthcare clinician. In 2008, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thus far, I’ve lived to complain about it — and there’s a lot to complain about, in the healthcare system & in the rampant merchandising of this disease. Change does not happen in silence, so I choose to speak out & question the status quo, with gusto, soul-searching, analysis & research, in the hope that it might help. A little skepticism is healthier than a lot of disillusionment.
